To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 81rst anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

Rest in peace Brother. Although the city has much likely changed drastically as time has passed, we serve the same families protected by the same patch. May our work be done in honor of your sacrifice to the community.

We'll take the watch from here.

Officer Burke,
It has taken 77 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served in the U.S. Army during WW I.
