Sherman E. Webb was my great-grandfather.

I never knew him, but I'm proud that he has been remembered as a man who was committed to our country by being a police officer. It isn't an easy job, and even routine procedure can become deadly.

His son, my grandfather, George Thomas Webb served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

His grandson, my father, George Kenneth Webb, served as an Army MP in Germany in the sixties.

His other grandson, my uncle, John Webb, served as an Airman in the Air Force.

I am proud to come from such a long line of people who believe in this country.

My grandmother, Opal Webb Frank, was sister to Sherman. I remember hearing of Sherman at a very early age. I am very pleased to see that he has finally been recognized by the Chanute PD. Even all these years later, his family has not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the eighty-first anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

My father, Kenneth Webb, was a brother to Sherman and I remember him talking about Sherman, and how proud he was of him. He had a big picture of him hanging in the living room of our home for years. I do believe that an injustice was done regarding my uncle, as far as the city not recognizing him as a police officer that was killed, accidently or in the line of duty. He needs recognition, even if it is after the fact. His family needs closure.
