Today is the 9th anniversary of us losing you. Your light still shines in our hearts my brother and you will never be forgotten. We had the candlelight vigil tonight and got to see your family and Chase's also. We are trying to stay strong for your family and for Chase's because they have been so strong in the face of this horrible loss. I miss you so much Marvin as do many others. We miss your dedication to the Lord in everything you did and that is what most people remember about you. You were always the strong one in the faith and you were such an example to all of us who knew you and worked with you. Paul Smith spoke of you briefly as he did Chase and everyone was touched by his heartfelt comments. He mentioned you giving him a ride home from the courthouse when his car left him stranded just a few days before you left us. He got emotional talking about the things you two talked about on the ride to his house. He, like so many others, really respected you for your commitment to spreading the Gospel. You are fondly remembered brother and you always will be. Continue to watch out over us and we look forward to the day we will be together again. I love you man.

Bittersweet victory today for Marvin. His killer entered an agreed plea of guilty on 6 counts related to the murder of Captain Williams. He was sentenced to 2 terms of life without parole, 3 terms of life, and 10 years for the last charge. Praise God he will never be a free man again. We love you Marvin and miss you terribly. Rest in peace brother, we have the watch now and thank you for walking beside us all the way.

Thinking of you and your great smile and caring attitude. I miss you very much brother and once again, I thank you for being my friend and for setting the example of a God fearing man, father, husband, friend, and for your Christian witness. Your quiet manner impressed us all with how you could get the job done. Thanks for the love and friendship you showed me and all of us. I will never forget you. And, Shawn is doing you and your legacy proud. He is just another example of how wonderful a man you were and how good a father you were to him. God bless your family. Love you brother!

It's been a year since you were taken from us Marvin, and you are loved and missed every day. Although I'm sure you would never guess, you made a difference in how I viewed life and law enforcement. You weren't only out there to make arrests, you put forth the effort to help people, to show them respect and teach them how to be Godly. You never just told someone how to be a faithful servant; you led by example and it was evident in the way you loved your family, treated your co-workers, and honored the rights of those you had to apprehend. Thank you for being that person and restoring my faith that people like you do exist.

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones and close friends on this day. Continue to keep them close to you and watch over them. You have not been forgotten as true heroes never die.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 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 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. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

You were the bright spot in my shift. My respect for you knew no bounds because your love of family and God was evident in everything you did. The patience and respect that you showed for not only your co-workers, but the subjects you apprehended was as amazing as it was humbling. Even knowing that God called you to take your place umong His angels, doesn't make goodbye easy.

We miss you.

You was one terrific guy through all walks of life! There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and Chase! Thank you for bein such a great leader and for protecting the county!! Job well done!!!

I was sorry to learn of Marvin's death and extend my sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you have suffered. Words are insufficient to describe the sadness I feel for the Williams family. May you find comfort in your faith and the support of the law enforcement community.

There are many police survivors who share this same journey with you, and that community will be there to support you. Marvin's memory will be forever honored and revered.

Hello everyone, my name is William Williams,most people call me Willie, Marvin called me Will. I am Marvin's brother, Marvin was older than me by three years. Marvin was a great man of GOD, a great husband, father, son, brother, friend and deputy. Marvin truly wanted to help everyone. He cared for everyone, once he took four inmates to church so they could be baptized. I just wanted to thank everyone for everything. Your prayers are being heard and the LORD is moving and HE is carrying us through this difficult time in our lives. Once thank you for everything. GOD BLESS and we love you guys!

I did not know either of these officers but they are still my brothers. I was honored to help volunteer and support the teams who played at the tournament. Seminole and surrounding communities showed their support for two great men. Saying I'm sorry does not even come close to what I feel for the familys and friends these two great men left behind. So, God Bless all and we will see these angels again....
