To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 56th anniversary year 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. Rest In Peace

Chief Towle,
It has taken over 54 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Colebrook. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Chief Towle, though it's been 54 years, I'm sure many who knew and loved you feel like it was just yesterday. A tragic loss that should never have happened and I hope that the man responsible reformed his ways or found true justice for his actions. You tried to keep a drunk from driving and your actions may have saved lives. It is truly sad that it took yours.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Chief Towle - Thanks for your service to the people of Colebrook, NH. Let your be that "Little voice" which reminds us that despite our higher rank or lengthy tenure, we need to truly assess our abilities before getting in over our heads. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.
