Reflections for Patrolman Ronald E. Borg

P.O. Borg & family, I have never forgotten the sacrifices you all made have to grow up without a father. I worked to a plaque in your dad’s honor displayed in the lobby of the Wheaton PD nearly 20 years ago. I left Wheaton in 2004 to accept a Chief of Police position in Central Illinois but I have never forgotten you all.

I think of you every day. It has been along time since your passing and it seems like yesterday.
I was so proud of you as an officer and tried to follow in your foot steps but the memories were to strong. I feel bad for Rob and John as they do not have any memories of you.
I will continue to think of you and love you till I see you in heaven.

Patrolman Borg, thank you for your service. Two of your beautiful grandchildren, Marilyn and Judi, are married to two of my sons, Bob Jr. and Mark. They have a total of three beautiful children, your great grandchildren. You would be very proud of them all. Rest in peace sir.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 45th 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. It is unfortunate that corruption was at the root cause of your death.

Rest In Peace

Ron was my brother-in-law and I visited him often. He was elated to be a police officer for Wheaton. Our family has been involved in public service (Police and Fire) and Ronald was a proud part of that tradition.

My father served with you and tells stories of you. He remembers picking you up the day you were taken from this earth.
He is the one who put the incident details about you in the ODMP.
You sound like a very good man who loved his job and family and I'm sure your family is very proud of you.
God bless

My Brother-
It has been 36 years since your death and on 09/11/02 you finally have recieved the recognation you so deserved. Your badge, Star # 13 , is now formally retired but your memory and sacrifice will never be forgotten. As President George H.W. Bush said when he spoke at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial many years ago, " It is not how they died but how they lived"
May you finally rest in peace- your tour is over!
