Although it has taken 123 years to recognize my great grandfather Hugh Coyle with my research beginning with hearing his daughter, my grandmother, Catherine Amy Coyle-Fell-Harris tell the story how her father was killed by a "bandit." Fortunately before she passed I was able to give her the insight how the "bandit", Martin Reed came to cross paths with her father. Rest in peace Hugh Coyle, and until we meet again! Your great grandson, Tom Harris

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 121rst 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.
