Here's to the many nights of chasing bad guys and the many beers we tossed back laughing about it afterwards. You loved the job and your many friends loved you.
It's been a while since you've passed but the memories are fond and still very fresh.
Never forgotten my friend!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th 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.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Rest In Peace.

I remember you as a young sailor when you visited Wellington, New Zealand twice on the USS Truxton in the 1980s.

I am very sad to hear the news. It has been years, but my family and I will never forget you.

You and your family will be in my prayers.
May you RIP in God's loving care.
