Reflections for Railroad Detective Fred H. Wells

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 90th 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.

Rest In Peace

It has been 90 years but thanks to this web site your contribution will never be forgotten. I imagine that night you were working by yourself, doing your duty, and serving the public. Thank you for your service.

The job of a Railroad Police Detective/Officer/Special Agent is not an easy one, especially in this day and age when railroad police seem more of an expense to some lines than a necessity. Detective Wells, you made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting one of America’s greatest assets, its railroads. You went out, day in day out alone to protect that asset and for that, you are and always will be a hero.
God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
