Reflections for Deputy Collector William Henderson Foote

Officer Foote
I have to say that your courage and conviction to enforce the law, and to do the "right thing" in this instance is impressive indeed. In that day and time, there were those who did not uphold the law, or treat other Americans equally, in the eyes of the law and our Constitution. Thanks for doing the right thing and doing your duty as prescribed. You are a hero who deserves our admiration and respect. I would have liked to have known a man such as yourself.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 128th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your memory will always be honored and revered as time never diminishes respect.

Rest In Peace
