Your heroism and service is honored today, the first 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 who was murdered in the 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.

I pray for the solace of 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 today. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

I had the pleasure to work with Mr. Brooks for ten years in Madison and I will say he was truly a great officer, person, friend, and mentor. Every time I see a police motor unit I thank god I had the pleasure to work 10 great years with such a fine man.

A great honor and tribute to a great man. Me and my father were on the motor unit together for 8 years before he was taken from us. Where you saw the two of us patrolling the city on bikes now to me having to ride alone. He was my father, my friend, and my partner. I love you Dad and you will always be remembered!!!!
