I am privileged to be among the first to pay tribute to you.
Your heroism and service is honored today, the 75th 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. You will always be remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace

Capt. Snellin,
Sir, it has taken over 75 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO-but to our Country as well when you served during WW I.

Captain Snellin, no fallen hero should be without a reflection. The years cannot diminish the sacrifice that you made. Thank you for your service to the citizens, the community and our Country. Rest in peace, you are not forgotten.

Norman Sutter.
