Newton Dangerfield Boles was one of my heroes when i was a boy after being told that he was a sheriff and that he was killed by a bank robber.Playing "cops and robbers" and watching westerns on t.v. is what us guys do when were kids.The imagery of horseback chases with guns blazing going after the bad guy vanished when as an adult i read the they were in cars and that he was killed with a cheap semi-auto pistol! My mother was born just short of a yr. after he was killed. He left behind six kids. We all missed knowing a very kind, honorable man.
Praise all who fallow in this work. they deserve it!

I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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 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. Rest In Peace.
