Reflections for Special Agent George C. Montgomery

Agent Montgomery,
On today, the 114th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice as a LEO.

It's always seemed to be the case that the person with the influence and money manages to get away with things as the power they wield causes folks to back off. You apparently were of a much stronger character and took a stand. How tragic it cost you your life. Tragic for your family of course, tragic for the railroad but also tragic for the entire community. No doubt the impression was that, with you out of the way, the ranch owner could do as he pleased. Your courage and sadly, your sacrifice proved him wrong.

I pray justice was truly done to all involved, if not in this life, then in the next. I also have great admiration for your son who at the age of 10 took it upon himself to chase the murderer down. Obviously he got his courage from you and I can't help but wonder what became of him.

Though it's been 113 years, you have not been forgotten thanks to who ever submitted your name and this website.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 113th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged 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.
