Just tragic! The coward who killed you Officer Thomas and he was a relative! Rest in peace.

A cowardly act took your life and left your family without you. I only hope that your murderer faced TRUE justice, not the mere 9-18 years he was sentenced to, if not in this life, than in the next.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
God Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 92nd anniiversary 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.

You left such a large family to mourn you. I hope your widow had support to help take care of ten children.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
