Reflections for Captain Ronald G. Peifer, Sr.

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

We cannot fully honor our heroes of the present without paying tribute to our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th anniversary year 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 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. We shall never forget our 9/11 heroes.

Rest In Peace.

May you continue to rest in eternal peace captain. Thank you for your many years of service to the N.Y.P.D., and continue to watch over your loving family. Many of us who were there are getting sick, and will some day join you. God bless you, the N.Y.P.D., may your family find solace in your loss, and always keep your good memories alive. Until we meet.

Capt. Peifer,
On today, the 2nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the USAF during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

My father loved being a Police Captain. The NYPD was his life and he lived to serve. He was smart, brave and caring. I am proud of all his accomplishments. I am his oldest daughter Dawn and I miss him so much! I love you Dad. Rest in peace.
