Reflections for Sheriff George H. Brock

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd anniversary year of your death. I am privilege 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.

I never got to meet this honorable man. I am his Great Grandson (from his daughter Georgia), and from the few stories I have heard, I am most honored to be part of the family. I have lots of news paper clipings and copies of the story printed in the Dective Magazine. Most of it is out of order but just reading about the event, and about who he was just amazes me. Rest In Peace Great Grandpa.

Jim: I did not know your grandfather (he died 21 years before I was born) but I just finished reading a self-published book, The Sandhills Beckon, which gives an account of the event. The author, Maxine Bridgman Isackson, was only seven years old at the time, but apparently, your grandfather served the eviction notice for her family to move into the farm. Mrs. Isackson deliberately changed the names of the evictees -- whether she purposely changed other details or got them wrong because of her tender age -- I don't know. At the time she published the book in 1976, she lived in Brady, NE and her phone number was . Hope this is helpful.

I NEVER GOT TO MEET MY GRANDFATHER HE WAS TAKEN 15 YEARS BEFORE MY BIRTH. TO THIS DAY I WONDER WHAT KIND OF INFLUENCE HE WOULD HAVE HAD ON MY LIFE. WOULD I HAVE GONE INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT? I PICTURE HIM AS A TALL HEAVEY SET MAN AS I AM. HARD BUT KIND AND FORGIVING. I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS I SHOULD HAVE ASKED MY MOTHER BUT EACH TIME I BROUGHT UP THE SUBJECT OF MY GRANDFATHER IT UPSET HER AND SHE WOULD CRY. SO WE NEVER REALLY TALKED ABOUT HIM. WITH REGARDS TO MY GRANDMOTHER WHO I SAW A FEW TIMES WHEN SHE WAS IN A SANITARIUM WAS UNABLE TO HAVE ANY CONVERSATIONS WITH HER BECAUSE OF MY GRANDFATHERS PASSING. I WOULD LIKE SOMEONE TO CONTACT ME IF THEY KNEW MY GRANDPARENTS. TELL ME HOW THEY MET, WHAT THEY WERE LIKE. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU CAN ANSWER SOME OF THESE ISSUES FOR ME. THANKS, JIM ALEXANDER
