I never knew you but you were my Godfather. My Dad worked with you Richard H Blasser was in Bureau 35 years I was 2 years old when you were killed. I would love to know if there is any remaining family

Phyllis, Thank you for your tribute and know that we're thinking of you & your family. May your son's dedicated service never be forgotten.

I can tell you that Special Agent Brock has not been forgotten. The FBI New York Office's ( Conference Room is named for SA Brock and one of our FBI Law Enforcement Law Enforcement Explorer Posts ( was named for SA Brock in 2017. SA Brock's family still lives in NYC and keeps in touch with the FBI.

True heroes are never forgotten!

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 61rst anniversary year of your death. 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.

I just found out recently that your death played a part in the decision of my father, a Special Agent in the Manhattan Field Office who worked on many espionage cases revolving around the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and Alger Hiss cases in the late '40s and early 50's, to move our family to the relatively safer New Jersey suburbs to take the position to head up the new Suffern (NY) Bureau. Your death was truly shocking to my father and other agents working alongside him, and they had eternal sympathy for his widow and three children.
