To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 107th 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.

The tramps caused your death, plain and simple and how unfortunate, but you did your job regardless of the risks and helped to protect one of America's greatest assets, it's railroads.

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