My Detroit Police Officer father was your cousin & we were a close family. I remember growing up going camping with you & your wife Joyce. You were like my dad a dedicated Detroit Police officer through & through !
I hold on to those fond memories & your great smile.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 50th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged 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 pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

He was my best friend. I still miss him dearly. The driver of the vehicle was all doped up I believe he received 3-15 years in prison. John had a wonderful family. God Bless him.
