Though you died long before I married into the Claycamp family, I feel like I had gotten to know you by all the articles written about your death. Thank you for your service. Your sacrifice and that of your family hasn't been 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 51rst 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. Rest In Peace

July 14th so it has now been 50 years since your life was taken and so many peoples lives were changed in your town. Your family, your friends and the whole area lost a hero that night. I have thought about that night several times over the years and how a posse was formed to keep the 2 responsible pinned down thru the night as they were on foot. I was part of the posse and they were found on the 3rd day. I remember that there was alot of talk about getting him out of the jail and stringing him up on one of the court house trees. They then kept a guard on him at the court house jail 24 hours a day until they could get him moved to a more secure place. That was my first taste of being around crowd mentality. I know you have been patroling the streets of gold all of these years. God Bless you Officer Al -- Rest in Peace my Friend.

Officer Claycamp it has been nearly 50 years when your life was taken by an idiot that had no respect for human life. I lived in Wakeeney at that time and considered you a friend while there. There were many nights when I would be at the business where I worked and see you making your evening rounds. You were a hard working family man just trying your best to make our town safe and paid the ultimate price for doing that. Rest In Peace Officer Al

Brother Claycamp,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” It is an honor to be the first to leave a reflection in your memory. May the memory of your service, heroism and sacrifice remain forever. RIP brother. AC
