On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your Partner for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Chicago. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary 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.

The sacrifice of you and your partner will never be forgotten by the CPD. The actions of you and your partner that fateful day probably saved lives. It is another example of the dangers of police work involving domestic incidents. Thank you for your service.

It is a pity nobody has written more about you or your sacrifice. I found you out of curiosity, because we come from the same blood-line, and we are both cops.
Our family helped forge this nation. Two brothers, Henry and Charles Connolly came to America in 1697 from County Armaugh Ireland. They came with a charter from the King Charles of England to found towns. One of which was Charlestown (Charleston) SC.
The family has served with distinction ever since. We have fought and bled in all of America's wars. Several others have paid the ultimate price for service as peace officers.
Our heritage is something to be proud of, and so is your honorable life.
Thank You and Rest in Peace.
