Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th 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 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.

Rest in Peace Brother...Never Forgotten...

It always saddens me to come here and see an officer w/ no reflections. I know you were murdered in 1918 and that is quite a long time ago, but here today in 2004 I want to say that your life meant something and that I thank you for trying to protect the streets and people of Akron back in 1918. I don't know if the person who murdered you was ever caught, but I hope so. The method in which you and Officer Hunt were murdered was cowardly and cold-blooded. God Bless you, Officer Costigan.

With respect and admiration,
