Reflections for Police Officer Elmer M. Cox

I am priviled to be among the first to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 87th 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.

Phyllis Loya
Mom of fallen California Officer Larry Lasater, Pittsburg PD, eow 4/24/05

Officer Elmer M. Cox appears in the 1920 U.S. Census report for Detroit as being born in 1890 in Tennessee. In that year, he is rooming in a boarding house at 349 Beniteau by himself.
He is not forgotten.
