Your heroism and service is honored today, the 97th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer

Captain Craw and Officer Mallory were true heroes that we all can emulate while we wear the badge and go on patrol. I talked about you at length while doing a History Channel program on Railroad Police. I was a Captain for the NYS&W RR at the time I did the TV presentation and the "battle" that took your life took place in my rail yard in (1912) Edgewater (Shadyside), NJ. I am now the Police Chief for the Morristown & Erie Railroad. Rest in peace, you are remembered always. Chief Greiner M&ERR PD

Captain Craw, today marks the 94th anniversary of your murder. No union can justify murder in furthering its goals and the events of that day are a disgusting blot on an otherwise proud history of organized labor. You and Officer Mallory were protecting a vital part of the American economy and it has always taken a special breed to be a Railroad \cop. I thank you for your efforts and pray for your descendants.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
