Tragedies happen and good men are lost. You only served six months and the city was robbed of your talents far too soon, 111 years ago today.

Rest in Peace, Brother and God Bless you and your descendants.

Another year has passed and you are still admired and respectfully remembered in the hearts and minds of so many. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. You will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 105th 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.

From the 1900 U.S. Census: Clarence was the only son of Charles and Lydia Cummings. In 1900, he was unmarried, living with his parents. He was a time keeper for the DSR in 1900, apparently came "on the job" between then and 1904. Home was on the east side, but I can't make out the street name.
Not to be forgotten.
