Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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.

Rest In Peace.

Officer Curtis,
On today, the 87th anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Richmond. It sickens me that your murderer was only sentenced to 15 years.
