Reflections for Lieutenant Owen Davenport

He was my maternal grandfather. His murder disrupted our family in a profound way. The last child of his just passed away this spring 2020. I was only 5 so I don't have a lot of memories other than being on the farm near Fredonia when I was really young.

Eternal rest grant unto you, Great-Grandfather, and may perpetual light shine upon you. May your soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifty-fourth 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 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

I remember Owen and his family living in Lyon County KY. Owen was a giant of a man. He was gentle, kind, big hearted and loved his family. Such a loss of a very fine man.

After this tragic incident I lose the whereabouts of his family. I went to school with one of his children, Janice, and would like to hear from her if she should read this.
