Today I returned home after riding my police motorcycle from NJ to Washington DC with Law Enforcement United. I wore a memorial bracelet in honor of you Officer DeLeon. I took you on one last motorcycle ride. If anyone from Officer DeLeon’s family can contact me, I’d like to send the bracelet to you.

Officer DeLeon,
On today, the 36th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Houston. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Remembering Ed today and all that he meant to his family. It still startles me each year when I celebrate my youngest child's birthday and I remember the sadness brought to a family and a city on this day 13 years earlier. Hal and family, we will never forget Ed and his sacrifice serving the Houston community. Forever in our hearts.

For some reason Ponce has been on my mind more in recent weeks... He and Pat were great friends of ours, (the Dunbars) His life was taken from us, much too soon... His passing changed us forever. As years have passed, lives have changed, children have grown up, marriages have ended, other friends have passed, but the years spent with Ponce as a friend are precious and the memories are cherished...

Even though the years have gone by, the memory of my brother and best friend is strong. There is not a day goes by that I not think of him.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th 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.

Rest in peace, hero. Keep an eye on us as we continue to patrol the streets.

Officer Deleon was one of my training officers as a rookie police officer. His knowledge and personality helped a nervous, inexperienced police officer learn that not all persons are crooks, to trust your partner, and that your authority comes from the very people that you serve. He is truly missed.
