Reflections for Deputy U.S. Marshal George W. Dillaway

William Dillaway was married to my great Aunt Louise who I knew and visited with as a young boy. I was fascinated by the stories my family told about him. I was given his handcuffs (which were the old style HEAVY kind) and badge. She also gave me an antique cast horse that I still have on my amour; and seeing it every day I still think about him.

Just this year after seeing this official report of his death gave me pause and I was amazed that the drunk officers WERE NOT prosecuted! I totally agree with Ptl. Jim Leahy, Jr.'s comments above. RIP Uncle!

A disgrace that the drunken guard were never prosecuted regardless of the killing of two law enforcement officers. I can only hope they learned something from their actions and suffered remorse for the rest of their lives. Thank you for your service to the United States, Marshal Dillaway.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 1ooth 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.
