Your heroism and service is honored today, the 109th 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

Uncle Charles,

Your story was kept alive through the generations of our family. Those who knew you are all with you now, but I am so proud to have been able to further preserve your memory. I have visited your grave several times and have always been touched. Unfortunately, more than a hundred years since your death, dedicated officers like you are still falling in the line of duty. My gratitude goes to all of you, and to those who continue to serve.

Your niece--Suzy

Charles, although I do not know the circumstances surrounding your death...I do know of the unique dangers of your (our) profession. I instruct a course on officer safety involving railroads and your memory is honored by each officer in every class I teach. God bless.
