Mr. Duvall was my first cousin. His mother and my father were brother & sister. Although I was a lad at the time of his death, I remember it well. I missed the opportunity to get to know him in my adult years. However, I remember his visits to WV and still have a few pictures. I even have a copy of the picture found on this site. God Bless all law enforcement officers.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 53rd 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.

Time never diminishes respect. You will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace

We ask Thy blessings and eternal rest to all our brothers and sisters
Who have sacrificed their very lives in the performance of
their duties. Give their loved ones the peace and
Strength to bear the anguish of their loss. Remove all
resentment from their hearts, knowing that eternal
peace and rest will abide their departed loved ones
forever. This we beg, Thy name forever and ever,

My father, who retired from the department in 1988 with 30 years on, told me a story the other day about his training officer and one of his friends. His training officer's friend, was Mr. Duvall. My father never spoke about Mr. Duvall's untimely death until just last week. You see, my father was there and was still in training at the time. He spoke about Mr. Duvall and stated that Duvall was a very good man and remembered him like it was yesterday. His family must be proud of him and must have good memories. I know one thing, my father will never forget him.

I look at your young face and am grateful for that sacrifice that you made so long ago. You are still very much a part of the Baltimore Police Department, and the agency patch symbolizes the high price that you paid. May all Baltimore police officers wear the patch with great pride, knowing that you and many others gave their lives for it. God bless this hero's family.
