To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 69th anniversary year 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

On the 64th anniversary of Detective Egan's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Detective Egan is not forgotten.

Thank you papa for giving me a wonderful father. Just like you he was a terrific policeman and detective. When I grew up, I even had the opportunity to work with him.
I really would have liked to have known you. My father talks about you a lot and grandma was a wonderful woman.
It's taken so long to get your star retired, but it's being done on May 25, 2006. You can now rest peacefully knowing that your sacrifice did not go unnoticed.
Your loving granddaughter,
Katharine Mary
