Your heroism and service is honored today, the 123rd 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.

Your memory will always be honored and revered for time never diminishes respect.

Rest In Peace

Patrolman Ellis John Ellis,

The occupation and the duty of a law officer, especially in the late 1880's, did not attract persons to don the uniform because of the high pay. Some where, among the population, stood exceptional people who sought to make a safe world for others around him. Such was Patrolman Ellis who died in the course of keeping a world free of culprits and thieves. That he would be struck down and lose his life is an act of those who minds have been seized by the devil. Courage, Valor and Dedication speak for Patrolman Ellis now, and they call him a hero among heros. He has found his place of Honor among those who have died before him. And, they have surely have welcomed him deep into the place they now share beyond the evergreen shores of eternity. Well done, Patrolman Ellis, ... well done.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
