Reflections for Police Officer Hugh J. Ennis

Officer Ennis,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice as a Law Enforcement Officer. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I think this is my Grandfather's (Frank E. Ennis) father (Hugh Ennis) but not sure the stories I heard as of today was he was shot and killed not struck by a train. I am slightly confused. My mothers maiden name was Ennis as well.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninety-first 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 who was murdered in the 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

Officer Ennis, today marks the 88th anniversary of your tragic death. Railroad workers are at risk all the time, but general public just doesn’t give it any real thought. As a railroad cop, you dealt with crime AND trains and it sadly was a train that took you from those who loved you. It’s a dangerous job for so many reasons but the Railroad Police help protect one of America’s most vital assets, our railroads.

You are a hero and have not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
