Dear Daddy,
I was only two years old when you died. But I still think of you over fifty years later. I think of the things Mom told me about you and wish for others to know them, as well as about this horrible incident.
You flew a piper cub airplane you owned .. until it got smashed up by a hail storm. You were apparently good at story telling .. childrens type stories. You had a dog named Lucky. Your parents died when you were an infant as well. You had three sons and one daughter (me). You were stationed at The Panama Canal in the Army Air Corp. You liked elephants.
As for me, I worked in social services for over twenty years. Guess it's in the blood. Enough for now. Know that you are remembered. (Thank you to whoever is providing this page).

Another year has passed and you are still admired and respectfully remembered in the hearts and minds of so many. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. You will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th 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 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.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Officer Fancher.
