It's been almost eight years since I wrote on this page. So much has changed. I wrote about how volunteering and internship opportunities within the law enforcement community symbolized a bond between us that had grown. Now, I am honored to say that I am a Deputy Sheriff with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Everyone asks why would I want to be a part of this career and why do you want to go to patrol. The answer is I want to and will have the career that you never could. I want to go to work everyday to honor your memory and your sacrifice. As I prepare for patrol (15 days away), I have become more humbled about the journey to come. Thank you for being such a big part of me and who I am. I know you will be watching over me and will be my own guardian angel.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th 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.

Jillian, I hope you and your family are involved in the Southern California chapter of COPS.

Rest In Peace

I have only once been able to talk to my grandma about what happened, but that only brought both of us to tears. I still find her looking at his picture in the hallway once in awhile, but I don't ask because I know.

I never knew my grandpa, but I miss and love him just the same. I constantly find myself wondering what life would be like if he were still alive. It has been 46 years, but I still believe that he is very much with us in the memories of family, friends, and the presence of his spirit among us. We all miss him, we all love him, and I think my stumbling across this page while looking for volunteer/internship opportunies within police departments (a part of him inside of me I believe) was his way of saying "Hi, remember me?". Yes, I remember you, we remember you, and always will.

I came across a print out of this web page on my father's desk - Dale Felger. (My father is David's baby brother.) Though I never knew David, I am so very proud to be part of such a wonderful family, and very saddened for my father's loss. (David would be proud of his son, David Jr. He too is very special.) We are burrying another uncle today, David's brother-in-law, Mike. (Husband to Deone Felger.) Mike passed away on Saturday, January 19, 2008. (He was a retired sheriff.) Both will live on in our hearts and memories.

I never met Officer Felger. I was looking through the histroy of all downed officers, when I came across that of Officer Felger. I was born on Sept. 14, 1962. I have always been and still am, moved every time a law enforcement officer is down. Perhaps because I always wanted to be a law enforcement officer, but my vision prevented that possibility. Now, at 43, I doubt there is any chance. As a single dad of a 14 year old, I can only imagine the sorrow and pain Officer Felger's son must have gone through. I hope all turned out well for his son. God bless the Felger family. Victorville, CA

I worked with Dave Felger, and rememeber his death well. I believe his young son was 4 years old at the time. I was assigned to David's Harley Davidson Motorcycle after it was repaired. David was actually in pursuit of a traffic violator when cut off by another motorist. David was buried in Sunnyside Cemetary in Long Beach, California. God bless David Felger and his family.
