To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 34th 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

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

I did not know Curt but am proud to say that I work for the same agency as he did. This has changed the community forever. Because of Curts's sacrifice, an Honor Guard was formed at our Sheriff's Office of which I am the commander adn founding member. To mark the 30 year anniversary of Curt's death, we were able to dedicate a L.E. memorial at Curt Felt Park in Douglas County. Stay safe out there brothers and sisters!

Deputy Felt, it has been 30 years since that horrible day.
Things have changed since that fateful day. Today no one
can enter court armed. Most likely your situation contributed
to what has been learned about keeping people safe.
May you rest in peace.

It had been 30 years since Curt was taken from us. Curt grew up in Alexandria, attended and graduated from Alex Tech. It seems that everyone in Alexandria knew and loved him. He was a great guy, and is still missed. I remember talking to him when I was attending Alex. Tech, and thinking what a cool guy he was. He made a impression that remains with me, more then 30 years later. May God bless and comfort his family and friends, today and everyday.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
