Quote from history written by Capt. Herbert Weeks: "Arthur Fischer was killed on January 18, 1932. He hit a horse with his motorcycle at night on the Hempstead Highway out of Houston. Glen Rose was his partner. We came in about 2am and my wife told me that Capt. Hickman wanted us to come to the Boulevard Funeral home. We stayed there until about 4pm, and started to Bartlett escorting the hearse with Patrolman Fischer's body in it. Near Elgin, I hit a series of large holes in the asphalt road and nearly fell in front of the hearse. Captain Hickman was following the hearse and he said he saw the tail light on my motor over the top of the hearse. Fischer's father was riding in the hearse and he nearly had a heart attack because he knew if I fell that the hearse would run over me for he was following too close. At Elgin, Homer Garrison met us and escorted the body on to Bartlett and sent us to Austin to go to bed. He was driving the only car in the Highway Patrol at that time. This was a Buick Coupe that belonged to Chief Phares. The following morning I had to get a new rear wheel and tire for my motor due to hitting the holes in the road the night before. We went to Bartlett for Fischer's funeral and several of us served as pallbearers.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 80 years.

Rest In Peace
