Reflections for Patrolman Joseph M. Fitzpatrick

Joseph was the son of Daniel and Honora Fitzpatrick of Glenduff, Mitchelstown, County Cork in Ireland. Census records of his birth no longer exist but he was remembered and talked about by his sister (and my grandmother) Mary Doherty until her death in 1982 at the age of 98

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 84th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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

Your actions that night carried on the rich tradition of the CPD. Please know that although it has been 80 years we will not forget our own.

It takes quite a man to fight off five men. You are a true hero and a shining example of the best in law enforcement. Enjoy your reward of patrolling God's streets, knowing that you will never be hurt again. Keep a watchful eye on the rest of us as we continue to fight the good fight.
