My father D. Wayne Gore operated the funeral home next door to police station and heard the police car come in from the incident. He got dressed and carried Washington Bennett and Deputy James Lang to Gadsden Holy Name of Jesus Hospital. Mr. Brad Sackton (taxi driver) rode in ambulance with them.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 61rst 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.
