Ranger Fonda,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just a Law Enforcement Officer but also when you served during the Korean War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd 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 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.

Today it has been 47 years since mom and I lost you... I only today found this website. I am leaving tonight from Texas with your Granddaughter Abbey and heading for Colorado to see mom. You would be so proud of her...72 years old and still the best skiier I know. I love you dad and have missed you every day that I have been alive. You are within me every day and now are within your two grandchildren. Always, Marta
