Reflections for Patrolman Clarence Frueh

My father, born 1905,was 18 when Officer Frueh lost his life. He had shared that story with me several times but, I never knew the details until now. I found information in old newspaper clippings on Internet. I am not sure if the murderer was ever positively id'd. It was believed he was the same person who had killed another police officer and a civilian in or near St. Louis. Clippings available on request.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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

On this the 85th anniversary of your death your sacrifice and service are remembered.
Rest in peace as you patrol with St. Michael and all fallen
heroes in heaven. This type of death is always tragic and
senseless. Yours no different.
