Grandpa you are still remembered. I never got to meet you but have read many stories about you. I am William Gagler your grandson and am now 80 years old and live in Colorado. I was born and raised in Chicago on the South side not too far from where you lived when alive. Attended Gage Park High School across the street from where you lived.
I have your picture still on my shelf, in your uniform. I wish I had met you

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 80th 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.

I am glad that your grandson was able to leave a tribute to you on this memorial site.

Hey there grandpa, I just celebrated my 69th birthday. I have always been sad that we never met or spent time together. I have been to your grave a number of times and it had been strange to see my name there. Just letting you know you are not forgoten and still loved.

Even though I never met you I think about you all the time. I have a memorial of you, your picture, a copy of your shield, and the newspaper artical about your death. Dad named me after you. He was only 17 when you died and married when he was ??; I was born in 1940.

Thinking of you always

Let no fallen law enforcement hero be without a reflection. I honor you Officer Gagler. You were a warrior and fought an honorable battle. I challenge my brother and sister officers on the Chicago Police Department to insure that all of their own have reflections in the ODMP. With brotherly love and respect, Jim Crotty (Former Richmond, VA Police Department.)
