Reflections for Officer Tony Jackson Garrett

I’m the son who was born a month after this accident. I never knew my dad, but I am very proud of him and happy to see this and the nice reflections others have left for him.
Thank you all.

The longest 45 minutes of my life and the saddest days of my life. Tony struggled to stay alive. He had good reason. His wife was 8 months pregnant with a child he would never see. This incident changes the lives of all in the department and community, but not as much as his wifes.
Cpl. Donnie Bates was critically injured and Georgia State Trooper Buddy Horton was also injured.
Like many others, Tony was a Viet Nam Veteran, only to come home and loose his life.
I will always remember you, all of those hurt duirng this incident and your willingness to come to my call for help.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 36th 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

It is sad to discover that this brave officer does not have a reflection. Let me be the first as his sacrifice should not go unnoticed. Although we come from a different country you will be remembered. Thank you and your brother/sister officers who have joined you for looking after us.
