Reflections for Officer Sherrold H. Gorton

Officer Gorton,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC during World War II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

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.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 50th 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 pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Officer Gorton, it has been many years since your death, but as I read the page dedicated to you here at ODMP I mourn your death. No officer should have a page w/o reflections...and although I never knew you and wasn't even born until 14 years later, I respect you and the sacrifice you made in the name of upholding the law. God Bless You, Officer Gorton...may you rest in peace.
