Oscar C. Hanson was my mother's great-uncle (her grandfather was his brother, Alfred). She was only four when he died, but she grew up hearing stories about him.

Rest In Peace

Agent Hanson, you did a job that was never popular and became meaningless just a few years after your tragic death, but while you did it, you stood for law and order and you upheld that law. You truly earned the title "hero". It's now been 88 years but you have not been forgotten.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

I'm Oscar Hanson's grandson. The opportunity to know him and have him be part of my life is something that I've often thought about and more often wished life was not so demanding, particulary of those who give theirs for the sake of others.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 74th 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
