We were grade school buddies growing up in Hyde Park and graduating from Bret Harte Elementary School. We lost track of each other and I regret that. No surprise you became a police officer....Your death was a tragedy for your family and to all Chicagoans you chose to serve and protect. Rest eternally at His right hand.

Rest in peace Officer Hauser I was just watching an old clip of the Channel 2 news on WBBM-TV. Your valor along with your partner's made your donning of the checkerboard cap, badge and uniform the ultimate salute to your bravery. My father was a New York City Police Officer for almost forty years.

I was just reading an article about what police have to deal with and suddenly thought about Greg & Ray. This is how I found this site.
Greg & Ray use to go to Dunkin Donuts at Grand & Harlem.
We use to sit and chat about all kinds of stuff including all of our dumb jokes. I was in EMS with a private ambulance company and also with the Chicago Rescue Squad but lived on the NW side.
These two guys were so down to earth and really cared about their community. It was so heart breaking the night I found out what happened to these two fine officers.
Chicago's 16th & 25th dist, Elmwood Park, River Grove, River Forest, Oak Park, Norridge police departments were all involved in the search of this cop killer. Eventually, the suspect was found under a porch. I honestly don't know how the officers who caught him kept their cool and acted in such a professional manner. Maybe that is why I was never an officer.
I will never forget this night.

When I reflect on the many happy childhood memories of Gregory, I am soon reminded how much I miss him. It's very comforting to know that others besides me and my family still remember Greg and miss him. God bless you all and keep you safe.

I cannot believe it has been 21 years since you and your partner were tragically shot down that fateful night. That incident proves the dangers encountered in police work on the most common of calls. Thank you for your service.

Greg was one of my best buddies growing up in the Hyde Park neighborhood. We hung around together when times were much less dangerous. Graduated together from Bret Harte Elementary school in 1961 and then lost track of each other. Then one day so many years later I saw the news............it didnt surprise me one bit that Greg had chosen to serve others....he was that kind of guy. Rest in peace my old friend........ill see you again some day and we can catch up.

Your heroism and service is honored today on the 20th 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. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 15 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for those who miss and love you.

Rest In Peace.
