Your name has been inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs and the National Law Enforcement Memorial and in our hearts. May you forever rest in peace.

Jim was originally from Wheeling, WV and search engines show a couple Hillberrys still living in the Wheeling-Moundsville area. You might try contacting one of them. One of them shows James Hillberry as a relative so there could be a direct connection there.

Do any of you know how to get in touch with Jim's extended family? It is very important and I would appreciate hearing from someone.

Thank you!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 46th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

You taught me well as my training officer - your lessons saved my life.
You became the first of many of my good friends that I'd loose on the job in the next thirty years. I've always been thankful and proud that I had you as my training officer. Rest in peace Jim.

P.S. I still have pictures of that 15' alligator you showed me how to tied-up on one of my first calls.
