Your heroism and service is honored today, the 56th 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.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace

For State Highway Patrol Officer Frank J. Hossler:

Our duty as law officers who patrol takes us onto one of the most dangerous battlefields - a United States highway. No matter the amount of training, nor the caution exercised by any of us, the tragic result of a crash can bring us serious injury or death. We regret that our brother Frank had to become a statistic in the fifties. The carnage continues to this day - a concomitant of rapid transportation.

We pray for Frank's family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. Our wish is that his memory of valiant service never fades from among them.

I am proud to render Patrol Officer Frank J. Hossler and final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)

I attended the Ohio State Highway Patrol's memorial service for the first time this past May and was moved by the dedication the Patrol has for remembering it's fallen officers. I was also greatly moved by the number of family members who come back year after year to honor their loved ones...some who have died over 50 years ago.

My boyfriend is a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. I have always been proud of his job and his affiliation with the Patrol, but am even more so after attending the service. People always use the "words" "you will never be forgotten. The family of OSHP live by those words.

I refuse to allow one of my "brothers" to go without a reflection. Your legacy lives on in every Trooper in the great state of Ohio.
