Your resting place is now marked, thanks to many individuals. I heard a lot of stories from your first cousin, my grandmother, about the day that you died.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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, not even 80 years.

Rest In Peace

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Officer Houser.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” You will never be forgotten.......RIP brother.
