Remember this day well, I was a curious 16 year old visiting from Shreveport in Bossier City. The police cars, plain cars and ambulances were passing with sirens...which we soon followed thinking there was a possible crash at Barksdale. My friend and I soon witnessed this tragedy after driving out into that open cotton field....a day I will always rememer.

OMG!! My maiden name is Huckabay, I being born in Tallulah, LA. Somewhere down the line, I'm sure this man is kin to me! First time I've ever heard of him, but that means nothing, I'm sure.

Chief Huckabay,
On today, the 59th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Shreveport. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. You sir, are a true hero-you didn't hesitate to go to the aid of a fellow fallen officer. I wish we had more leaders like you in Law Enforcement.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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 and your memory will always be honored amd revered.

Rest In Peace.
