Reflections for Patrolman George T. Hunter

Have just come across this memorial page for George T. Hunter. Very sad story but glad to have found this account of his death. Relatives in Ireland would like to make contact with any of his family.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Hunter and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

I'm so touched that some have remembered my grandfather I never did know him. My Mom barely came close, having been born in 1943.

There was a b&w picture in my grandmother's house with him in a NYFD (Fire dept.) uniform, but I know the story of how he later became NYPD and then lost his life.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 65th 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.

At the age of 63, I vividly recall listening to my mother, grandmother, and uncle speak of the heroic cousin, Patrolman George Hunter, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty while pursuing a suspect on the streets of NYC in 1946, the year before I was born. I remember hearing of my grandfather's attending the funeral, only to pass away himself a month later. I still have the yellowed and fragile newspaper clipping of the shooting. After all of these years, I am grateful for this opportunity to extend all of our pride in honoring the memory of Patrolman George Hunter.

Patrolman Hunter,
