Uncle Stan I never had the pleasure to meet you God took you before I was born. However today as the hearse for another fallen Detroit Police Officer passed by on their way to the church I felt their pain. I pray that God gives strength to that family and the many others as they try to cope with their loss. My heart goes out to all!

I was only 11 years old when you passed way but I remember you as if were yesterday. I will always remember you as the nice Police officer who gave a guy a break and let him fire first which cost you your life. There are a lot of family members up there with you now to keep you company. Mike Magliocco

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 60th 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I am sure you are proud that your family has continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace.

Thank You for the inspiration to follow in your footsteps Grandpa. I will put on that uniform everyday and wear it with pride. I will serve others as you did. I will put my life on the line daily to help protect the innocent. I will do my best to be the family man you were. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

I love you Grandpa.

Officer Jerlecki thank you for your service and hopefully the actions of those that are now serving make you proud to call us brothers. Sir you are the measuring stick by which we judge our action and hopefully emulate your dedication. I must also thank your son for writing on my future son in-law Josh Norris (EOW Jul 5th 2007) , as the 5th approaches I have been re-read his page and your sons simple statement of survivor rings so true. Bless your family sir .

It's been so many years, but we still grieve. We miss you always and I ask a special favor Dad, watch over Erin and Jim. They too, like you, felt the need to serve the City of Detroit as Wayne County Sheriff's. Help keep them safe from above...I am not ready to make any more sacrifices. Love You Always, Dolly

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
