I never got to know you. My mother wouldn't tell me anything about you. What ever I learned about you was on my own. I've seen the pictures of the patrol car you were in when you died and read the reports. Your name was placed on the memorial in downtown St. Louis. The only picture I have of which is in uniform)is placed where everyone can see it. I often wonder how different my life would have been had you lived. I am proud that you were and still are my father. I miss you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 60th nniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was 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.

Officer Johnston,

On 09-25-2011 I met your daughter on a crime scene I was working and she spoke of you fondly and still displays your photo in uniform on her living room wall. I'm sure you know how much you meant to her and how proud she is of you. God bless you for your service and sacrifice to your family and community.
