To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 119th anniversary year 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 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.

People like Capt. Jones are the real AMERICANS that built this nation. Oh that GOD in his great mercy would send us more men like him in this dark hour that our country faces. My friends the enemy is not just at the gates, our enemy sits in seats of high power in our goverment. Remember when a country has no borders there is no country to define a people and their land. Our poor nation is asleep at the wheel. Capt. Jones and so many paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and American way of life.

Rest in peace as you patrol with St. Michael and all fallen
heroes in heaven.
Your story marks the passing of time, and it marks the sacrifice you gave. It marks the legacy you left to your family, your department and to all your brothers & sisters in blue.

I have perused this web site many times to honor many of the Officers from my home State of Massachusetts. I just recently acquired some C/Ds' for Christmas of the Old TV Series Tales of The Texas Rangers. I have made it known for many years that I was a fan of the show and that the series was directly responsible for my Law Enforcement Career, resulting in my looking into the Departed Texas Rangers. It sure is sobering to see your name sake listed. May GOD be with you and all the fallen who gave there lives for the job that needed to be done. Only Heroes live forever in this domain. Glory won on the field of battle is taken to the grave, and can never be taken away.

Capt. Frank Jones' memory will soon be graced in a book writtn by his descendant Candace DuCoin. I have had the pleasure of transcribing the map drawn from the actual report for the book. Peace be with you.

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). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

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