Your heroism and service is honored today, the 81rst 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 dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. I am sure you are proud that your family continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace

I'm writing a reflection of a crime that happened 74 years
ago. And the only thing I can say is that I hope that every volt of electricity that went through the suspects body while strapped to that chair and the feeling that he couldn't break free was 1000 times more painful then what you felt trying to survive.

Now you patrol the promised land where there is no danger rest in peace.

Patrolman Keller,
On today, the 77th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice. It took another three months but your murderer finally got the justice that he deserved.

Patrolman Keller, I just wished to acknowledge today as the 76th anniversary of your murder. You are not forgotten and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Patrolman Keller, you served a vital function in protecting our Railroads. The railroads are one of the reasons this country is as magnificent as it is and they all need good honest men to keep them safe. To think that a nothing like your murderer traded a few years in prison for the electric chair is mind-boggling. I’m glad justice was served. Though your family must have missed you terribly, I know you never truly left them and may even be protecting your descendants today.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

We will not let you be forgotten. Rest in peace, my brother
