To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd anniversary year of your death. I am privileged 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

I only have faint memories of you, fleeting glimpses when you came to Medford to visit. I have visited with my mother (your sister) about you as I grew up and know how close you two were and how much she loved you. The most memorable story is how you were setting a can for her to shoot at with a BB gun and she shot early hitting you in the finger. I wish as all others who knew you that we could have had as we were growing up.

I wish I could have met you, but your memory lives on in the stories I hear of you. Remembering you and all you have done. I look forward to meeting you in the future. Love you Grandpa.

I remember David whenever I hear of a Police Officer falling in the line of duty. I was working as a patrolman the night he was killed. It was only though extraordinary effort on the part of the second officer (Bill D.) on scene that he was not also killed. He fought the shooter, hand to hand, finally disarming him and handcuffing him to the pipes beneath a bathroom sink. Davids death in the line of duty was the first time, as a young patrolman, that I faced my own mortality. You don't forget that moment, and I won't forget David.

Don't cry for me as I'm still Here

Even if its only to whisper in your ear

To help you, to guide you, to keep you safe on the job

For its this promotion I truly love

Assigned by Heaven to be at your side

From call to call, with you I ride


October 17, 2006

I only knew of you from your partner. I followed you on the WPD. Just hope your family is aware you are not forgotten by your law enforcement "family".
