Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Claude W. Kimball

Deputy Kimball, it has been 75 years since you were taken from us. Northern New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your law enforcement service.

Deputy Kimball,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Penobscot County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

While for the past twenty years the town of Holden has been under the police jurisdiction of the Holden Police Department, in 1948 it was not. Still, we consider Deputy Kimball to be one of our own, as his life was taken in 'our' town while he was on-duty here. In his honor and memory, a plaque is displayed in our Training Room. Thank you for your service, Deputy Kimball. We hope and pray another police life is never taken in Holden, Maine; nor anywhere else in our country. Unfortunately, we all know better...

Holden Police Department

Rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Deputy Kimball, today our office salutes you. 68 years ago you gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Although our profession has greatly changed over the years, one thing remains the same, we will not forget our own.

I am privileged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you.
Your heroism and service is honored today, the 64th 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 diminishes respect. You will always be remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace
