Chief of Police William James Kittrell is my great grandfather and one of his daughters, Nettie Pearl Kittrell Fuss, was my grandmother who had just turned 7 on December 14, 1890. He is buried at Alta Vista Cemetery in Gainesville, GA. Memorials for him are in Washington, DC and Forsyth, GA for fallen police officers. As well, there is a picture of him that I was able to provide to the Gainesville Police Department a few years ago.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty-first 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.

I was saddened to see that Christmas Day is the eow for so many, many officers. Rest In Peace

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....
