Reflections for Police Officer Fabian Dale Dominguez

I cannot find the words even after 27 years, but your name is spoken every day and the memory of you lives on each and every day and in every great thing you were a part of.

I moved in to my new house and was awakened the next morning to the news of your death. I will never forget your sacrifice. Every few years I look up your name and say a prayer for your family and your soul. Gone but not forgotten

Fabian:

January 15, 1995...I can't believe it has been 25 years. I visited today, as I do often, and although time has seemed to have weathered your stone, nothing will ever keep me from honoring you each and every day.

Your name will never be mentioned for the last time.

Upon reflection I know there was nothing I could of done to keep you from going home early that night, while time does heal, every new tear brings new pain, it's been hard to forgive the person that did this to you, to push past the hate, yet I do. I am much older now and have a lot since I last saw you and when I see my own son following in our calling I can only hope and pray that I wont have to do this all over again with him.

Mental Health Peace
Friend and fellow officer

October 11, 2018

A very large part of me died that day. You and I, along with your wife and mine, we were all in the young adult bible study group. I was two years a head of you at the time that monster killed you. I was a police officer that worked at University Health system Police, Bexar County Texas. We talked that night. I knew you were going home a little early that night and found out you were killed after I got home and was taking off my uniform. My wife had the news on and she was getting her nursing uniform on to go to work.


You were our first friend to die in the line of duty, sadly you would not be the last. I was and still am a Mental Health Peace Officer to this day. By 1999 after John Anthony "Rocky" Riojas was killed I was burned out. Nothing I had learned while serving as a Army Ranger in the 2/75 Ranger Bn. was able to help me deal with the loss of co-workers, so I became withdrawn, by 2004 while working in Rockport Texas, I checked into the VA Hospital for help.

Today after 10 surgeries from shot gun pellets in my arm to 13 fractures in my lower back and two on my right foot, the 2nd one just before we were hit dead
on by Hurricane Harvey and three in each eye I am ready to return to the job. On 8-01-2018 my young all white German Shepard will be going to doggie boot camp by her self, followed by me for the rest of our training together and then I plan to return to work, this time with Rockport Police Dept. where for the first time since Former Aransas County Sheriff Mark Gilliam was killed in a two-vehicle wreck. We also became friends after his Group known as The gospel force, performed at our church is San Antonio Texas. By 2001 I was working for him and we sold our house in San Antonio and my whole family now lives here on 8 1/2 acers with two houses on it. I miss you both. A lot of joy and heartache has come with this job sine 1991. We now have a son in his forth year of criminal justice. He is the reason I have pushed past the pain and will be going back into police work as a K-9 officer at the age of 58 years old, he just turned 25 on July 14th,, on that day Mark would have just turned 58, I am 57 now but I will be 58 when my dog "Dixie" and I pass the course. I have shut my life out to the families of other officers. Our oldest daughter Christina has a mental age of a 3 year old and has been in a wheel chair all her life and I am the one who cares for her and paid to do so by the State of Texas, but I long for the day that I can return to Law enforcement and work along side our son. I have spent many hours telling him about the pain of losing a fellow officer. And whole family know to leave dad alone, as I sit alone with tears in my eyes as I watch the funeral of a fallen officer, if Jesus was not my Lord I would not of been able to work past my friends death. I stand for our flag which I have given service to for the last forty years as a Army Ranger and as a Texas Peace officer, but I can only find my own peace and strength when I kneel at the cross and submit to his will as it is written in my Bible.

Although I did not know Fabian personally, I remember all the details of that awful day. I'm sure Fabian is at rest now and helping to watch over other officers. Being married to a police officer for 14 years, I understand the sacrifice families of first responders make every day. My heart goes out to Fabian's family and my prayers are with all first responders.

Fabian...my Brother, 23 years is such a long time. I will never forget and I honor your memory every day and will, all the days of my life. Your baby girls have grown into such beautiful, intelligent young ladies. They are both truly angels. I know you are so very proud of them. Rest my Brother...Rest.

I still miss you brother. Just know it was not in vain. So many lives have been changed and I have seen others come to know Christ because of you. I wish we would not have lost you so soon, but I know you are smiling in heaven when you see the lives you continue to impact almost 20 years later.

Fabe, how I love and miss you. As Jennifer said, you would be SO proud of the girls! Jenn has done a remarkable job parenting them without you and telling them all about you.

I still look at the photos I have of your graduation from the academy. We had dinner afterwards, what a fantastic night it was. Just as the girls didn't get to know you, when you relocated to heaven, I was 6 months pregnant with my now 17 year old daughter. Oh how you would have loved her. I tell her about you, she's read everything about you and knows you would have loved her so much. Jenn and I had some of the cutest photos of all 3 girls when they were 1, 2 & 3 years old.

I know you're finally with Cecelia in Heaven now, Mom, Robert, my son Lance, Bobby and the rest of our family. You can be at peace now and know that you'll never be anywhere other than in our hearts.

We love you, Linda & Paige

Fabian, we remember you as the little freckled face boy that came and lived with us when your mother moved to California. You were a real handfull and each day we chiped away at that outside shell. You became a special man that we were so proud of, will love and think of you often, and thank god we were so lucky to have had our time with you. Bob & Betty

Fabian, You would be so proud of your daughters as they have gone off to college and are doing so well. And, of course, you would be proud that they are now Texas Tech Red Raiders!
We miss you so much and still feel your presence.

Officer Dominguez,
Even though it has been 16 years, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of San Antonio. It took another 12 years, but your murderer finally got the justice that he deserved. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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.

Rest In Peace

Today I was doing some research on Texas executions and I read of your brutal murder. Your memory is honored and revered and we thank you for your service to your community. Life may move on but the hurt of losing a beloved family member or friend never goes away...pain and pride are forever. I pray for solace for your loved ones.

My cherished son, Larry Lasater, was murdered while serving as a Pittsburg, California PD officer on April 24, 2005. California has a much longer average stay on death row, thus I do not think it is likely I will live long enough to witness the execution of my son's murderer. I know that some other family member or friend will be there for that part of our journey.

The San Antonio Police Dept. should be commended for their support of your family on the execution date. God bless Fabian, his family, and his law enforcment family.
