Semper Fi Brother. You are in our prayers as is your family. You will forever be in our hearts and minds. Thank you for your dedication and service and above all, your sacrifice.

Officer Fred Kowolowski is my uncle. Fred pulled a motorist over on Christmas Day eve in 1938, issued a warning and was hit by a drunk driver. His brother Ed Kowolowski retired from the CHP in the 1970's and was killed falling a tree in 1980 in Alturas, CA. Louie Kowolowski and Ella 'Schneller' Kowolowski both have passed from natural causes.

I never met Fred, but the stories I was told tells me that he was a great man and a Outstanding Officer and a credit to the California Highway Patrol.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd 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 who was murdered in the 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.
