Officer Kreps,
On today, the 101st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Los Angeles. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Officer Kreps, you would be proud to know that your son, Kenneth Ray Kreps -- just six at the time of your passing -- followed in your footsteps, serving and protecting others at great personal sacrifice. He was a World War II hero, surviving the devastating December 8, 1941 attack on Clark Field in the Philippines, then fighting alongside Filipino infantry before eventually making way to Australia. He ascended in rank to full Colonel and served as the personal pilot of Henry L. Stimson, the Secretary of War.

You had three grandchildren: Sharon, Kenneth, and Michael. Kenneth served in the military for 25 years, the last 10 with the White House Communications Agency, where his responsibilities included providing vital communications support both home and abroad to the President, Vice President, and their families.

You have too many great- and great-great-grandchildren to list. We've all been blessed by your legacy.

Wishing you God's richest blessings,

Your great-grandson.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd 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.

Rest In Peace.
