Georgie I was only eight when you died, you were buried on my eighth Birthday. I will always keep your memory alive, your family has missed you so much, you have missed so much of their lives.
You were so brave to go into that building the day that senseless act of domestic violence took your life... Love You!
Your sister,

Dad, today is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. There has not been a day in my life that I have not thought of you and missed you terribly. I am very proud of the profession that you chose in life and mostly proud of the person that you were. The pain of missing you is still very raw but I will always continue to strive and be the kind of person you would be proud to call your daughter. Thank you for the example of living and working in a profession that you loved and strived to do a good job everyday. Love you, Carol.

In 1955 I was a young police cadet assigned to the Fourth Precinct (Fort and Green). I was on duty at the time Officer Krueger was shot. I can still see the sad faces of the police officers in the station house as they wept upon learning of the death of their brother officer. After forty-six years serving the public in law enforcement, I retired as chief of police in Milan, Michigan. Because of George, I think I was a better officer.

I never knew my father because he was killed when I was 3 years old. I heard stories how he loved being a policeman by serving his community and representing his badge with honors. I will always be proud of who you were dad. Carol.

My father was a Detroit police officer for 27 years. In going through some of his old photographs today, I came across two reels of View Master photos that he took of Officer Kreuger's funeral. If anyone in the family would like them, (you would need to buy a View Master Viewer to see them), I would be happy to give them to you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. 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 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

My father, Arthur LaVigne, served on the Detroit P.D. from 1954-1960 so he may have known you. He then went on to retire from the Flint P.D. in 1987. May God bless your family and may you rest in peace.
