Reflections for Police Officer Joseph Kubacki

Through the years my mother, your daughter, has told us, your grandchildren, your story. How brave and strong you were. How you loved and cared for your family. And how proud you were to be a Milwaukee Police Officer. You gave your life to apprehend criminals in order to keep our city safe.
Your pictures reside on my fireplace mantle and I know you keep watch over your family.
Every spring I plant flowers at your gravesite and visit your resting place every week all summer long.
I wish I had known you other than through my mom’s stories of your heroism.
I thank you for your service to the city of Milwaukee and especially your love of your family.

I am proud to call this brave man a member of my family. Although I never met you great grandpa, I feel our similar treats that you and my brother share are too true to deny. I have been a
Reserve Sheriffs Deputy in Indiana for 4 years, and my younger brother a Police Officer in Indiana. So many of my friends have seen your picture on my wall and said you and I look a lot a like. As we approach another year since the loss of you, ..Rest easy hero we will take it from here.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. . Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th 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 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.
