I am proud to learn that an ancestor of mine served in law enforcement. That he was tragically and accidentally shot and killed on duty does not diminish the honorable manner in which he served his department and community.
I am a retired peace officer, having served in a variety of capacities in California for forty years.

I am privileged to be among the first to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th 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

Your sacrifice shows how dangerous police work can be even on the most common of assignments. Although it has been 91 years know sites as these will not allow your sacrifice to be forgotten.
