Reflections for Deputy Warren LaRue

This is the 50th anniversary of the day our family received the tragic news that you lost your life while serving as a law enforcement officer. I am writing this because of the pride I feel in calling you my uncle. My mom, Kathryn Cartier Wood, often spoke of you and through her words, I thought of you and Aunt Eve as quiet souls, kind, reserved, and dignified. Two family members that deserve to be remembered with love and respect. Thank you for your service, Uncle Warren. May you and Aunt Eve rest together in much deserved peace.

I remember you as a sweet, gentle man, who adored his wife and his first Grandchild, Lisa. He was killed when she was 21/2 years old the day after a visit to see her. He would have been so proud as she has had a distinguished Naval career of 38 years. He never met his Grandson, who also has had a long, successful Air force career. Evelyn his beloved wife was very lost after his sudden death and never really found her way again. I trust that they are together again now. I wish you could have met your great Granddaughter. You would have adored her. You are not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 40th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 40 years.

Rest In Peace

Dear Deputy La Rue; the circumstances of your death and that of your partner, Deputy Stone, were taught to my 1975 MCSO academy to illustrate the hazards of Civil Process and Warrants Service. Years later I worked for a long time in MCSO Warrants and never forgot these lessons learned. I'm sure your death served to help protect many others in this hazardous activity. Thank you, your partner Deputy Stone and his Phoenix PD son, Dale, for your unselfish and brave sacrifices for the citizens of Maricopa County and Phoenix.

I have thought of you often thru the years. You and Evelyn filled a lot of my teenage memories. My father has since passed away. I hope that you are spending time together. God bless you.
