Trooper LaVelle,
On today, the 82nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served in the U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Trouper Leo LaVelle was my great uncle. I was so happy to find this memorial page about him. My father James Leo Hughes would always tell us kids stories about his Uncle Leo and how much he loved and admired him. Uncle Leo left behind a young widow Marge and his only son Thomas that was about 4 years old. Our family is so very proud of our Uncle and still to this day honor his service and memory.

Thank you for this opportunity to tell our story.
God bless you all and keep you safe.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 77th 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.

Rest In Peace
