Reflections for Patrolman Ray Melvin Lazear

Semper Fi brother. May God bless you. You will never be forgotten.

This officer was my grandfather who I never knew. He was killed way before my birth. His son, my father William Lazear was a small infant.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 87th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Laslater 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
