I heard stories of my Grandfather talking about a Uncle he had in Law Enforcement, I never knew your name or that you were a Police Officer in Austin, until I moved here. You were a true hero, and I hope I can do honor to the name we share.

Chief Littlepage was killed in a shootout within 200 ft of where I currently live in Austin, TX. I am a landscape architect currently designing a memorial plaque and garden at a church across the street from where he was shot. We hope to permanantly honor his ultimate sacrifice while trying to bring a murder to justice.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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.
