To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first 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.

It has been 81 years since your ultimate sacrifice, but it will never be forgotten thanks to a site like this. The West Park District Police Department, part of the Chicago Park District Police Department, was incorporated into the Chicago Police Department in 1960. The CPD will not forget your sacrifice.

Park Policeman Locashio, today marks the 77th anniversary of your passing. Policing a park may sound like a nice pleasant and uneventful job, but it has the same risks as any other police job. Your efforts on behalf of the citizens who used that park and the sacrifice you made have not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
