Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th anniversary year 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 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.

On the date of Patrolman Lioacona's death he was working the midnight to eight shift in the first precinct, zone four, his partner was Patrolman Joe Piffit.

At about 2:00 AM I was investigating a auto accident at the intersection of Brunswick & Southard St. Plt. Loiacono was passing the scene and recognized one of the drives involved in the accident as friend or someone he knew. He asked me if I was going to issue a summons, I told him that since it was a fairly minor accident and no one was injured and I could not make a determination as to who was right or wrong. I could either give both parties a summons or neither a summons. At his request I did the latter. He thanked me and resumed patrol.

About two hours later Patrolman Loiacono was killed at that same intersection.
