Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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.

Time never dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace, I thank them for sharing their devotion to you by their loving reflections.

The sacrifice of you and your partner on that fateful day serves a fine example of the dedication of the Detective Division of the CPD. As a fellow detective, thank you.

I can't think of a day in the forty years I have been married to your daughter when your name has'nt come up in conversation. You would be extremely proud of your daughter. She is a great wife and a credit to a great father. I love her very much and love you for creating her. You would love all of your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

There is so much to say.. I wish I could have met you. The stories Mom has told me about you are wonderful. You sound like a great father. I am sorry you missed out on so much with your family. Looking at this memorial and realizing that my daughter is the same age Mom was when you passed away makes me very sad for both of you. I think about all the special times you missed with Mom and her family. You missed Mom's wedding. She married a great guy. You would love him. They have raised 5 happy, health and successful children and have 8 beautiful grandchildren. I hope you are watching all of the these wonderful events. I feel that you are. I hope you and Mom can find some peace in knowing that you helped raise a wonderful daughter that has gone on to have a good life despite missing you all the time. I know she thinks about you all of the time, misses you every day and would like to have you here with her. Love, Amy, Mark, Allison and Paul

It is hard to find the words to express what an impact you have had in all of our lives. We grew up hearing such wonderful stories about you. My only regret is that I did not have the chance to meet so I could have wonderful memories of my own. You would be so proud of mom. She has achieved more than any father would hope for their daughter to achieve. It is with much pride that I say my grandfather was a Chicago Police Officer.

With Love, Kathy, Kevin, Molly and Liam

The loss your family has suffered is unimaginable to me. I know that my mother carries you in her heart each day, not only the saddness, but the happy memories she has as well--how you spoiled her (and she knew it), and how special you always made her feel. The time you had together was tragically short. I wish I could have known you. But I wish more that you could see the rich and full life your daughter has led. What a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother she is. But in my heart, I believe that you have been seeing it all, and guiding her through. You must be so proud.
Love, Jenny
