To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 35th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged 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.

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your daughter for sharing her devotion to you through her reflection.

Dad,
You were such an honorable man, giving your life to your country, first as a 24-year member of the Armed Forces and Viet Nam veteran and then for a year as a corrections officer for the state of Kansas. But what I remember most is what a great father you were. I still miss you and love you.
