Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th 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.

Tpr Mayer,
For the past five years I have seen your picture just about everyday. Whether it was in the academy or at Troop 3. Reading about your death on this website hits home, especially since you were killed on a roadway that I work everyday. Rest in peace knowing that you, and that rest of our fallen brothers and sisters in the Delaware State Police shall never be forgotten. Especially today, as we approach the 52nd anniversary of your death.
