My father, Irvin T. Mulvihill (Tim), was 2 years old when his father, Lloyd, died. He never knew his dad. Lloyd was killed because he was going to testify against John Dillinger at his trial. Which of course never happened, because Dillinger escaped from jail before the trial. My father, Tim, passed away 12/04/2005, and I pray he gets to know his dad now!

Patrolman Francis Lloyd Mulvihill:
It is so sad that the names of John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson are so known. It is your name Patrolman Francis Lloyd Mulvihill that should be known. You are a hero and a man to be looked up to. May you rest in peace and thank you and your family for the ultimate sacrifice. WE are a better people today because you walked among us yesterday.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. . Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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 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 grew up in the area, my grandfather told me that he was in school with your children when this incident occured. You made the ultimate sacrafice that day, and your brothers remember it. It hurts me everytime that Hollywood makes the scumbags that were a part of that gang look like "folklore legends". The people that matter know that you were the real hero that easy brother...we got him at the Biograph
