Through conversations with my cousins, Ptl. murphy was my great uncle, I believe the brother of my grandmother Eleanor Murphy McCready. I am the son of a retired Poughkeepsie Det/Sgt, and a retired Det. from Poughkeepsie. My son is currently MOS NYPD

Frank Murphy was my grandfather. Obviously never knew him as my father (and his son) was born 2 months after he was killed, but proud of him nonetheless. His son retired from FDNY, but has also passed. It is very moving to read the reflections from others that did not know him, but respect what he stood for. Thank you for your kind words.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th 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.

Rest In Peace

I saw the Heavens open up.
The Earth shook with Fear.
For Evil, knew of God's Army.
They were Heroes, Men on steel horses.
