Reflections for Federal Prohibition Agent Murdock E. Murray

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged 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.

Agent Murray, this date marks the 83rd anniversary of your tragic death after only 21 days with the ATF. Your effort to avoid the farmer says you were a hero in that you put your own life at risk to save another. It’s a testament of what kind of Agent you would have been had you been given more of a chance. I would say it’s a good indicator that you never truly left your wife and children and remained with them, even after death, to watch over them and act as a Guardian Angel to them.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
