Dad and Mom, I know you both are on the other side of the veil, but the Governor of the State of Tennessee signed into Law HB1522-SB2694 on April 13, 2018 that State Route 61/ U.S. Highway 27 from 1951 South Roane St.( in Harriman) to the intersection of Patton Lane and U.S.Highway 27 ( Harriman/Rockwood City Limits) has been designated Trooper Roy Mynatt Memorial Highway. Family, Friends and Law Enforcement will gather at 1951 South Roane St.(TDOT) in Harriman for dedication ceremony August 10, 2018 at noon. It has been fifty year and six months since your accident.
You Grandson, Mark, had approched Senator Yager and Representative Calfee to sponsor State Senate and House Bills both were passed with Governor signing into Law. Family has grown from mom and five children left behind at the time of your accident.


Still miss you, Lots of Love

I have been trying to get the roadway where Trp. Mynatt' accident occurred named for him, both for his service to Tennessee as a trooper and as a soldier. It is the least Tennessee citizens can do. Just have much luck in getting it done legislatively. Such a shame for a man who his all for Tennessee.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 44th 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.

Time never dimishes respect.and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. I thank them for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.
