What a terrible, senseless loss to his family and the community. One of the bleakest nights Kansas City ever experienced that night on the Paseo to lose four law enforcement officers from the same incident. My condolences to any surviving family and to his law enforcement family. Rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixty-first 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

Patrolman Neaves,
On today, the 58th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served during WWII.
