Uncle Tunney,
I've been thinking about you today, I wish I could have known you more than a 3 year old can. I still have memories of you making me laugh until I cried. You were always so much fun. Danny is doing great, he is the most amazing father, he has 4 beautiful kids and a lovely wife. Anyway, just wanted to drop you a note to say hello. Love you.

It doesn't seem possible that it's been 29 years since you were taken along with John. I remember you from the late 60s when you were working GIB at 17 S. Then you came to Squaw Peak working dets there. You went from a chubby kid to a skinny kid. You really relished those styrofoam rice cakes you use to eat. Because of you, john and most of the dets at Sq Pk we ,on the street, had a good working relationship together. We put a few bad guys away..
You won't be forgotten my friend...

Dan, You and Don were the two PPD officers who got me interested in getting into policing. You both gassed up your squad cars at the Richfield Station at 36th Street and Indian School while I was working there. During 1968/9 I rode with you numerous times as a c/o out of the Sunnyslope (storefront) Sub-station. I joined your department in mid-1969.

You were dedicated and informative, with a GREAT sense of humor. I learned a lot from you and the guys at the 700 District and was thrilled when that same squad was my first assignment after graduation from Class 85, PPD.

I later went to the Scottsdale Police Department and was the PIO there when your accident occurred. It was one of my saddest days. I will forever appreciate your mentoring and professionalism. My sincere condolences to your family, friends and co-workers.

Rest in God's Peace, Buddy. And, keep up that contagious laugh!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

When I assumed command of the Detectives at Squaw Peak Precinct, Dan was one of my detective sergeants. From day one, we got along exceedingly well. I have never seen a more capable officer. He could do about anything that he put his mind to. I thoroughly enjoyed our relationship. When I was PESB commander during the last year before I retired, Dan would often come down and visit me. He felt comfortable in sharing personal information and I felt honored that he would do so. Dan, I still miss you and probably always will. Rest in Peace my friend.

It is very comforting to see that my Brothers friends and coworkers have kept him in their thoughts and still remember him after all the years that have passed by.I kind of expected not to see current reflections, people and things tend to be forgotten over time. So this is a truly touching kindness to my heart and spirit knowing he touched so many so profoundly and is still being remembered.
Thank You All.

It has been many years since the tragic assault on these officers. It sincerely broke my heart to hear about this tragedy. To the family and friends, all my blessings and may the good memories stay strong and God bless you all.

I enjoyed working with Dan back in the days! He will always be missed.

When I graduated the academy I was assigned to south phoenix and Danny was a Sergeant down there. He was one of the most knowledgeable street cops I ever worked around. But more then that, he was willing to teach rookies like me what he knew, and he took a personal interest in my safety and career.He was one of a kind.The day Danny and John died, was one of the worst for a great many people; including me.
