Reflections for City Marshal Charles H. Newman

City Marshal Newman,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Hugoton. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Attention: Hugoton Police Department

The City of Hugoton Police Department is looking for relatives of City Marshal Charles H. Newman. Marshal Newman was killed in the line of duty on October 15, 1931. He was married to Lauretta L. Newman. Members of his household in 1930 include John S Newman, Muriel Newman, James C McCarty and William Newman. We have information that the family moved to Haswell in Kiowa County, Colorado sometime between Marshal Newman’s death in 1931 and 1940. Kansas Law Enforcement Academy recently erected a new memorial to all of Kansas fallen Law Enforcement Officers. When they took down the old memorial they returned the stones bearing the officer’s name to the department which they served. The City of Hugoton Police Department would like to be able to present this stone with Charles H. Newman’s name to members of his family. The City of Hugoton was honored to have him serve as City Marshal and think it is only fitting that the original memorial stone be returned to his family. We would appreciate any assistance the public can give us in our endeavor to further honor the memory of a man that died serving this community. Thank you for any assistance you can give us.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd 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.
