Church's first retired Air Force general to serve as a General Authority Seventy, Elder John R. Lasater, dies at age 85 - Deseret News

Monday, June 19, 2017

Sustained as a General Authority Seventy on April 4, 1987, at age 55, Elder Lasater served in that capacity for five years until his release on Oct. 3, 1992. He was called by President Ezra Taft Benson, and served in various assignments in that calling.“My military and Church assignments have just blended over the years,” he told the Church News in an article published on April 25, 1987, not long after his call to serve as a General Authority. “They seem to have gone hand in hand. In fact, I can truthfully say that my Church activity and assignments have enhanced my success in my chosen profession. I enjoyed my military career, but I felt there was something else I should be doing so I voluntarily retired. I never dreamed of anything like this calling. However, as Nephi said to his brothers, ‘I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded.’ ”Whether it be in a Church assignment or in his impressive military career, Elder Lasater tried to apply honor, integrity, loyalty, service and fidelity — the qualities represented by the five points on the stars worn by generals in the military — to all of his assignments.“In the military and in my own personal life, my challenge has been to replace the strong voice of command with the soft voice of reason,” he said in the Church News article.As a General Authority Seventy, Elder Lasater served as second counselor in the Europe Area, as assistant executive director of the Missionary Department, as

RIP— NPAS Benson (@NPASBenson) June 1, 2017The chief constable of Thames Valley Police, Francis Hapgood, paid tribute in a tweet. Thank you to all who celebrated the life of @ThamesVP ex PC Gareth Browning at his funeral today. A sad day for all. A great officer #RIP— Francis Habgood (@TVP_Chief) June 1, 2017Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Ross said: "Today the life of Gareth Browning was celebrated in a ceremony with his family, friends, colleagues and representatives from police forces and organisations from across the country."It is fitting that so many people joined Gareth's family to show their respects, offer their support and share their memories of Gareth."Gareth was a hugely respected colleague with 10 years experience as a police officer."During his career Gareth was member of various teams, including patrol, response, neighbourhood, local CID and custody at Newbury, Pangbourne, Reading and Loddon Valley."Every day he was on-duty, Gareth put his life on the line to protect the public in the Thames Valley. Tragically, on 30 November 2013 Gareth was hit by a vehicle while on-duty in Whitley, Reading."Since the incident Gareth needed constant care and was medically retired from the force. Gareth never recovered from his injuries and sadly he died on 1 April this year."It is a stark reminder that Gareth's death demonstrates the sacrifices police officers make across the country every minute of every day of every year. Gareth was proud to serve and we are all proud of him."The force has supported Gareth's family as well as staff and officers who have been affected by the incident, and will continue to do so."Our thoughts remain with Gareth's family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time."
