My thoughts & prayers to the Lasater family. I was fortunate to have met Uncle Tom, visiting with him at numerous family functions. He had a very kind & caring soul. I’m sorry for your loss. He is sleeping peacefully now in a better place.

With a heavy heart I wish to send my condolences to the Lasater family. Tom " Coach " Lasater was my athletic trainer while I played football at Galveston Ball in the late 60's and early 70's. He was quite a motivator. I will always remember his reply when me or my teammates would come to him worn out, beat up, seeking his training expertise, ( or a little break from the rigors of practice ). " Motion is the lotion" would be his reply, a pat on the back side, and out the training door you went some how feeling a little better. Later in life, Tom became one of my cherished customers as I operated my HVAC business in Galveston. I always allowed more time when he would call for service, knowing we would be sitting in his garage going over the countless high school yearbooks and talking about the past. I will be forever grateful for his friendship. Ted Waterman Jr.

Tom Lasater was one of the best men that I have ever met, one of the best administrators I have ever been mentored by and one of the kindest souls I have ever engaged. Vaya Con Dios!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mr. Lasater was my principal when I was a young teacher at Ball High. I have always remembered him as such a kind and decent man. I am glad our paths crossed.

R.I.P. to a great person. Mr. Lasater was my elementary school principal at Alamo ES during the early 80s I believe. He did a lot of spectacular things for GISD. He’ll be sorely missed. May God bless his soul, and may God bless the Lasater family. May he Rest in Eternal Peace in Heavenly Paradise.

A gentle giant has been silenced but his warmth and compassion shall resound loudly in the memories of those who were blessed to know him.

Great administrator many years ago I started working as an office substitute. I entered Central Middle School where Mr. Lasater was Principal, as I entered the main office I heard yelling and and not so nice language coming from a parent who was not having a good day and was spreading the experience to all. Mr Lasater was so sweet he stood at the counter and just...just looked and tried to get a word in ...Any way I signed in and went to the office where I had been assigned to. This is the memory that stays in my heart Mr Lasater found me and apologized for the inappropriate behavior I had walked into 😀 wow such a gentleman I reassured him I was fine and there was no need to apologize. 😔 Great caring person ❤️
