His two sons, Zachary and Jacob, and daughter, Carmen
Officer LaFollette drowned while training with his department's Scuba Team at Dale Hollow Lake.
The dive was in total darkness utilizing new underwater communications gear.
Officer LaFollette failed to surface when his air supply was low and did not respond to radio communications. He was found later at a depth of 100 ft. It is believed he went down in the darkness instead of up and drowned.
