The World War II Memorial is located on the site of Memorial Field, which is behind the former Lakewood High School. It was built in 1947 as a tribute to Lakewood students who died in World War II. Tony Bohn of Wheat Ridge designed the monument. It honors the following men who fell defending their country: Rags Addenbrooke, Ray Brannaman, John Bray, Dale Broman, D. E. Cline, John Borak, Herman Gerke, James Jellison Jr., Danny Johnson, Kenneth Mayberry, Robert Molham. The Lakewood Historical Society revitalized the landscaping around the memorial, and the Lakewood Garden Club now maintains it.
