You are remembered today by a Durham native and the mother of a fallen officer. My son, Larry Lasater who was also born in Durham, died when shot on April 23, 2005 during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers while serving with the Pittsburg, California Police Department.

Archie, your sacrifice is not forgotten. Rest in Peace. Your memory is honored and revered 34 years after your death and will continue to be.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Archie gave to his community and the citizens of North Carolina, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 16, 1975.
