Terry Abbott was my father. I was born a week before he was killed and never knew him other than through the many memories of my family, friends and those he served with. I was at Fort Knox when the US Army honored him by naming the CID building for him. My respect goes out to all those who serve our country in the military and in law enforcement. We are safer because of their service and sacrifice.

I met Terry when I was a Senior at Logansport High School and he attended school in Flora. I have many memories of Terry and of our times together for the 2 yrs. we were dating. I met his mother and stepfather and later worked with his Aunt & Uncle. He was a super guy and so much fun to be around. His '59 Impala was his pride and joy and he kept it in pristine condition. The news of his death was a shock and I will always remember Terry and still visit his grave when I am in Indiana. My prayers and best wishes go out to his family. He was a true and honorable soldier.

He is my oldest brother and the oldest in our family. The honor that Fort Knox Army Base bestowed on him was more than any of us expected. I will always miss him and wonder what kind of man he would have become. He is in heaven with some pretty wonderful people now...and is now waiting for the rest of us to join him and get to know him better. God is great!

We will never forget. In addition, CID headquarters at Fort Knox dedicated their building to Terry's memory and it is now named "Abbott Hall". RIP

I am privileged to be the first to leave a reflection for such a couragous man. Your heroism and service is honored today, the forty-first anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. You will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
