Sgt. Cates,
On today, the 96th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Durham.



May 28, 2009

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th
anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my hometown and the birthplace of my son. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

You are remembered today by another 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. Your sacrifice is not forgotten. Rest in Peace, Sgt. Gates.
