That day will always be seared in my mind forever. Bob was my training officer and a good friend. We shared a lot of memories, and he is still missed to this day.

I should have been on the bus with you that day but I wasn't. Guess it wasn't my time. I think about you often and miss you. Such a horrible thing to have happen but I will forever have fond memories of our friendship. My best wishes and sincerest apologies go out to Dennis. He sacrificed and should not have been there....

My name is Dennis Grant. I was with Robet Barchey when he died. I was an officer on the bus with him. It has been more than 18 years now and there is seldom a day that I don't think of Bob and the tragic event that took a fellow officer. My life has been changed forever.

Remembering Our Own,

Dennis G. Grant

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 16th 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.

It's been a very long time since you and I talked last. I remember all of the times you would transport up tp Ft. Grant when I was working intake as an officer back in the 80's and I remember most the humor that you always had even when it had not been a pleasant day for you. Your sense of humor kept a lot of us going when we needed it and I miss that sense of humor now but I will always remeber you as I continue to go forward with all things and remember how you dealt with everything and hope that I can do the same.

I was a Sgt. the day we lost you. I had just spoken to you and your partner that morning at the Florence armory. A short time later I responded to the accident. It is hard to believe, even today, how fast time goes. I think of you and remember the sacrsfice you made and it gives me strength. Rest in Peace Officer Barchey. I know you are already aware of this, but they named a unit after you. I was proud to serve there as I am proud to have served with you.
