Mickey, Rick, Chris and Jason;

Words are insufficient for both of us.

So many wonderful personal and law enforcement memories that last forever and best written by Chief Papanek.

Larry's significant life touched many, many people in wonderful ways. His loyalty to his friends was wonderful. His belief in service to others is significant.

For these and many other reasons we are going to miss him terribly.

It is with great sadness upon learning that Larry Atchison had passed. I extend my most heartfelt condolences to Larry's immediate and extended families. I have known Larry since the day he became a deputy sheriff with the MCSO. Deputy Atchison was an exemplary deputy in all aspects of his career and it was an honor to work with and supervise Larry Atchison throughout his career. Unfortunately, as the years went by we lost contact with each other but I would frequently think of Larry and his accomplishments as a deputy sheriff and a person. I can still vividly remember going to Larry's garage and listening to Larry describe his work with passion much the same as Larry would describe his law enforcement career. May Larry Rest in Peace and may God look over his soul.
