Rest In Peace, Deputy Lawrence Falce, we honor your lifetime of service and pray for the comfort of your loved ones, both blood and blue! What a proud career to end like this. Yet another example of just how unfair life can be!
Rest easy brother, you surely earned it!
From the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Headquarters:
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is mourning the death of one of their own tonight. Moments ago, Deputy Lawrence “Larry” Falce succumbed to injuries he sustained from the violent attack on Sunday, December 31, 2017.
Larry is remembered as an honorable man, who began his career with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in 1981 as a deputy sheriff. Larry started his career working in corrections at the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center and the Central Detention Center. The 36-year veteran worked patrol at Central Station for the past 32 years. Before joining our department, Larry served his country in the Army. He prided himself as being a lifelong public servant, who cared deeply about this profession.
Larry was loved by his peers and the community members he served. More importantly, he cared about so many people he called family. Larry is survived by his sister, Marjorie, and his girlfriend of many years, Deborah. He also leaves behind many extended loved ones.
The San Bernardino Police Department is conducting the criminal investigation. We will not be releasing or confirming the identity of the suspect at this time due to the active investigation. Anyone with information or questions related to the criminal investigation should contact the San Bernardino Police Department.
SOLEMN SALUTE: Law enforcement lines up to honor 36-year veteran San Bernardino sheriff's deputy Lawrence "Larry" Falce, 70, who died of injuries sustained in an alleged assault following a traffic collision in his personal vehicle on on New Year's Eve. https://t.co/oPtXrQO04y pic.twitter.com/WGqe3UudOw
