SEBA member Dep. Larry Falce was pronounced dead Jan. 2 after a valiant battle to regain consciousness following a violent attack during a minor traffic collision on New Year’s Eve.
Larry, a 36-year veteran of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, was driving on Dec. 31 when he was involved in a traffic collision around 11 a.m. at the intersection of University Avenue and Kendall Drive. At some point after the collision, Larry, 70, contacted the people in the other car and was brutally attacked. Larry was transported to the hospital where he fought to regain consciousness. His fight ended January 2.
Our hearts are heavy from the loss of our friend. Larry was the oldest sworn member of the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department. We do not speak for the institution on the front of the badge but for the people behind it. And like any family, our support for Larry and his loved ones is resolute. He was beloved by many and will be greatly missed.
Donations will be made through the SEBA Fallen Officers Fund, a 501c3 non profit and all funds received will be donated to Larry’s beneficiaries. We thank you in advance for your kind donation.
