FROM A FALLEN DEPUTY
                              by Duane Preimsberger

Partners, please think kind thoughts as you remember me.  It was God’s will so my leaving was meant to be.  Hear the songs that speak of life’s end.  And to my family, now with me gone, I hope you’ll tend. I loved the job; you know that’s true.  And what made it so special was being partnered with each of you.  I’m up here now where all is good, but I’ll be watching as you patrol the "hood".  For now and forever I’m 10-7.  But some day I hope we’ll partner up again in Heaven.     

Rest In Peace.

Retired Lieutenant Raymond Lloyd passed away on November 7, 2017 in Torrance, California, from complications during a routine procedure in the hospital.  Raymond retired in 1988, after thirty years with the Department.  His last assignment was Lomita Station.  He was extremely proud of being a deputy, sergeant and Lieutenant at Firestone Station.
