Officer Mark “Superman” Vasquez Funeral

This has to be one of the best photo shoots I was part of and one of the hardest to photograph.  Mark Vasquez was a Manhatten Beach Police Officer who succumbed to Myeloma cancer at the young age of 36 leaving behind his lovely wife Lee and there two beautiful daughters and grieving Father and family.  The event was attended by hundreds of Police Officers, friends and family and was very moving.  The event was met with tragedy unfortunately when a Garden Grove Police officer Andrew Garton was killed in the funeral procession.

If you would like to donate money to fight Myeloma Cancer you can go directly to there website to make a donation to the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research.  My photos also were published by Easy Reader News.  Mark and Andrew will always be in our memories for the service and sacrafice they made to the communities they serviced.
