March 17, 1953 – May 29, 2019May 29: On Tuesday, we were extremely saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of Industry Station Sergeant James Beamon. The 37-year LASD veteran was the longest-serving active sergeant on the department.
Beamon was at home on May 25th when he suffered a catastrophic medical emergency and was transported to a local hospital. Tragically, he did not recover and passed away on Wednesday at 2:22 p.m. with Darlene, his wife of 38 years, and their three adult children at his side.
“Sergeant Beamon dedicated nearly four decades to this department and that speaks volumes about his drive and commitment,” said PPOA President Brian Moriguchi. “Sadly, he was not able to enjoy the next chapter as a retiree but he left quite an impact on the many men and women who were fortunate enough to work with him.”
