LAPD Officer Passed Away

Post by plinker » Mon Sep 02, 2019 8:51 pm

It is truly sad to hear the passing of a brother in blue.

Officer Gil Cardinez, with the LAPD Valley Traffic Division who was suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia has passed away today. This is truly sad for he has been fighting strong against this but unfortunately lost.

There is no articles regarding this for I found this out from another friend through social media. I will update this post as I get updates regarding his memorial service.

Officer Gil Cardinez, you are 10-7, 10-42 for the last time.

May you Rest In Peace Sir.

I didn't expect to see this on here... Officer Cardinez was a good friend of my father... we had a BBQ fundraiser for him at VTD not that long ago... really made me sad when he came home with the news

I saw this on Instagram as well, but didn’t know the circumstances. Very sad to hear. May he rest in peace.
