We are heartbroken to announce that beloved team member, Timothy Staples died in the line of duty while searching for a lost hiker on Mt. Baldy, December 14, 2019. Tim was a loved and dedicated volunteer of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department West Valley Search & Rescue team for nine years and a beloved high school teacher and coach at Damien High School in LaVerne, California. Tim is survived by his new bride Katie, his parents and sister, and friends too numerous to count. We would like to thank the community, near and far for all of your support and outreach. Please continue to keep Tim’s family in your prayers. Thank you.
