HPAC Mourns the Loss of Member Ricky Arenivaz Valdez

Dear HPAC Member,

The Hospital Police Association of California (HPAC)  is deeply saddened by the loss  of our valued member Ricky Arenivaz Valdez on October 9, 2021.  Officer Arenivaz Valdez lost his life as he traveled home from his job protecting patients, staff and the community at Coalinga State Hospital.  His life was tragically taken by a suspected DUI driver.  He leaves behind three teenaged children whom he loved dearly.  Officer Arenivaz Valdez is greatly missed by those who loved, knew, and worked with him.

I wanted to make you aware of a gofundme account that has been set up to assist with funeral expenses and the future of Officer Valdez's children. You can find the information  here:  https://gofund.me/ec552ed8

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need any additional information.
