Fallen Heroes Details



In Memory Of
Lawrence Breceda
Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department, CA
End of watch: 1986-07-31
Aircraft: unknown
Reserve Deputy Sheriff Lawrence Eugene Breceda, 29, of Montague and Deputy Sheriff Dale Steven Rossetto, 30, of Yreka were, at the time of the crash, on a marijuana-spotting mission in conjunction with the state's Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP) program.

Also killed was Redding pilot Noah Stinnett, 46.

The deputies' deaths marked the first fatalities in the Sheriff's Department in more than 30 years, and marked the first time officers have been killed during the four-year history of the CAMP program.

Siskiyou County sheriff's deputy Gary Peery said this morning that several at the ceremony had attended the regional police academy in Oroville with Breceda and Rossetto.

In a eulogy by Peery and fellow deputy Larry Schaller, Breceda and Rossetto were described as "heroes" who died while working to better their community. The crowd stood in applause as Schaller told the victims' families the deputies had not "died in vain."

Thoughts and Memories of Lawrence Breceda

Larry was my cousin. He had a smile that would melt anyone's heart. He loved life. He left two beautiful baby boys behind who would grow up to never know how much their daddy loved them. I was at his father's house in Montague when they discovered the crash site and will never forget the look in his father's eyes (Gene Breceda) when Larry's death was confirmed. As a parent, I know the hardest thing you would ever want to hear is that your child is dead. My heart still grieves for the terrible loss of our beloved Larry. His father has since gone to meet him and I know they are together waiting for the rest of us.

It's been a while since those begining days of eraticating Marijuana. Larry and Dale were both working in the Jail and a few of us did the field work. Larry and Dale wanted to do it all. They worked the jail and every chance they would be out locating grows. Larry grew up in Shasta Valley and we started pretty close to the same time. We went to High school together, but we didn't always see eye to eye. 5 years out of School and I guess we changed ( Grew up ). Larry was always a hard worker. He was fair and balanced. He left way too soon. Love ya Brother.
