Chris Schaub - Law Enforcement - Florida

Deputy Sheriff Chris Schaub, age 47, died in the line of duty on September 26, 2012, in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Chris was a member of the Broward County Sheriff's Office. He had 22 years of service.

At about 2:30 p.m., Chris's motorcycle collided head-on with a car at a busy intersection in Pompano Beach.  The female driver of the automobile received only minor injuries. 

Chris was flown to Broward Health Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries approximately four hours later.

Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray for Chris
Sheriff's Office officials stated that Chris is remembered as a fighter. His heart gave out six times, and he was brought back to life; He kept struggling and struggling until the point where he couldn't struggle anymore.

Chris belonged to a fraternity of motorcycle officers - a group who showed up in force outside the hospital, some from police agencies in Palm Beach County, awaiting word on Chris's condition. 

Chris will be greatly missed by his comrades. 

Chris is survived by many loving friends and relatives, including his daughter and his son, who also serves as a deputy with the Sheriff's office.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. 

Let us pray that Chris Schaub is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
