MOSES LAKE, Wash. - Gov. Chris Gregoire headed to the memorial service for a Grant County sheriff's deputy saying this has been one of the toughest two months for law enforcement officers in the history of Washington.
     
With Monday's service for Deputy John Bernard at Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake, the public remembers the seventh officer to die on duty since the end of October. They include a Seattle police officer, four Lakewood officers and a Pierce County deputy who were shot to death.
     
Bernard was killed in a Jan. 3 crash south of Ephrata.

(January 4, 2009)

A Washington State Patrol major accident investigation team is trying to determine how a Grant County sheriff's deputy on routine patrol was killed in a one-car rollover
crash.

Sheriff Frank T. DeTrolio says 52-year-old John Bernard was on a routine patrol when his car left the roadway and rolled over at 7:20 p.m. Sunday night, nine miles south of Ephrata.
     
Undersheriff John Turley says the road was wet, but there was no snow or ice.
     
Bernard was wearing a seat belt, and was not on his way to an emergency, but had just cleared another call.
     
The 52-year-old Moses Lake man was a four-year veteran of the sheriff's office.

Bernard leaves a wife and two sons. One, Brandon Bernard, is also a Grant County sheriff's deputy.

DeTrolio praised the fallen deputy and said he was "a tireless public servant."
