Passing of Park Ranger Mark Manlapaz
It is with great sadness that the City of Claremont announces the passing of Senior Park Ranger Mark Manlapaz. Mark was a Claremont Park Ranger for three years and a sixteen year veteran of the Cal Poly Pomona Campus Security team. Mark was tragically assaulted and killed while working his shift as a Public Safety Specialist at Cal Poly Pomona on Friday, June 29, 2018.
Mark was a friendly, helpful, and dedicated figure in the Claremont Wilderness Park and on the campus of Cal Poly Pomona. He will be greatly missed by his family, co-workers, and the community.
We extend our sincerest sympathy to his family.
The City of Claremont and Cal Poly Pomona have established a GoFundMe page to support the Manlapaz family. If you are interested in donating, you can access the page via the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/support-for-manlapaz-family.
