Family of Jose Vargas, Legendary OC Police Officer, Ask for Letters for Their Aging Dad to Lift His Spirits
Now, it's time for those of us who remember him to give back.
Vargas has retired from public life in the past couple of years, as he's suffering from the ravages of Parkinson's. His mind is still sharp as ever, but his ability to tell stories of his career has diminished. And although his family has lovingly stayed by their father's side, it's still a lonely life fighting Parkinson's. As a result, the Vargas family is asking that those who remember Officer Jose send letters to their papi thanking him for his long career of advocacy and good-cop living.
Those interested can send their letters to:
c/o Jose Vargas
P.O. Box 4165
Garden Grove, Ca 92840
