The name of late Essex County Deputy Sheriff Anthony Pasquarello will be added Wednesday to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C.

Sheriff Kevin F. Coppinger and members of the department will join the Pasquarello family Wednesday, May 15 for the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service.

Pasquarello of Saugus died in the line of duty at age 37 on Dec. 9, 2021 from COVID-19. He was a 15-year veteran of the Essex County Sheriff’s Department and had been working in the department’s transportation unit at the time he contracted the virus. He was described as following the pillars of health, leading a healthy lifestyle, and his death was a shock to his family and the department. He left behind his parents, his fiancée, a 9-year-old autistic son as well as his siblings.

During the Memorial Service on, Pasquarello’s young son Vincent will be joined by Pasquarello’s mother Norine and Coppinger in laying a wreath at the monument. The Pasquarello family will also be in attendance at the Candlelight Vigil on the National Mall on Monday, May 13, at 8 p.m.
