San Bernardino County sheriff’s Deputy Larry Falce — who died from a punch following a minor traffic crash in San Bernardino – was remembered at his memorial service Tuesday not only for his love of animals, but also for his flannel shirts.

The 30-minute ceremony at Immanuel Baptist Church in Highland included several speakers.
