Hero Down: Broward Co. Deputy Roberto Aspuru Killed In Motorcycle Crash

Holly Matkin

Broward Sheriff's Office Deputy Roberto Aspuru served his department for nearly 21 years.

Boca Raton, FL – Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) Deputy Roberto Aspuru died on Tuesday night following a single-vehicle motorcycle crash.

The fatal off-duty collision occurred on South Federal Highway at approximately 9:44 p.m., the Miami Herald reported.

Deputy Aspuru, 54, was rushed to Delray Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.

The exact cause of the fatal collision remains under investigation.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of another member of our BSO family,” the BSO said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

Deputy Aspuru served in the U.S. Marine Corps prior to joining the BSO in 1999.

He initially worked in the BSO’s Department of Detention, and crossed over to the Department of Law Enforcement in 2001.

Deputy Aspuru was quickly approaching his 21st anniversary with the department, the sheriff’s office noted.

“Throughout his career, he received numerous commendations and was known for his attentiveness and calm demeanor,” Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony said in a message to his staff, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Deputy Aspuru leaves behind his wife, parents and siblings, the City of Tamarac tweeted on Thursday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputy Roberto Aspuru, both blood and blue. Thank you for your service.

Rest easy, hero. We’ll hold the line from here.

Your comment regarding his tattoos is abnoxious. He put his life on the line daily to serve others. This man was one of the kindest I have been priveledged to call a friend. Take your hate comments elsewhere.

I won’t even require a pointless, ignorant qualifier: YOU should be given the death penalty. Period.

The idiot who posted that comment is a cop hating troll who brags about sucker punching people and spitting on the food of people he serves at McDonald's. He is a sad excuse for a human being.

In his case you could do that with a ballpoint pen in about 10 seconds.

Your comments are disrespectful as fuck. I’m his first cousin and u don’t disrespect a life like that. If they’ve posted this up in honor of him and u don’t like it, go somewhere else. Where is human decency

first off, no one in my family rides motorcycles. Second off, everyone on this site that dies was related to someone else; go defend them as well. I'm supposed to hold my tongue because you know him personally? Please.

Karma's a bitch, Cam-el-toe. Remember that blacks have superhuman power and are immune to the coronavirus comment? How did that work out for you?

It doesn't matter that you don't know the officer or that no one in your family rides a motorcycle. A decent person wouldn't make nasty comments about a person killed in an accident. He wasn't a person engaged in a criminal act when he died so your obnoxious remarks are uncalled for. Here's hoping karma finds its way to you in the near future.

How many times have I said I don't believe in fairy tales? If praying helped, you and your wife would have been struck by a car a while ago.

In order for him to do humanity a favor, he would have to do a lot more than just go away........a lot more!!!! He loves himself far too much to do that.

You have got to be kidding me! Posting such a negative comment is disgraceful. Whoooo cares about his tattoos! He was a great cop, great family man. A tattoo.....you're just an asshole. Wonder what the comments would say about you if you died and your death actually made the Internet.....interesting thought....nobody knows you to post anything and you don't know that deputy, to post something like that. Look in the mirror before you judge.......yes, that deputy was very much loved in MY COUNTY. Asshole
