A memorial service for Rob Bryn, the public information officer for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriffs Office and a dedicated Republican activist, will be Saturday morning in San Luis Obispo.
The service will be a full law enforcement funeral, including a vehicle processional, an honor guard, bagpipes and likely a 21-gun salute, said sheriffs Cmdr. Aaron Nix.
It befits his position as a former peace officer, he said.
The service will start at 10 a.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 3396 Johnson Ave. A graveside interment will follow at San Luis Cemetery, and then a reception for family and friends will be held.
Deputies found Bryn, 61, unresponsive at his Paso Robles home Thursday morning, having been dispatched there after Bryn did not show up for work.
Deputy coroners believe Bryn died of natural causes; an autopsy will be conducted this week.
Bryn moved to San Luis Obispo County in the mid-1980s to take a job at the Morro Bay Police Department. He later worked for the San Luis Obispo Police Department and then the Sheriffs Office.
He is survived by his mother, Vernita; his wife, Beverly; and his daughters, Jennifer Kathleen King (Bryan) and Deanna Michelle Rowland (Ryan).
Donations, in lieu of flowers, should be sent to the Alpha Academy, Woods Humane Society or the Estrella Warbirds Museum.
