Retired Seattle Police Officers Association

Last Ring

Take a moment to remember our friends and associates who have passed.

Larry Cotton #4425, retired Seattle police patrolman passed away on January 30, 2021 in Everett, WA.  Larry was hired in 1980 and retired after 25 years of service in 2005.  He spent his career working in the West and North Precincts and for a time was a member of the SWAT/ERT team.  Larry enjoyed playing in the Bacon Bowl and on the SPD soccer team.  Upon retirement Larry and his wife Candace moved to St. George, UT where they lived until returning to Washington state in 2012.  Candace says that Larry was very well known for never swearing and laughs when thinking not many officers can make that claim.  Larry and Candace were married for 43 years.  A private family service will be held in the distant future.
