Engaged active-duty Plymouth County Sheriff officer with child on the way dies, remembered as kind, caring man



Three Massachusetts officers have died recently, one of which is closer to home.

According to Massachusetts State Police, 25-year-old Officer John Santos of The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department, would have been a member of the Massachusetts State Police 88th Recruit Training Troop.

On Wednesday, December 28, 2022, Officer Santos, who is from the South Coast, passed away at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston after succumbing to a Brain Aneurysm. He was also a member of the United States Air Force, reaching the rank of Staff Sergeant, and served overseas in 2019.

A friend of Santos, who created a GoFundMe fundraiser to benefit his family that has raised over $47,000 as of this writing, stated that he was a Corrections Officer for 5 years and was a great man.

“For those of you who had the amazing opportunity to know John knew he was an absolute blessing to have around. His kind, caring, warming personality, along with his infectious smile would always brighten anyone’s day. John was a family man who would always speak highly of his girlfriend Hannah and how much he loved her, as well as how excited they were to be “soon to be parents.” John was a selfless person who always put others before himself… He was a great friend and loved by many… Unfortunately, John unexpectedly had succumbed to a medical emergency while working out in the gym.”

MSP stated that Santos was also engaged to be married.
