Customs and Border Protection Officer Richard G. McCoy passed away on May 3, 2020.   The circumstances of his passing were reviewed by an executive panel and the CBP Commissioner who agreed that this death occurred in the line of duty.  Officer  McCoy will be remembered for his diligent service to the nation and for his bravery in the face of danger.

BPO McCoy had worked in a number of different ports across the country and preclearance.  Since 2018, he had been assigned to the Fort Lauderdale/Port Everglades Port of Entry in Florida. He started his career with CBP, formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service, on July 6, 1997, following 10 years in the U.S. Navy, ultimately having served his country for nearly 33 years. 

He is survived by his young daughter, his wife, and his parents.
