Juan Gomez

End of Watch - August 14, 2021

Officer Juan Gomez

Juan M. Gomez began his career with the Pelham Police Department on April 23, 2010. He was a man of integrity, a professional police officer who cared for his community. He will forever be remembered as a true public servant.

Juan was a member of the Emergency Services Unit and the Bike Patrol Unit. He loved to talk with people and never hesitated to help someone in need.

Previously, Juan worked with the Albertville Police Department. He was also a decorated Army veteran. During his eight years in the military, he received many awards, including the Army Commendation Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal.

Juan died from complications of COVID-19. He was devout in his faith and shared his love for God with everyone he came in contact with. We find peace in some of his final words to his friends: "I trust in the Lord. He is a sovereign God. I will accept whatever comes my way because I know I'm okay, either way."
