Mark Vasquez joined the Manhattan Beach Police Department in 2005 and worked in patrol until he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, in 2007. His fellow officers nicknamed him “Superman” and held many fundraisers and events in support of their hero. However, the department lost its "Superman" on May 15, 2011, which is also National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day. Since that time, Officer Vasquez' family, friends, and colleagues have gathered each May to honor and remember his larger-than-life personality and his love of life.
