Our fallen Hero Flagler County Sheriff's Office Detention Deputy Sheriff Paul Luciano, who died-in-the-line-of duty, had been hospitalized while battling COVID-19, which he likely contracted while serving in the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. In a recent hospital call with Sheriff Rick Staly, Paul said he would "keep fighting but it was in God’s hands.” Sadly, after weeks of fighting a long and hard battle Paul lost his fight with Covid-19 and God called him home to now serve with him.
Deputy Luciano started his career in 1996 with the Bunnell, FL Police Department but was called to serve in the correctional field and joined the Volusia County Department of Corrections where he retired in 2017 as a Lieutenant. His compassion for helping others caused him to return to the correctional field and in November 2019 he joined the Flagler County Sheriff's Office as a Detention Deputy Sheriff. He quickly became a mentor to younger Deputy Sheriff's and inmates and was known as "Looch."
"Looch" was a strong and faithful Christian and we know he is serving alongside God watching over his community and family. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers along with his brothers and sisters at FCSO as we mourn his loss, which devastates us all. Deputy Luciano is survived by his wife of 43-years, Carrie, his father, a Korean War veteran, two son's and a daughter.
To honor Deputy Luciano and support his family all funds raised will go to the family to cover their unexpected costs resulting from the loss of his income and his unexpected passing.
100% of the funds raised will go to cover costs and expenses to honor Deputy Luciano.
