It is with a heavy heart we share the passing of retired Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) Emergency Operations Chief Deputy Gary M. Lockhart. Chief Lockhart passed away on Thursday, September 24, 2020, after a sudden illness, at the age of 69.
Chief Lockhart retired in 2008 after 33 years of dedicated service to the LACoFD and residents of Los Angeles County. He began his career with the fire service on May 1, 1975, rising through the ranks from firefighter to Chief Deputy of Emergency Operations.
Chief Lockhart’s passion for the fire service began as a young boy when he watched his father, Darryl Lockhart, promote and retire at the rank of battalion chief from the LACoFD.
Chief Lockhart’s remarkable career in the fire service was impressive and all who knew him remember his exemplary leadership, commitment, and caring service to others before self. He is a mentor and friend to many.
Just as impressive as his career, Chief Lockhart lived an extraordinary personal life, filled with purpose, love, and family. Chief Lockhart is survived by his beautiful and caring wife Anita, their daughters Andrea and Sarah, their son Ryan, and their grandchildren. Please keep all of them in your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you, Chief Lockhart, for your dedicated and gracious service and for gifting all who knew you with your loyalty and kindness.
You will never be forgotten
