MIAMI – Services were held Monday for a Miami Beach police officer who died after a medical emergency that has now been classified as a heart attack.

It happened Nov. 28 as Detective Larry Marrero, a 28-year veteran of the Miami Beach Police Department, was working at the police station.

He was rushed to Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he died. On Monday, the office of the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner said Marrero died of a heart attack.

His funeral began with a procession that left downtown Miami along Interstate 395 to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, 3716 Garden Ave. in Miami Beach where services were held.

Several fire boats performed a water salute as the procession went over the MacArthur Causeway.

At the time of his death, Marrero, 58, was working as a background investigator. He had previously worked as a marine patrol officer, a school resource officer, an auto theft investigator and homicide detective. He was also a 20-year member of the SWAT unit.

A GoFund me account has been set up to help his family.
