Officer Passer was killed when his police motorcycle was struck by a traffic violator he was attempting to stop. He had pulled alongside the violator's vehicle to signal the driver to pull over. The driver, apparently not seeing him, turned left and struck him. Officer Passer was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Officer Passer had been with the agency for two years and was survived by his wife, two daughters, and parents.
