Thomas Joseph Morash

Officer Thomas Morash was killed when his motorcycle struck a vehicle when he was responding to a call of a minor traffic accident.

As he was driving south on Dixie Highway, between Monroe Drive and Kenilworth Boulevard, a woman driving a Honda Civic turned into Officer Morash's path. The impact catapulted Officer Morash from the seat of his 2003 Harley-Davidson Road King onto the pavement. Officer Morash was transported to St. Mary's Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The driver of the Honda was arrested and charged with driving without a valid driver license causing a death, and violating the right of way. She was later sentenced to seven-years probation but was re-sentenced to seven years in prison after violating her probation.

Officer Morash had served with the West Palm Beach Police Department for 12 years and had previously served with the Fort Pierce Police Department. He is survived by his wife, daughter, parents, three brothers, and three sisters.

How bittersweet it was to celebrate your daughters wedding last Saturday. I could feel your presence as I was sitting in the bright sunshine in that big field with all your family you left behind. Tatyana looked beautiful as well as Andrea. All your police family traveled up to Georgia to represent you and be there for her on her special day. You would of been so proud to see all the love they have for her and all the kind words they spoke about you. Its just another reminder of the great person you were and how much your missed. Keep shining on us. Luv you my brother.........xxo
