Deputy Sheriff Greg Gariepy was killed in an automobile accident on Old Woman Springs Road while responding to assist another deputy at approximately approximately 5:00 am.

He lost control of his vehicle and went off the roadway, overturned, and was ejected from the vehicle. The deputy he was responding to assist arrived at the scene and immediately began CPR as rescue crews responded. He was transported to Hi-Desert Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Deputy Gariepy was a US Marine Corps veteran and had served with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department for three years. He is survived by his wife, son, and two daughters.

On February 29, 2008, a stretch of Highway 247 was dedicated as the Greg A. Gariepy Memorial Highway.

I was in Gariepy's Platoon 2000 class at Parris Island. He was by far a tough as nails Drill Instructor and I certainly got no slack which I appreciated despite both his and the seniors wondering how I would far in the fleet marines. I know it's a bit belated but despite my rough start in boot camp I credit Gariepy for training me to later make it where I made it. Namely Recon training, Machine Gunner in a CAAT team, and later a meritorious promotion to Corporal. You have to think on your feet and have a thick skin which this drill instructor was good at making. I had always wondered what came of him and I didn't know until I did the search today.
I will pray for his family.
