Auxiliary Officer Santini succumbed to injuries sustained five days earlier during an accident while on marine patrol. He was attempting to tow a boat that had run aground. The boat's tow rope broke so they hooked it up to winch. The winch line also broke and struck Auxiliary Officer Santini in the head, knocking him into the water. He was pulled from the water and taken to a local hospital where he died five days later.

Auxiliary Officer Santini had served with the agency for 10 years. He was survived by his wife and two children.

My name is Anita Santini, I had not seen these posts until today. Thank you all so much for the kind words. I am his only living daughter at 67. He died 3 days after my 12th birthday, I remember it well and think of him every day. He was my father and my best friend and when it’s my time I hope to see you. A very big piece of me died with you and nothing was ever the same again. I love you and miss you so much. You were a wonderful father and a good man. Anita
