Deputy Sheriff Johnny Tunches died as the result of complications after contracting COVID-19 while on duty.

He had served with the Harris County Sheriff's Office for 29 years and was assigned to District 2. He is survived by his wife and three daughters.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
