Arturo Villegas

Police Officer Art Villegas died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in a presumed exposure while on duty.

Officer Villegas had served with the Alamo Police Department for two years. He had previously served with the Lyons Police Department and Oak Park Police Department for 19 years. He is survived by his six children, sister, and three brothers.

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.
