MENTOR, Ohio — He may have hung up his badge a few years ago, but his contributions to the community will be remembered forever.

We’re talking about Deuce, a retired police K-9 with the Mentor Police Department.  He passed away on Friday.  Here’s how MPD described him:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gunton family after the passing of MPD K9 Deuce. Deuce and Officer Ron Gunton retired a few years ago. Deuce lived a long happy (spoiled) life with the Gunton family following his retirement.

Thank you for your service Deuce!”

Rest in peace, Deuce.
