Trooper Robert Lamay, A Washington State Trooper is said to have died of COVID after resigning over vaccine mandates.
Robert LaMay went viral after being fired for refusing to get vaccinated and telling the governor to “kiss his a**”.
LaMay began his career in 1999 and has since worked across the state. He chose not to be vaccinated and instead retired in October with a wonderful farewell.
“We don’t do vaccines,” he told Fox News in an interview last year after he quit, referring to himself and his family. “We don’t do flu shots or any of that stuff.”
LaMay told Fox that he obtained a religious vaccine exemption, but that he decided that required changes in his job due to his unvaccinated status were unacceptable.
“I am deeply saddened over the news that our former friend and colleague Trooper Robert LaMay has passed away.”. Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste said of LaMay in a statement Friday.
“This agency’s prayers and remembrances are with his family and loved ones. Rob served honorably for over two decades and we were disappointed to see him leave the agency this past October. His service to this state and agency will be long remembered and appreciated.”
