Slain deputy's family speaks out about his legacy
LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - The family of slain L.A. Sheriff's deputy Joseph Solano is speaking out about his legacy -- speaking from the heart about a man gone far too soon.
Solano, a 13-year-veteran of the force, died after getting shot in the head -- a victim of a random attack at a Jack in the Box in Alhambra on June 10.

His accused killer is behind bars awaiting trial.
"You took everything from me you took everything from. For no reason. You had no reason," said Jessica Jimenez, Solano's step-daughter.
"He would always say 'where we going this weekend?' and I told him we still had restaurants to go to," said Juliana Loza, Solano's longtime girlfriend. "We did everything together."
As Solano's family prepares to bury him on Monday, friends have started a GoFundMe account to help the family with so many unexpected expenses.
The family says they are grateful for the huge outpour of support.
