A resolution to name the rest area off of Interstate 5 in Dunnigan in honor of slain Yolo County Sheriff’s Deputy Jose “Tony” Diaz was approved Monday by the Assembly Transportation Committee. Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, authored the resolution.

Diaz, 37, was fatally shot near the rest area on June 15, 2008, following a high-speed pursuit of a drunken driving suspect with a child in the vehicle. Marco Topete was convicted of Tony Diaz’s murder and sentenced to death in February 2012.

Diaz was raised in Dixon, attended the Yuba College Policy Academy and joined the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office in 2004. He was the father of three daughters, Angelica, Jessica and Alejandra, and his peers remember him as a gentle, hard-working man who was proud of his community and family.

“This is an awesome tribute to one of our fallen heroes,” said Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto. “Tony is in our thoughts daily.”

The main road leading to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office campus in Woodland was named Tony Diaz Drive in May 2012, with the various building addresses reflecting Diaz’s badge number, 140.

ACR 14 will next be heard in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
