KENT HINTERGARDT MEMORIAL PARK
31465 Via Cordoba, CA 92591 - Map

Description: The Kent Hintergardt memorial park was created as a special tribute to Riverside County Sheriff Kent Hintergardt who was shot and killed in the line of duty while answering a domestic dispute call on May 9, 1993.

While working patrol at the Southwest Station, he was called to a disturbance call between a boyfriend and girlfriend. Unknown to Deputy Hintergardt, the girlfriend had already been killed inside the apartment. Deputy Hintergardt made contact with the boyfriend in the parking lot. An altercation ensued, and Deputy Hintergardt was shot.

Hintergardt was born on December 14, 1959 and was 33 years old when he was killed. He was survived by his pregnant wife, Linda, who works as a nurse, and their daughter Marissa. Linda Hintergardt said her husband was a sportsman and athlete. He loved boating and water and snow skiing. He ran and kept in good physical shape. The family enjoyed spending weekends at their mountain cabin.

Without fail, Sheriff's Deputy Kent Hintergardt could play gently with his 16-month-old daughter Marissa, whenever he got home from work, recalled his good friend, Deputy Kevin Koehler. But early Sunday morning, May 9, 1993, Hintergardt's wife, Linda, awoke to hear her daughter joyously giggling for no apparent reason.

A trust fund has been set up for Hintergardt's widow and children. Please send contributions to: Linda Hintergardt, North County Bank, 27425 Ynez Road, Temecula, CA 92593.

Dedicated: Jul. 24, 1994

Location: The park is located 0.5 from Pechanga parkway, 1.5 miles from hwy 79 S and 2.1 miles from I-15. The park is also near the Kent Hintergardt park and Pala Community Park
