Monday was a somber day for family and friends of murdered Red Bluff police officer David Mobilio.
A small group met privately at the Glenn Oaks Memorial Park in Chico to honor and remember him on the 10th anniversary of his death.
Mobilio was 31-years-old when he was gunned down while gassing up his patrol car.
Red Bluff Police Chief Paul Nanfito remembers, "There was a lot of emotion and fear and sadness during that time."
Emotions and sadness ran high during the memorial at his his graveside, where fellow officers vowed Mobilio will never be forgotten.
" The Red Bluff Police Department has a duty and a responsibility to make sure that happens, to be part of that process, and quite frankly, we need to recognize the dangers that police officers face," said Nanfito.
Dangers made evident by Andrew Mickel... Mobilio's killer. He remains in San Quentin on death row.
Tehama County District Attorney Gregg Cohen prosecuted the case, " It is 10 years later, and we're still awaiting execution. For me, personally, my point of view of justice, justice will not be served until he is put to death."
While many await their justice, others carry on with the memories of a man they say made this world a little bit better.
Chief Nanfito said, " He was a big teddy bear, he had a great sense of humor, he was a practical jokester, played many jokes on us at the department."
Officer David Mobilio is survived by his wife and now-eleven year old son.
