Walk Against Drugs - Keynote Speaker

Deputy Aron Grumbles

Deputy Aron Grumbles is a 12-year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, longtime animal enthusiast and amputee. He is an inspiration to his family, friends, co-workers and everyone who’s been fortunate to cross his path. 

Since 2002, Deputy Grumbles has been sharing his passion for reptiles and educating others through programs, events and special presentations. Today, he and his family have more than 40 reptiles they enjoy sharing with youth groups, schools, churches and others. It keeps them busy and gives their family a unique way to serve others. 

Deputy Grumbles’ life of service with the Sheriff’s Department began in 2007 and has included many specialized assignments such as gang intelligence, jail training, emergency response, Tactical Officer and patrol for two South County cities including his current assignment in Mission Viejo where he will soon become a School Resource Officer. 

He has never let the day he became an amputee on September 10, 2015 define him. He was struck on his personal motorcycle by a distracted driver resulting in the loss of his left leg below the knee. 

“I have turned this event into a blessing, however, as I get to help those around me cope with life's difficulties,” he said.  “By helping inspire others helps me heal. Also, what an incredible opportunity as a father that I get to show my two boys that there are no excuses in life. I am known to tell people faith, family and friends will get you through no matter what!"
