Memorial Shirt Honoring Deputy Commander Pat Carothers

This “jersey” style dry-fit shirt was created to honor the life and ultimate sacrifice of Deputy Commander Pat Carothers, who was killed in the line of duty on November 18th, 2016, while leading a team of Deputy US Marshals on an arrest warrant in Long County, Georgia. 

The story behind the design 

The following is an excerpt from Pat’s son, Paul Carothers’ speech, during the Memorial Service:

“I always loved wearing Carothers on my back, on the jersey I wore, whether it was football, baseball, soccer, volleyball… because I was proud to represent my family. But especially my dad. He always told us that we wore his name, and we wore it with pride. Before today, I didn’t realize the quantity of people that dad influenced. But when I look at all of you, people he knows and people he might not, I see an ocean of different jerseys, all wearing Carothers on their backs… proudly.  You all honor my father today, and my family.” 

All proceeds go to the US Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund. The mission of the Fund is to provide immediate financial support to the family of our fallen deputies and to offer scholarship opportunities to their children. Within 48 hours of Pat’s death, a representative of the Fund met with his widow Terry, providing significant and immediate financial support for her and their five children. This was only possible due to the hard work and fundraising efforts of deputies and supporters throughout the country.
