The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office is honoring the legacy of one of its own.
Thursday marked one year since the passing of HCSO Deputy Terry Vick, who died in a crash after getting off work on April 22, 2021.
"It's been one year," the sheriff's office said Thursday. "Terry Vick you are missed but we know you are watching over us. #328."
Deputy Vick was serving his 19th year as an officer at the time of his death. He also served as a school resource officer at Hanson Elementary School.
Also serving as a United States Marine and eventually a sheriff's deputy in both Muhlenberg and Hopkins counties, Vick received numerous awards for his efforts.
"He also went on to receive a medal of honor from the Kentucky Sheriff's Association back in 2012. Which is the highest honor that the Sheriff's Association bestows upon an individual," remarked Muhlenberg County-Judge Executive Curtis McGehee
Supportive, generous, and loving are just a few of the words used by the community to describe Deputy Vick following his passing.
