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.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
