The Trimble County community is grieving the loss of Sheriff Tim Coons.
Judge-Executive Jerry Powell tells us Sheriff Coons was diagnosed with cancer late last summer and succumbed to that battle this morning.
The Judge says this is a devastating loss to the community. He says Sheriff Coons had an open door policy and was always there to help his community.
The Judge-Executive expects to appoint a new sheriff once services for Sheriff Coons are completed.
No arrangements have yet been made.
Our thoughts and prayers to the Coons family and to the folks of Trimble County.
