Remembering a Fallen Deputy a Decade Later

Posted: Updated:

Clare County Deputy, Kevin Sherwood, died doing his job 10 years ago today.

Many in Clare County will never forget what happened on October 9, 2003, especially on this day.

10 years later, the Clare County Sheriff's  Department remembered Deputy Kevin Sherwood by hosting a memorial ceremony.

Deputy Kevin Sherwood died after colliding with another car head-on. He was looking for a car that was reported as a drunk driver. It turned out to be an elderly man who was disoriented and went the wrong way on the highway, crashing into Sherwood.

9&10's Katie Boomgaard was at the memorial service today and talked with Kevin Sherwood's family about what this day means to them.
