NEWPORT, Ark. – “We lost not only a partner and a brother, but just a wonderful man who was dedicated to serving.”
People gather tonight to remember Lt. Patrick Weatherford who was killed in the line of duty one year ago.
A memorial service took place today in Newport at the Veteran’s Memorial to commemorate his death.
“He meant a lot to this community. He was the type of individual who would give you the shirt off his back. It didn’t matter if you knew him or not. If you needed help, he was always there to help,” says Sheriff David Lucas.
The crowd released black and blue balloons in honor of his memory.
