Henry O. Richarde

Deputy Richarde was shot and killed by three brothers who had a grudge against the deputy. Deputy Richarde had accompanied an attorney to the brothers' home to discuss an upcoming legal case. As the two men left the home the brothers began to approach the buggy with weapons. Deputy Richarde fired at the brothers, who then opened fire. The attorney jumped from the buggy and was not injured, but Deputy Richarde was shot several times and killed.

Deputy Richarde had served with the sheriff's officer for several years. He was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.
