Marshal Sims was shot and killed by the son of a man he was arresting on a warrant.

Marshal Sims was walking to town with his six year-old son when he came across a father and son he had warrants for. As Marshal Sims attempted to arrest them, the son leveled a rifle at him and fired, striking him in the neck. As Marshal Sims fell, he got off a shot, hitting the shooter in the stomach. Marshal Sims died almost immediately and the shooter died five days later.

Marshal Sims was survived by his wife, son, and daughter.
