Marshal Ray Ward was killed in an automobile accident on the Bingham Highway while returning to Salt Lake City from Bingham after serving several warrants.

It was determined that Marshal Ward's brakes had failed, contributing to his vehicle losing control and striking a telephone pole in West Jordan.

Marshal Ward was a U.S. Army veteran of WWI and served as the U.S. Marshal for the District of Utah. He was survived by his wife and four children and is buried in the Mount Olivet Cemetery in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Marshal Ward,
On today, the 87th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a LEO but when you served in the U.S. Army during WW I as well.
