Officer Sife Perdue was killed in a motorcycle accident while escorting a funeral procession.

He had stopped traffic at an intersection and after the last vehicle in the procession passed he began to pass the procession en route to the next intersection. As he began to pull away he struck the back of a truck that had stopped for the procession. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Officer Perdue was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War. He had served with the Columbus Police Department and was survived by his wife, daughter, and son.

I met Sife at a summer camp in North Georgia we both attended in our early teens. I remember his amazing athletic talent during our tag football games, when he would score touchdown after touchdown, untouched, in dazzlingly fast bursts of speed. We both vied for the attention of a cute girl, and he won. I was actually glad, because he didn't like losing! For some reason I remembered him after all these decades and looked him up on Google and found this sad news. What an impressive life he lived, packed into almost 50 years. It's good to see him remembered here.
