Sheriff Coursey was shot and killed while he and the Undersheriff made a high risk traffic stop of a vehicle that was believed to have been used in a bank robbery in another county. The suspects opened fire on the two officers, killing Sheriff Coursey. The two suspects, a man and woman, remained at large for several months until their bodies were found in a sleeping bag underneath a tree. Both had committed suicide with the same weapon used to murder Sheriff Coursey.

Sheriff Coursey is survived by his wife, two sons, and daughter.

Hello Roger,

Toby, Delta Academy, Fall 1991.
You were my mentor, my hero, my teacher. You had a great sense of humor. You were fast, smart and handsome. You were a good family man. I think about you a lot. I hope that wherever you are, you are well and doing good work. We could use you and a lot of people like you back here in Colorado and evil knows no holiday. A big hug to you old friend. Until we meet again.
