Deputy Clifford Dicker was shot and killed by a juvenile suspect he was serving papers on.

As Deputy Dicker entered the residence the 15-year-old suspect shot him in the face with a .22 caliber rifle, wounding him. The suspect then took Deputy Dicker's service weapon and shot him in the head a second time, killing him.

The suspect, a 15 year old male, was arrested a short time later, and tried as an adult. He pled No Contest, and was sentenced to 42 years in prison.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you terribly. Today marks 21 years that we lost you and the pain is no less today that it was on the first day. Words can't express how I feel, nothing can, just know that I still cry, sometimes happy tears, when remembering you, and sometimes sad tears thinking of all the new family members that never got the chance to meet you but knowing how much you would have loved each and every one of them. Love you so much!

Today I took a walk down the paths of long ago
I stirred the memories, sad and sweet
Just wanted you to know
You may be gone but we won't forget
We'll only love you more
Until at last we walk again
Along the golden shore.
