Deputy Causey I know was a wonderful man, husband and father.

Deputy Causey cared deeply for his family, his community and how through his job he could serve and protect others. Through his love for his community and others safety he gave the ultimate sacrifice.

We are hoping his department, government entities and others step up to aid his family in the massive medical bills they left his wife and family with.
