Edward John Marcurella, Jr.

Sergeant Edward Marcurella died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during a presumed exposure while on duty.

Sergeant Marcurella was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Colleton County Sheriff's Office for 11 years and had a total of 35 years of law enforcement service. He is survived by his wife, seven children, parents, and four siblings.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
