Deputy Sheriff Donny Gilreath died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Deputy Gilreath had served with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office for 15 years. He is survived by his wife, three children, and sisters.

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.
