Officer Sife Perdue was killed in a motorcycle crash while escorting a funeral procession.

He had stopped traffic at an intersection, and after the last vehicle in the procession passed, he began to pass the procession en route to the next intersection. As he began to pull away, he struck the back of a truck that had stopped for the procession. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Officer Perdue was a U.S. Army Vietnam War veteran and had served with the Columbus Police Department for nine years. He was survived by his wife, daughter, son, parents, three half brothers, sister, and grandchild.

Officer Perdue,
Even though it’s been over 30 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and remembered. Ci would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army-especially during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
