Sife Perdue

Officer Sife Perdue was killed in a motorcycle accident 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 veteran of the Vietnam War. He had served with the Columbus Police Department for seven years and was survived by his wife, daughter, and son.

I met Sife in 1976 when he attended a course I was teaching. A finer man I never met. We became friends and spent time together. I was struck with his kindness and openness. I have never forgotten him. Reading these reflections I’m pleased that many others felt like me. God bless his memory and his family.
