For CO Joe William Heddy:

The corrections officer has the immense task of keeping order and keeping others safe in an environment almost totally among convicts, many who often show disrespect for authority in-general.

We regret that Joe was the victim of physical problems resulting in his demise apparently due to stress and strain while saving the life of one of his charges. He lived-up to his mission, performed as well as can be expected, and he stands a hero among his peers.

We proudly render CO Joe William Heddy, a dedicated and double-duty professional, a final salute.
