DELTA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Sergeant Rdean Young, who served Delta County for the last 19 years, passed away on Thursday, according to the Delta Police Department.
The cause of his death is unknown.
The Delta Police Department issued a statement saying, "Sgt. Young spent the past nineteen years selflessly serving our community and giving his very best to keep us all safe. He was often seen walking our sidewalks and patrolling our streets. However, he spent a great deal of his time in our schools, and loved helping the elementary kids out of their parent’s cars in the morning, and sending them off to class with a smile and a fist bump. To us, Rdean was a mentor, teacher, husband, father, brother and a friend. Rest in peace brother, you will be greatly missed."
