Kenneth Herron Obituary, Death – With a heavy heart, the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office is announcing the loss of Former Chief Deputy Kenneth Herron. Herron served the department for many years. After a lengthy career with the organization, Kenneth Herron eventually decided to retire. His name was Kenny, and in 1979 he became a member of the Berryville Police Department, where he worked as a police officer.
His career in law enforcement began at that time. Kenny is a well-known figure in the community. In 1984, Kenny took the oath of office required to become a Deputy Sheriff. The sheriff of the time, Albert Nicodemus, presided over the ceremony and delivered the oath. In 1988, following Sheriff Dale Gardner’s successful election to the office of Sheriff, Kenny was promoted by Sheriff Gardner to the position of Chief Deputy Sheriff.
This promotion took place in the same year. Until Kenny Roper retired from his full-time job in 2006, Sheriff Anthony Roper directed him as the Chief Deputy, and Kenny Roper continued to serve in that capacity until that year. Kenny worked for the Sheriff’s Office again in 2006, this time as a part-time employee in the Court Security Division, after taking a break from the agency for a short period of time.
Kenny had never held a full-time position prior to the year 2016. After finishing his obligation in the military, he served his country in the armed forces prior to beginning his career in law enforcement. During this time, he was a member of the law enforcement community. Kenny will be remembered as a good-natured and sympathetic person who never met a friend or acquaintance that he didn’t get along with.
He exemplified everything that it meant to have a career in the public sector in the purest form possible. We will think fondly of Kenny on a daily basis, but his legacy will go on beyond his passing. As soon as the funeral arrangements have been arranged, we will make sure that everyone knows about it. Please remember to keep the Herron family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time. Thank you.
