Community honors Meade County sheriff’s deputy who touched their lives

MEADE COUNTY, Ky. — The large crowd gathered at the Meade County Courthouse in honor of Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Hulsey showed just how loved he was by his community.

The vigil was illuminated by candlelight and the flag was flown at half-staff as the community celebrated his life. They shared personal stories, one after the other, of how he made a difference in their county.

"Me and my family were seconds away from losing our home and Chris opened his home to us,” Christiana Wilson said.

"I love to think that whenever you're feeling lost, you can just look up to the stars and Chris Hulsey would somehow give you guidance wherever you are,” Robert Schram said.
