Family, friends and community leaders honored the life of a fallen Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office sergeant on Monday. 

A portion of US 11W was dedicated to Sgt. Steve Hinkle, and Monday’s ceremony took place near the former “Grand Guitar” building at 1:30 p.m.

Sgt. Hinkle was killed in the line of duty back in February while responding to a welfare check call. He had served his community for more than 27 years.

Since Hinkle’s passing, the community has continued to remember his positive attitude and work ethic by holding several memorial events.
