Terry Stonecipher Death, Obituary – We are saddened to inform you of the tragic passing of Chief Terry Stonecipher, of the Klawock Police Department, which occurred suddenly and unexpectedly early this morning. It is with a heavy heart that we share this news with you. He will be sorely missed by everyone. All of the city flags will be flown at half-staff today in remembrance of Chief Stonecipher and in recognition of the many years he spent serving our town.
Today, we pay tribute to the many years of service he provided to our community. We would like to take this opportunity, Chief Stonecipher, to thank you for the many years that you have spent serving the community of law enforcement officials. The man’s wife and their children are being remembered in prayer by our community as they go through this trying time. They are in our prayers and in our thoughts at this time. To say that we’re caught aback by the news that Chief of Police Terry Stonecipher had passed away on the same day that he had been to meet us is an understatement.
We found out the news. According to the things that we have observed, he was a really kind man, and whenever James and we had the opportunity to speak with him, we both found him to be extremely kind. We’re thankful that we had the chance to interact with him. From what we have seen, he was a truly decent man. This is based on my observations. We’re sorry for his family; we have been through a loss comparable to that one in the past, but whether you choose to believe it or not, the agony will eventually get easier to bear. We’re sorry for his family.
