Sgt. Chris Ward
Sgt. Chris Ward and K-9 Deputy Logan Fox responded to a welfare check on 4/28/2021. What they didn't know, was what was waiting on them inside. Deputies were ambushed inside the home by a suspect that had already killed his mother and step-father. Both officers were killed in the line of duty that day. Chris Ward had started his law enforcement career working at Beech Mountain Police Dept and then accepted a position at WCSO in 2018. Chris leaves behind two daughters and his wife of 20 years. Logan Fox started his law enforcement career at Ashe County Sheriffs Office in 2018 and had been at WCSO for almost 2 years. Logan leaves behind his K-9 companion, Raven, his father, sister, and high school sweet heart of 7 years. We will continue to honor these officers and all Law Enforcement always.
Chris and Logan's Families were the recipients of our 2021 8th Annual 5K Race
