Arizona has suffered the loss of a great man and a fine Sheriff. Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever died last night after rolling his vehicle on a U. S. Forest Service road. Dever was known for his tough stance on combating illegal immigration and for treating people with respect. He will be missed.
Larry Dever, the four-term Republican sheriff of Cochise County, has died in a one-vehicle crash near the northern Arizona town of Williams. He was 60.
Dever's death was confirmed early Wednesday by the sheriff's department.
