Deputy Brandy Winfield was a lifelong resident of Marion County in North Central Ohio - his great grandfather served with the Sheriff's Office, and his father and brother both served as officers with the Marion City Police Department.  Brandy started serving as a young teen in the Explorer Program with the Sheriff's Office and worked his way up through Dispatch, Corrections, and Patrol.  At 29 years old, he was living his dream of being a law enforcement officer - he had a beautiful wife Sara and two amazing young sons Landon and Tyler at home. Sara also served as a 911 Emergency Dispatcher.  That night Brandy stopped to help a disabled motorist and was executed by the man he stopped to help - followed by an intense manhunt in the city of Marion.  His wife Sara continues to assist survivor families with the National C.O.P.S. Organization, and his oldest son Landon, who was 3 when he was murdered, is studying law enforcement to serve his community following a family tradition of service.
