The Funeral of Deputy James Kirk

LANCASTER, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) The funeral of Sheriff’s Deputy James Kirk was held at the Second Baptist Church Monday afternoon.  Deputy Kirk was just 57-years-old when he collapsed at a training event last week.  He died shortly after at Springs Memorial Hospital from a medical condition.

Deputy James loved his job — he worked for Lancaster police for 25 years, and then for the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office since 2015.  But he particularly loved working with the youth.  Deputy James was a school resource officer and a Drug Abuse Resistance (D.A.R.E.) officer.

The Lancaster native graduated from Lancaster High School in 1978.  He leaved behind his wife, Traci, and their four children.
