Today we remember Sheriff Sidney Edge EOW 8-07-1948.
On this day Sheriff Edge suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after being involved in a violent struggle with an intoxicated subject.
The sheriff and a deputy were attempting to arrest the man for being drunk. The two were eventually able to subdue the man and take him to jail. A short time later Sheriff Edge fell ill and collapsed.
Sheriff Edge had served as the Kendall County sheriff for 12 years and had previously served as a Texas game warden. He was survived by his wife and three children.
Sheriff Edges legacy has continued to live on through the Kendall County Sheriff's Office and Community.
