Deputy William Mast to be remembered

by Staff Reports

A memo from Watauga County Manager Deron Geouque:

"Friday, July 26, 2013, will be the one year anniversary of the tragic loss of Deputy Sheriff William Ronald Mast, Jr. Deputy Mast gave the ultimate sacrifice in the protection and service of his community.

The Watauga County Commissioners on July 16, 2013 passed a resolution honoring his memory. The resolution requests all flags to be flown at half-staff on July 26, 2013.

In addition, at approximately 10 a.m. on that day, citizens, nonprofits, governments, and businesses are encouraged to join the Commissioners in the celebration of the life of William Ronald Mast, Jr. by observing a moment of remembrance to last for one minute.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mast family who has given so much to our County."
