Harold McKimmie served as Sheriff for Tuscarawas County and he passed away Christmas day at 93 years old.

The retired law enforcement official had a career spanning 46 years between the State Highway Patrol, from 1967 until 1982, and then the Sheriff’s Office, from 1985 to 2000.

Current Sheriff, Orvis Campbell, issued a message on Facebook that noted how McKimmie was a mentor as Campbell was hired by him and about how he spoke at Campbell’s swearing-in ceremony.

Fraternal Order of Police Tuscora Lodge #4 noted their deepest sympathy to the McKimmie family.
