An old veteran from the Cook County sheriff’s office died Sunday because of complications due to the corona virus on Sunday.
Sheriff Deputy Richard O’Brien most recently worked with the Skokie Civil Process Unit, the Cook County sheriff’s office said in a statement. He is a 25-year veteran in the department.
He is remembered as someone who was “very motivated” and “tried harder,” the statement said. O’Brien has handled health problems before, including a diagnosis of leukemia in January.
“Our hearts are broken by the loss of Deputy O’Brien, and we send our deepest condolences to his wife, Cindi, their three children and all those they love,” said the statement, “Deputy O’Brien is devoted to the family and loves to spend time quality with them. He lived his life with a positive attitude, even during the most difficult times. “
The O’Briens arrange a GoFundMe page for support.
