The community will pay honor to a fallen hero today. Funeral services will begin at 11am for Miller County Deputy Casey Shoemate. The services will be held at the Church at Osage Hills on Osage Beach Parkway. An overflow crowd is expected to pay their respects.
That’s Sarah Slone from the COPS organization – Concerns of Police Survivors. They’ve been helping with the arrangements along with helping the family in their time of need. In the meantime, if you’d like to make a donation, Central Bank of Lake of the Ozarks has established an account for contributions under the title “Casey Shoemate Memorial Fund.” Shoemate was killed in a head-on collision while responding to an emergency call. He was 26 years old.
