Page County Sheriff Edward M. "Pap" Sedwick
EOW December 22, 2020

Sheriff Chad Cubbage wishes to express his sincere condolences in the loss of yet another member of our extended Sheriff’s Office Family. Former Page County Sheriff E.M. “Pap” Sedwick spent many years serving the citizens of Page County and devoting most of his life to public service. Many will remember “Pap” for his humble demeanor, friendly disposition, and great leadership as Sheriff. Sheriff Sedwick employed many of the law enforcement officers who are still employed in Page County and elsewhere, giving their law enforcement careers a jumpstart. “Pap” was not only well known in the law enforcement community, but also the farming community. We will remember him for his dedication, and his service to our county, and to our profession. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.
