On Friday, Nov. 14, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office dedicated a memorial for all emergency service workers who have died in the line of duty. That day was also the two-year anniversary of the death of Deputy Sheriff Anthony Rakes. Regina Ewing, Rakes’ sister, was pleased with the event.
“It’s amazing how people still come out in memory of him,” she said.
Rakes’ other sister, Anita Elder, added, “He is gone, but he is not going to be forgotten.”
