Remembering Dannie Blick

The citizens of Logan County are remembering their former sheriff after he passed away.

Fifty-nine-year-old, Dannie Blick, is being remembered as a public servant who would do anything for the citizens of Logan County.

Logan County Sheriff, Wallace Whittaker, says it was a tough job replacing his friend and former boss when he retired three years ago.

Sheriff Whittaker says: "You could call him at any hour of the night; he'll be there, anytime during the day; he'll be there."

Sheriff Whittaker says Dannie loved life, his family, his church, and being a public servant.

He says: "Dannie was a hardworking sheriff. He believed in doing the job, getting the job done, and doing well at it."

Dannie started having 24 hour patrols when he became sheriff, something that was virtually unheard of in small departments at the time.

Sheriff Whittaker says: "In 1986 when he won the sheriff's election he did a 24 hour patrol around the clock which we still do at this time and age."

Whittaker says Dannie was devoted to his church and working with the youth.

He says words can't express everything Dannie did for the people of Logan County.

Visitation for Dannie Blick will be Thursday, July 13, after 5 p.m. at Young Funeral Chapel in Russellville.

It will continue from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Friday, July 14, at Second Baptist Church in Russellville.

The funeral will follow at 1 p.m. at the church with burial in Maple Grove Cemetery.
