Sheriff Michael Heldman says it was a nice sendoff.



Sheriff Heldman says McGuire, 59, made a big impact during his 38 years with the sheriff’s office as a School Resource Officer, Explorer Post Advisor, and Deputy Sheriff.

The sheriff says McGuire touched the lives of a lot of young people with the Explorers program.




More than 500 people attended McGuire’s funeral at the Old Mill Stream Centre and then a very long line of police, fire and other vehicles were in the procession from Findlay to McComb.

“Mike’s ready smile and wit raised many a spirit around the office. His life had a profound impact on everyone around him, and he will be greatly missed.”
