Burg Simpson Helps Deputies Honor Fallen Officer
Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies paid tribute to one of their own last week – with a hockey game.
A suspect shot Adams County Deputy Heath Gumm to death during a foot chase on Jan. 24, 2018.
So several of his former recreation league hockey teammates and law enforcement colleagues honored him with a charity hockey game in Superior, Colorado. All of the proceeds from the game – including ticket and concession sales, and a silent auction – went to Gumm’s widow.
Burg Simpson, a longtime supporter of the law enforcement community, pitched in by providing all the hockey jerseys players used during the game – all of which featured Gumm’s number.
In addition to Burg Simpson’s charity work, shareholder Nick D. Fogel works to help first responders who have been hurt in the line of duty.
