He loved his family, his job, his community and fishing.
And on Saturday, April 2, retired Kentucky State Police Lt. Ray Herman, 64, of Campbellsburg, died after a fishing accident at Kentucky Dam.
Herman and Andy Myers of Louisville drowned. A third man swam to safety.
According to the Paducah Sun, Sgt. Garry Clark of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife said the water there is “more turbulent and can be dangerous,” but that fishermen frequent the area because that’s where the catfish are.
