Trigg County Emergency Management and Facilities Director Randy Wade passed away suddenly at his home Friday at the age of 60.
Friends say it was likely a heart attack that took Wade’s life.
Wade served as Emergency Management Director on a part-time basis for 10 years and as Facilities Director for the last nine.
Wade served Emergency Management during some of Trigg County’s toughest times, including the ice storm of 2009 and the massive snow storm just before Christmas in 2004. Former Trigg Judge-Executive and current State Senator Stan Humphries says Wade was a strong leader through it all.
