OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Friends, family and fellow law enforcement are saying their farewell to long-time Lafayette County Sheriff Buddy East.

The late sheriff passed away over the weekend.

Long-term friends say he will be truly missed.

“Every time I saw him he would always wave or shake my hand; he’s really nice and friendly,” said Lawanda Jones.

“I just want to send my sincere condolences to the entire community because whoever tries to replace him it won’t work because he can’t be replaced,” said Annie Manning.

Funeral services have been set for Friday, October 14 at 11 a.m. at North Oxford Baptist Church.
