Tracy Gay Death, Obituary – We are devastated to notify you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Tracy Gay, who served both in law enforcement and as a detective. On Wednesday, January 4, 2019, Detective Gay left for unclear reasons, and his whereabouts have not been heard from since. For the past three decades, Detective Gay has worked for the local police department to protect and serve the community. When he started working for the Saline County Sheriff’s Office for the first time, it was in the month of April 1993.
Since that time, he has put in the effort necessary to climb the ladder of success and is now the Lieutenant in command of the Criminal Investigation Division. Detective Gay took a break from his line of work in November of 2009, but it was only for a brief length of time because it was only for a short period of time. In August of 2011, he enlisted in the Bryant Police Department because he had the conviction that he needed to continue responding to the call he had received to assist other people. He went back to patrolling the streets as a patrol officer in order to work his way back to the component of this job that he enjoyed the most, which was being a criminal investigator.
He did this so that he could get back to doing what he liked best. Detective Gay was an outstanding member of the police force who carried out his job with the finest level of integrity and commitment every single day. He had a significant impact, not only on the functioning of this organization but also on the daily lives of a significant number of its members. We are going to miss having him here with us. We are keeping him, his family, and all of his friends in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We will remain grateful till the end of time that we had the opportunity to serve alongside him, that we knew him, and, most importantly, that he was our friend.
It’s now safe for Detective Tracy Gay to take a break and relax. From this point forward, we will take care of everything.
