Friends, family members and the law enforcement family remembered a Kanawha County deputy who lost his life after a yearlong battle with cancer Aug. 31.
Memorial services were held Tuesday for Cpl. Greg Eplin in Logan where he lived.
The court bailiff saw his life suddenly change last summer when he was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Coworkers raised some $60,000 to help his family with medical expenses, but the disease took his life last week, the same week two troopers were murdered.
During emotional ceremonies, Eplin was praised by his former boss, Irene Berger. Berger is a U.S. district judge and former Kanawha County Circuit judge.
