Prayer service planned for fallen NPSO deputy Ricky Issac Jr.

1955

A brief prayer service for fallen NPSO Deputy Ricky Issac Jr. will be Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. on La. Hwy 1, south of Cypress.

The service will take place at the cross at the crash scene.

Deputy Issac was killed in a single-vehicle crash Dec. 8, 2012, on La. Hwy 1 south of Cypress during a period of heavy rain. Deputy Issac’s patrol unit hydroplaned as he entered a curve in the roadway. The vehicle left the roadway on the left side as he was traveling southbound, went down an embankment and struck several trees. Despite wearing his seat belt and life saving measures by emergency medical services Deputy Issac suffered fatal injuries.

Each year, we hold a prayer service to honor and remember Deputy Ricky Issac for his service and ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Natchitoches Parish.

He is survived by his wife, Akilah, and son, Ricky.

We ask that deputies attend the brief service if possible.
