The Door County Sheriff's Department regrettably announced on Monday the passing of Deputy Mark Winkel, who unexpectedly passed away last Thursday. Winkel, 59, was a 36-year Door County Sheriff's Office veteran who worked as a juvenile and drug investigator for many years. After his full-time retirement, Winkel returned to the Sheriff's Office as a special deputy. Sheriff Deputy Pat McCarty says Winkel was a consummate professional whose loss will be felt throughout the law enforcement department.
McCarty adds that Winkel was instrumental in establishing a Door County SWAT team and was the team leader at the time of his retirement. Funeral services for Deputy Mark Winkel will be at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday at Huehns Funeral Home, with visitation starting at 10:00 a.m. until the time of service.
