Deputy Mark Winkel remembered as "consummate professional"

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.  You can read his full obituary with this link.
