Livingston County School Resource Officer Bob Caskey died at his home Saturday after a battle with cancer.

In a statement, Livingston County Sheriff Bobby Davidson told Local 6, “Bob was a fine man and officer. There is no way of knowing the number of lives he has touched and helped through his 37 years of service. He will be missed.”

Caskey also spent time with the Mayfield Police Department, Graves County Sheriff’s Office, McCracken County Sheriff’s Office and the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.  He was a patrol officer, deputy sheriff and detective during his 37 years in law enforcement.

Visitation for Caskey is Tuesday, January 13 from 4-8pm at Hughes Funeral Home off exit 11 on Interstate 24.  His funeral is Wednesday, January 14 at 11am also at Hughes Funeral Home.

In remembrance of Caskey, McCracken County Sheriff John Hayden said “In trying to think of words to describe Bob, a few immediately come to mind. Humility first and foremost. And helpfulness. He was always someone that always was there eager to help anyone in anyway he could. He always tried his hardest to do whatever was asked of him. Bob will be missed by everyone that knew him.”
