This morning I woke up to find that my uncle Rick Hirtzel lost a really tough battle with COVID. I’m a whirlwind of emotions. My uncles all played a big role in my upbringing and reflecting on old memories has been bittersweet. Special thank you to Jackson County Sheriff’s Department for providing the late night escort from Indianapolis back to Seymour for my uncle and family. Such a beautiful tribute to his dedication and service. Please keep my family in your thoughts. My mother and her siblings are very close and navigating this has not been an easy process.
Rick Hirtzel was a very good friend of mine and to many at the Sheriffs Department for many years. Rick was a good officer and will truly be missed by so many. My last text with Rick was for him to get better and worry about him and his family first and coming back to us at the department last and he said “don’t give up on me”. He knew that would never happen, we would have waited forever and never given up. Rick never gave up, not even now, he was just called to do bigger and better things. While Rick watches over everyone who has gone before us….he can rest assured that we will take it from here, until we meet again my friend. And what an honor this morning assisting the Sheriff and other deputies in helping escort Rick back home to Jackson Co.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department mourns the loss of Reserve Deputy Rick Hirtzel. Deputy Hirtzel gave the citizens of Jackson County over 30 years of service. You could always see Deputy Hirtzel providing security at the Brownstown Speedway, Fort Vallonia Days and the Tampico Tractor Pulls. He also took many road calls and was a big help to our full-time deputies.
We will miss you and we thank you for your service.
It is with extremely heavy hearts we have to make this post as we have lost one of our own.
Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with the family of our Rick Hirtzel. We know he has been fighting as hard as he could and is now among the Angels to watch over us. Rick has been one of our “Brownstown Cops” for several years at the track. Rick has always been there to stand behind us, make us laugh, offer a hug when he knew we needed it most, and most of all be our friend.
Rick will be missed by many and we ask at this time you please be respectful and ask no questions and keep his family, his fellow brothers of law enforcement, along with our Brownstown Speedway family in your prayers for the days to come. We love you Hirtzel and we know you will be up there watching over us with Murphy. God speed Hirtzel. -The entire staff of Brownstown Speedway
