August 26, 1985
Sergeant Harold F. Holerger joined the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office in 1963. He had a distinguished career with the agency, and retired in 1981.
Shortly after his retirement, he took a part-time position as a school crossing guard.
On the morning of August 26, 1985, Sgt. Holerger was directing traffic on Angle Road at the entrance to Westwood High School, when he was struck and killed by a motor vehicle.
His commitment lives on with the Sheriff's Office firearms training range that bears "Pappy" Holerger's name.
