Letter to the editor: Memorial service for Senior Master Sgt. Maggard is Sept. 24 at Heath Pavilion


On Sept. 26, 2022, we will encounter the 20th anniversary of the untimely death of Senior Master Sgt. Timothy "Tim" Maggard. The evening prior to his planned retirement from Shaw Air Force Base, Tim attended a Men's Meeting at his church, and once he left the meeting, evil took his life. A horrific act of violence and cowardness.

Working with his wife, Millie, and their children Justin and Jessica, we have planned a 20th Anniversary Memorial Service on Saturday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m., at Swan Lake's Heath Pavilion. The public is invited as his family and friends will share their thoughts and join representatives from Shaw AFB to honor Tim. If you are available, please join us.

A Godly man who lived his faith, forever loved his family and professionally represented the Air Force. Taken much too soon. We will not forget!
