It is with a sad and heavy heart that I report Navarro County Sheriff's Office Deputy Charles Paul has passed away this morning after a brief illness.

We ask that you please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with this time of grief, especially during these trying times and difficult circumstances.

Charles was a huge part of our family here at the NCSO. He had over 21 years of dedicated service in our agency and was a recent Navarro County Constable elect for
Precinct 2. To say we are in shock over our friend, Deputy Paul's death, would be an understatement.

Our hearts and many prayers go out to the family of our fallen comrade. This is another tragic blow to law enforcement and it hits close to home here in Navarro County.

Arrangements are pending at Paschal Funeral Home in Kerens.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner
