SARPY COUNTY, NE - A long-time employee of the Sarpy County sheriff's office has lost his battle with cancer.

Investigator Rick Staack died Wednesday morning around 11:00.  The sheriff's office said his battle had been lengthy.  Just last month, a spaghetti dinner and silent auction were held to help his family pay his medical bills.  At the time, Staack told KMTV Action 3 News he was overwhelmed by all the support.

Investigator Staack became a Sarpy County Deputy on January 8, 1989.  During his twenty-four year career, he worked the Jail, Road Patrol, Narcotics and the Investigations Divisions.  Staack was also an active member in the Emergency Services Unit and the Bike Team. Funeral arrangements are pending.
