Friend and Colleague Cary Pickens Passed Away.

MARCH 6, 2010

Saturday morning our friend and colleague Cary Pickens, Dearborn County Auditor, passed away of an apparent heart attack.  I think Bob Plantenga, former Auditor of Tippeaconoe county said it best when he said “Certainly Cary was a character. But a fine person and dedicated public servant.”  Our thoughts are with his family and I am sure Cary is giving a big “Semper Fi” to his Marine buddies in heaven.  May he rest in peace.
