Fundraiser for Vickery Family is Saturday; Vickery’s Battle with Heart Disease Ended Thursday

According to Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders, the Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser for Steven Vickery’s family will take place Saturday 8 a.m. until noon at Fire Station #20, Hopkins County Central Fire Station next to UPS on South Texas Street. Vickery’s life ended Thursday following his battle with heart disease, according to Sanders. Sanders and Hopkins County Fire Chief Andy Endsley were to be guests on the Morning Show on KSST Friday morning to promote the event. In respect to the family in their loss, they will not appear. However, the fundraiser remains a vital opportunity to assist his family in their sorrow.

Vickery was facing a second open heart surgery or a heart transplant after his health forced an end to his nine year career as a firefighter. Vickery’s wife has been unable to work as a teacher’s aide while caring for her husband and their four children.

The need now is a great as ever and even more so. The community has an opportunity to honor the life and assist the family of Vickery Saturday, February 4th.
