Bio: James (Jerry) Critchelow was a devout member of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, retired after 30 years of service with KY State Police, and was an Ohio Co. Deputy working as the Resource Officer for Ohio Co. Schools.

Jerry was a man of faith, a devoted husband and provider. He has been described as many things: avid hunter, athlete, witty, knife-tosser, animal lover, prankster, protector, spray-foamer, teacher, taxidermist, leader, fixer-upper, scuba diver, gardener, powered parachuter, brutally considerate, hibachi chef, hero, friend, explorer, marksman, listener, consoler, singer, and story teller.

He never met a stranger, never said no to someone in need, and was a breath of fresh air. He loved his family, his law enforcement families, his students, and all the staff at Ohio Co. High School. He was born to serve and make people feel loved.

As Jerry would say, 'I occur.'

Survived by:
Wife
& daughters
