Almost a year after Officer Nate Lyday was killed in the line of duty, Fresh Market of East Ogden, Utah, and the Ogden City Police Force honored his memory with the first Ogden City Police Fallen Officer Memorial Golf Scramble.
All the funds raised from the event, which took place April 23 at the El Monte Golf Course, will be used to send the Lyday family to Washington, D.C., to witness as his name is placed on the Fallen Officer Wall later this year.
Lyday was a former Fresh Market team member who was respected and revered by those who interacted with him at the East Ogden location. Fresh Market was a proud sponsor of this event.
“Working with Nate was an honor. His loss was felt deeply by his family at Fresh Market East Ogden and we are grateful to be part of such an emotional and worthy event,” said Nick Douros, store director at East Ogden Fresh Market.
In memory of Officer Lyday, a tree was planted last fall in the parking lot of the grocery store. “Nate was near and dear to our hearts, and I’m grateful to have a permanent place to remember him,” said Douros.
