Oriskany, NY (WIBX) – It’s been one year since Deputy Kurt Wyman’s death and the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office has not forgotten his sacrifice.

Friends, family, officers and the community came out this morning for a memorial ceremony held at the Oneida County Law Enforcement Building in Oriskany.

A flag once flown over the nation’s capital flew at half-mast behind the ceremony as Kurt Wyman’s father, Brian, and Sheriff Robert Maciol addressed the crowd.

Brian Wyman says his son’s legacy centered around those closest to him and his community.

“Kurt’s legacy basically revolved around three or four things,” Wyman said. “He loved his family, he loved his God, he loved his country. Serving in the military was a lifelong thing that he wanted to do.”

His legacy will also continue to live through his son Alexander and his daughter, Adyson, who is celebrating her first birthday today.

Sheriff Maciol, who spoke about the community’s efforts to continue remembering Wyman’s life,  says the deputy’s sacrifice will not be forgotten by those who continue to protect and serve.

“He’s a true hero, and like I said, he’s a hero law enforcement officer, a hero dad, a hero son, a hero friend and a hero soldier,” Maciol said. “And we will never forget Deputy Kurt Wyman.”

The deputy is also being remembered in other ways. Money is being raised to build soccer fields at the new Kurt B. Wyman Memorial Park in Westmoreland, honoring Wyman’s love for the sport. The park is still at least a year from completion, but a website has been established detailing a fundraiser to be held next spring.
