SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — The Grayson County Sheriff's Office is honoring fallen deputies with a new addition to their memorial garden.

"It's not just these two men; it's every name that's honored this week and all the police weeks past," said Capt. Martin Hall. 

The memorial is more than gravel and a bench; it represents the deputies killed while on duty.

"Kind of gave us another opportunity to get together with the family and hold them close to our hearts," Hall said. "Let them know... in our way... that neither of these men are going to be forgotten any time soon. I mean, they're always going to be here in our hearts, in our thoughts, and in our prayers."

The memorial features flowers and personalized flags; a bench is named "The West End Legend," paying tribute to 16-year Investigator Dusty L. Wainscott, who died while apprehending suspects in 2021.

"He had a laugh and a way about him that put people at ease; he was very just jolly and happy, a good person to be around," recalled colleague Lt. Jeremy Cox. "He took that same personality and put it out on the street, and really helped people that he came into contact with."

The memorial garden also honors Deputy Chad Christian Key, who was hit by a car in 2013 while working on the side of a road. 

"He was on patrol for 77 days when he got killed, and so it was kind of tough to ... basically lose somebody that early on in their career just kind of getting started," Hall said. "But when he and I got to work shift together, he was amazing to work with... always fun-loving, kind of like to cut up."

Hall and Cox said the memorial garden is welcome for officers, family, and the public to sit down and reflect on their memories with the fallen deputies.
