The sheriff’s office asks that those wishing to pay their respects to Deputy Flick refrain from bringing any electronic devices into the service and that you “respect the dignity and custom of our grieving for Deputy Flick.”
There will be rolling closures along the route, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office said.
Denver7 will livestream Deputy Flick’s funeral on TheDenverChannel.com in the player below starting at 1 p.m. We will also stream the funeral on our Denver7 Facebook page.
Flick was shot and killed during a struggle with a suspect in Colorado Springs Monday. Two other deputies and a Colorado Springs officer were wounded in the shooting. The shooting suspect was killed.
Flick was a father of twins and a well-liked member of the force, celebrating his 11th anniversary with the office the day he was shot.
He grew up in the Colorado Springs area and attended Christian schools. He started with the sheriff’s office in 2006 and quickly rose through the ranks.
If you’d like to donate to the Flick family, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has set up an online donation link through their website. You can also donate by visiting the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Foundation, located at 1980 Dominion Way, Ste. 200 in Colorado Springs.
Saturday’s service will mark the third funeral for a fallen deputy in Colorado over the past five weeks.
Ten officers have been shot, three of whom were killed, in the line of duty during three separate incidents involving five departments since Dec. 31 of last year.
