Sheriff Chris GERBRANDT (1969 SEPT 14 to 2015 DEC 12)

On 2015 DEC 12 Chris, along with his wife and one son, were travelling on Hwy #3, in the Taber District, Alberta, when their vehicle was struck by an oncoming vehicle which crossed into their lane. Unfortunately Chris and the other driver were killed.  His wife and son were seriously injured and both spent a fair amount of time in hospital recovering from their injuries. Chris began his career with the Alberta Sheriffs in 2008 and was posted to Medicine Hat where he primarily served at the local court house doing court security and prisoner escort. In this role he was well known by members of the Redcliff RCMP and Medicine Hat Police Service. The funeral was held at the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre, in Medicine Hat, on 2016 FEB 06 and well attended by members of the Cypress Hills and Lethbridge RCMP Vets Divisions, Medicine Hat Police Service, Alberta Sheriffs, Canadian Armed Forces (Chris had enlisted in the CAF in 1987 and at the time of his death he was a Captain with the local Army Cadets) and Medicine Hat Burns Club in which Chris had been an active member before his passing.
