Lynn County Sheriff Vega dies from COVID-19

Posted: Updated:


After weeks of being hospitalized with COVID-19, Lynn County Sheriff Abraham Vega has died, according to the Texas Chief Deputies Association.

Earlier this week, Sheriff Vega was airlifted to receive treatment in Dallas after spending about two weeks hospitalized in Lubbock where he was on a ventilator for nine days. The Chief Deputies Association reported Friday morning that the treatment appeared to be working and that he was improving. 

Vega served as the president of the Chief Deputies Association from 2015-2016. He won the Republican primary on his way toward re-election as Lynn County Sheriff in March. He is survived by his wife, Rachel. 

Tributes have been posted from area first responders including Wolfforth Fire and EMS: "Everyone at Wolfforth Fire Department would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family, both blood and blue, of Lynn County Sheriff Abraham Vega. Sheriff Vega lost his battle to CoVid 19. Rest easy brother. We’ll take it from here."
