Davis Road was lined with flag-waving members of the Patriot Guard Riders and backed up with traffic leading to Thomas L. King Funeral Home, where the visitation for Richmond County sheriff’s Deputy James D. Paugh was held Wednesday evening.
Paugh, who was shot to death early Sunday, was an old family friend of Larry Wylds, who came to the visitation. Wylds remembers Paugh as a good person, and someone who enjoyed life.
“He was always good about being the butt of our jokes,” Wylds said with a smile. “He treated everybody fair, and was just a good guy.”
Wylds said he plans to ride with the Patriot Guard motorcycle riders in the funeral procession today.
