CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The head of the Cambridge Police Department says a man who died following a heavy equipment accident on Wednesday was a "successful police officer and businessperson, dedicated family man and community-minded citizen."

Chief Randy LePage issued a statement on Thursday regarding the death of 41-year-old Kevin Sowers. LePage wrote that Sowers, during his five years of service to the Cambridge Police, served as a uniformed officer and then as a detective. Sowers earned two Exceptional Service awards, an Honorable Service award and four letters of commendation between 1995 and 2000.

LePage says Sowers investigated numerous serious crimes and performed his duties seriously and professionally. LePage added: "He was particularly passionate about investigations involving child victims and treated all citizens with respect."

Chief LePage said the Cambridge Police Department joins the community in extending sympathies to the entire Sowers family during their time of loss.

Cambridge Police detectives say Sowers was pinned underneath an electric lift on Wednesday afternoon after the equipment malfunctioned, ejected Sowers and overturned. He was transported to Southeastern Med in Cambridge, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Calling hours for Sowers are set for 6 to 9 tonight, and Services are at 11 a.m. Saturday at Bundy-Law Funeral Home on North 11th Street in Cambridge.
