MCSO says Weyler served as a law enforcement officer for 41 years, initially with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office before moving to the Western Slope.

“Wayne gave so much of himself to serve his fellow man. He was a leader, mentor, and genuinely nice human being. Words can’t express how much he will be missed,” said Sheriff Todd Rowell. “Please join us in honoring his memory and sending your thoughts and prayers to his family.”

Weyler was 64 years old.
