EL PASO COUNTY — The Sheriff's Office announce this afternoon that retired Deputy Tony Scherb has died following a long and courageous battle with cancer.
You may not have seen Deputy Scherb on the street, but you more than likely saw him in your social media feed. He became a viral sensation 3 years ago thanks to a video from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office that shows Scherb leading a dance party in an elevator.
A spokesperson says he was always know as a great guy to be around. At the time that viral video was created, he had already learned he had cancer. The 32-year veteran of EPCSO retired 6 months ago.
News5 offers our condolences to Scherb's family and the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
