Chauncey and Kenny Tate knew Jeffco sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Renfro for just a few minutes, but they will never forget him.
Renfro stopped to help the Denver brother and sister Saturday after their car crashed on U.S. 285, and he was struck by another vehicle and killed. Chauncey’s 9-month-old son, Angus, also was in their car.
Renfro, a 15-year veteran of the department, was off duty when he pulled over at the accident scene on southbound U.S. 285 near Windy Point during a severe snowstorm.
