Williamson County announced on Sept. 13 that Precinct 3 Constable Kevin Stofle had passed away suddenly.

“Kevin Stofle was one of the most honorable men I know. He was a man of integrity, truth, and character. He dedicated his life to serving others, which he did with courage and commitment. He was a role model for not only the deputies who served under him in the Precinct 3 Constable's Office, but those he taught or mentored along the way," Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell Jr. said in a press release. "More than a dedicated public servant, Kevin Stofle was a loyal son, brother, husband, and father. He was completely devoted to his family. The best way that we can honor the life of Kevin Stofle is to give his family time and space to grieve.”

Stofle was appointed Constable for Precinct 3 by a unanimous vote from the Williamson County Commissioners Court in 2013. During a lengthy career, Stofle logged more than 33 years in law enforcement including as Georgetown Police Department’s Assistant Chief of Police and as the city’s Emergency Management Coordinator.

The Precinct 3 Constable's Office will be closed this week to honor Stofle.

A cause of death was not listed in the release.
