Excerpt from Sunday's editorial: Former Erie County Sheriff John Magnuson died last week, prompting an outpouring of memories and appreciation for his service.

And most everyone seemed to agree: The sheriff was an icon who understood the dynamics of people and the circumstances of life. He saw it in subordinates — of which he had many — and was a teacher; he saw it in victims of crime and served as the conscious of community; he saw criminals and criminal suspects and was the enforcer, a man who respected the rules.

His was a life well-lived, in service to his community. 

Thank you, Sheriff.

John was the epitome of kindness
Putting others ahead of himself
The world and Erie county are far better for having had his leadership
