Funeral set for pilot killed in helicopter crash

CORBIN — By Becky Killian / Editor

The funeral for the former Laurel County Sheriff’s chief deputy who died Thursday when the  helicopter he was piloting crashed is set for Tuesday.

The funeral for Eddy Sizemore, 61, will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church in London. Burial will follow in Locust Grove Cemetery.

Visitation is from 5-9 p.m. today (Monday) at the church.

Sizemore, who was a pilot for Air Evac Lifeteam, was killed about 11 p.m. Thursday when the helicopter crashed in the parking lot of Paces Creek Elementary School in Manchester. The school is located across the street from the Air Evac Lifeteam’s helipad.  

Also killed in the crash were Paramedic Lee Dobbs, 40, of London, and Flight Nurse Jesse Jones, of Pineville.

No patient was on board at the time of the crash, which is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The three victims were taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort Friday. Later that day, the three were brought back to the area by a mile-long escort of emergency responders that included deputies, police, firefighters and some members of Sizemore’s family. About 19 agencies participated in the escort and included responders from Laurel County, London, Clay County and Manchester.

A complete obituary appears on Page 6 in today’s edition of the Times-Tribune.
