This morning, we were deeply saddened to learn that retired Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Ronnie Quick died peacefully while in the presence of his family at his home in Ashland, La. following a lengthy illness according to Sheriff Stuart Wright.

Deputy Quick served under the administrations of the late Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Boyd Durr and Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.

While serving under the leadership of Sheriff Durr and Sheriff Jones, Deputy Quick worked part time as a NPSO Reserve Deputy for 9 years, then hired as a full time deputy sheriff for 23 years.

Deputy Quick began his career working dispatch in the NPSO Communications Division, then transferred to the Patrol Division as a patrol deputy patrolling and answering calls for service in north Natchitoches Parish.

Ronnie would later advance and was promoted to the Criminal Investigations Division as a Criminal Investigator working homicide, robbery, burglary, missing persons and theft cases mostly in north Natchitoches Parish.

Deputy Quick was certified as a latent fingerprint analysis technician and member of the NPSO Search & Rescue Team.

Deputy Quick was always concerned about the safety of the citizens in his patrol sector of north Natchitoches Parish. He knew where every citizen lived in his area and often stopped by and checked on senior citizens.

After his retirement, he loved spending time with his family and friends, gardening, riding his tractor, hunting and singing at church.

Deputy Quick is survived by his wife (Angel), his two daughters (Bayli and Valerie Paolini) and three sons (Ryan Quick, Caleb Quick and Morgan Cole).

Sheriff Wright and all of the deputies of the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office extend our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to retired Deputy Quick’s family and friends.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
