BRIGHAM CITY, Utah, Oct. 27, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Brigham City’s Assistant Police Chief Dennis Vincent, who had a catastrophic aneurysm and stroke on Oct. 18, died Friday evening.

“It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce that our friend and brother, Dennis Vincent, passed away this evening, Friday, October 26th,” the Brigham City Police Department posted on Facebook. “We are all forever changed from having known him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Vincent had collapsed a week ago Thursday after taking his annual physical fitness standards test. He was immediately transported to Brigham City Community Hospital and then flown by medical helicopter to the U of U Hospital Neuro Critical Care Unit, where he underwent emergency surgery to stop the bleeding on his brain.

“Everyone who knows Dennis knows what an amazing man he is,” BCPD posted on Saturday, Oct. 20, following word that he was in stable but critical condition. “We love him and want him back healthy and whole again. We ask that you please keep Dennis and his family in your prayers during this extraordinarily difficult time.”

Hundreds of people expressed their love and concern at that time.

Within an hour of learning of Vincent’s death Friday night, nearly 400 people had reacted on Facebook with love and condolences to his family and grief over his passing.


  1. Dennis Vincent was truly an amazing person, with a smile and a joke for everyone. He did our city proud as the Assistant Chief of Police, and my Ward’s Bishopric First Counselor. He will be very missed and our hearts and lives will never be the same. Until we meet again, Dennis, we’ve “got your six”.
