South Carolina deputy dies after father-daughter dance at wedding

YORK COUNTY, S.C. — When a father and daughter danced together at the daughter’s wedding, they didn’t know it would be one of their final moments with each other.

Tim Buchanan, a longtime detective with the York County Sheriff’s Office, died from a heart attack over the weekend, WBTV reported.

The heart attack struck at his daughter’s wedding in Costa Rica, right after the father-daughter dance.

“You never know when the last time will be the last time,” Buchanan’s wife, Jeni, wrote in a Facebook post. “I am so very grateful for this image of us that our dear friends Kelly Rae Stewart and her husband snuck during our daughter’s wedding yesterday,” she wrote. “Little did I know just a few hours later we would lose him.”
