(MSC News)--Former Elwood police chief Larry Hunsaker is being remembered.

Current Chief Neal Hontz told KQ2-TV that Hunsaker died Wednesday while visiting family in San Diego, California. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

Hunsaker's career in Doniphan County law enforcement spanned over two decades.

He came to the Elwood Police Department in 1999 as a patrol officer. He later joined the Doniphan County Sheriff's Office, where he eventually became Sheriff. He then went back to Elwood Police where he was made Chief until retiring this August in his early 60's.

Hunsaker continued to serve the Doniphan County area after his retirement as a part-time investigator with the Doniphan County Sheriff's Department.

Hontz told the TV station Hunsaker leaves behind a legacy of strength, friendship and years of service.  

Funeral arrangements are pending, but Hontz said the department along with surrounding law enforcement agencies will hold a send-off for their former chief and sheriff in the near future.
