A South Carolina sheriff’s detective was in Costa Rica for his daughter’s wedding when he suffered a fatal heart attack after the father-daughter dance.

Tim Buchanan, 54, a 19-year veteran of the York County Sheriff’s office, served in the Army National Guard for 12 years and was most recently a detective in cyber crimes, according to his obituary.

Friends set up a GoFundMe page to support the family after their sudden loss, Fox 46 reported.
