Golf Tournament to Benefit Family of Trooper Killed in Clayton County Crash

A charity golf tournament scheduled for this weekend will benefit the family of a State Trooper who died in a crash in Clayton County last fall. 

Trooper Dennis Schnathorst, a member of the Hamilton County Peace Officers Association, says every year there’s a different recipient chosen. 

The 37-year-old Benda lived in rural Decorah. He was killed when he swerved to avoid a deer and crashed near Postville on October 14th. He died in the hospital a few days later. 

The association’s golf tournament is Saturday at Briggs Woods Golf Course in Webster City. Several of Benda’s family members are scheduled to attend. You can find more information on the Hamilton County Peace Officers Association Facebook page.
