YORK COUNTY, SC – A new bride is mourning the loss of her father after he passed away suddenly during her wedding.

According to the South Carolina Sherriff’s Association, Tim Buchanan was a longtime detective for the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Last week he traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate his daughter Jeni’s wedding on Saturday.

During the wedding, Tim suffered a heart attack shortly after the father-daughter dance. Sadly, Tim later passed away.

The South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association shared a post about Buchanan on Facebook that links to a GoFundMe page.

“If you know Jeni, you know how much Tim means to her, and how wonderful that love is that they share,” wrote Jenni’s friend Jenn Lewis.
