On March 3, 1937, Sergeant John H. Lockhart died of a cerebral hemorrhage, five days after injuring his head from a slip and fall accident.

On February 26, 1937, Sergeant Lockhart, 43, was entering his troop car at SP Highland to respond to a break-in at a local drug store when he slipped on ice and struck his forehead on the top wooden frame brace of the car. He continued to work for two days with extreme headaches before he went unconscious on the night of February 27. He was transported to Kingston Hospital and never regained consciousness.

Sergeant Lockhart joined the Division on June 1, 1919 and was involved in a number of the large cases at the time.
