  • Scott worked with us at Brooksville PD. He was always there when there was a need for “a little extra community interaction”( PD vs FD bicycle race, Crime Stoppers Fashion Show, etc.”) An Officer with a great sense of humor, and dedication to duty. He did a great job for the City of Brooksville when at BPD, and I am sure he did the same in Taylor County. So sad that GOD decided he needed him more than we did. RIP Scott..

  • Wow! All of your wonderful and thoughtful comments about my brother in-law are sure helping all his family find a little peace this night. Scotty is simply non-replaceable. He was with Brooksville PD, but has been with Taylor County Sherrifs Department for a while now. He absolutely loved God, his son, his family, his friends, his fellow officers and his country, our country. May all who knew him and loved him find the peace that they need at this time, and thank you to all who didn’t even know him, but who have shown your support regardless. This is why our country is great, because of people like him and you. ???

    • I don’t think there is a bad word that could be said. He was a good man that brought so much laughter to everyone he met and humor to every situation. You can’t say that about many people. We could all learn something from him.
