Deputy Warden James Brock was killed when he was attacked by a prisoner at the U.S. Penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia.

Warden Brock, who was also a doctor, was struck in the back of the head with an iron bar. The prisoner who struck him had been employed in some building work at the prison and had managed to hide the bar in a scrap heap. He had a grudge against Brock for refusing some favor.

Warden Brock was a native of Dade County and was well known and much liked throughout the state.

Rest in Peace

I ask one thing - that in still, far-off days,
Someone who knew me should in their daily rounds,
Suddenly pause, caught by some sight or sound,
Some glance, some phrase, some trick of memory's ways
which brings me to mind, then I shall wait,
eager with hope, perhaps to hear -
“how great if he were with us still!”
And then at the end, all that I wish for is just -
“he was my friend!”

From “A Soldier's Epitaph” by David McNicholl
