Destin was an awesome sheepdog, ultimate team player, and a great guy! His father, Scott is a Lieutenant with the Franklin, Tennessee Police Department. He worked the third shift, his contributions to his department, shift members and our community will not be forgotten. Rest in peace and Titan Up!
