Reflections for Trooper Sherman Lee Scott, Jr.

Lee was a big guy that was also athletic. He moved to the small town of Wellborn, Fl, about his 7th or 8th grade from Pa I believe. We were amazed at how well he did in sports- baseball and football. In baseball he was a catcher and football, offense fullback and defense, tackle. I was in the army in Korea, transferred home Christmas, 1964, and a few days after I was home Lee was killed. My Father was a lawman and we went to Lee's funeral together. Having played sports with Lee so much and graduating with him I felt a personal loss. I also felt a loss for our culture, as Lee was only doing his job and victim of a senseless act. He was a great person, good citizen and represented our Law Enforcement well. The killing of Officer Moyer in a traffic stop, Callahan, Fl, on September 24, 2021, brought back memories of my friend Lee Scott. God bless those protectors of us in their work.

Lee was my First Cousin, the son of my Father’s Brother. In life he was always my hero, and had a great impact on my years growing up. Our oldest son was named in his memory. I served 12 years in police service. His legacy will never be forgotten.

The recent dedication of the Trooper Sherman L Scott Jr Memorial Highway is a proud moment in my family. Uncle Lee (he was always known as Lee) was my mother's baby brother. There has been a hole in our hearts these past 55 years that can never be filled. I only wish we had known in time to attend the dedication. Thank you to all who made this possible.

Rest peacefully, Uncle Lee.

Trooper Sherman Lee Scott, Jr. is remembered at the annual Baker County Sheriff's Office Memorial for his sacrifice to our state and our community. Tomorrow, Friday, February 21, 2020, the Trooper Sherman L. Scott, Jr. Memorial Highway will be dedicated -- a stretch of highway on I-10 between mile markers 327 and 332. The dedication will be held at the Florida Highway Patrol station on Normandy Blvd. in Jacksonville. My husband, state representative Chuck Brannan was proud to introduce legislation during the 2019 legislative session to remember Trooper Scott and 48 troopers killed in the line of duty who did not yet have a highway designation. We will be in attendance for the ceremony along with our Sheriff and Chuck's father, a retired trooper who was also stationed in Baker County with Trooper Scott. Our hope is that motorists, when they see and pass the memorial highway sign, will always recall Trooper Scott's and his family's sacrifice.

The recent killing of one Pa State Trooper and serious wounding of another brings me back many times to that January morning when the call came from FHP Trooper Fred S. informing my mom that her brother, Trooper Sherman Lee Scott Jr. ended his watch at the hands of a killer in Northern Florida. Knowing how my uncle 'Lee' lived made it a little easier to handle because I knew as he passed on the roadside that he was being guided to everlasting peace in the hands of the Lord. I was, and am still VERY PROUD of Lee's service, which he performed until his last earthly breath.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection. You served us well......RIP brother.” May the memory of your service and sacrifice remain forever.
