Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Joseph John Matuskovic

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Not a day goes by that you aren't thought about. The good times we had at FLETC when on duty, and you encouraging me to drive towards getting out of there and on with a department. I couldn't thank you enough for all that you've helped me with. Rest in peace brother.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Joseph was killed.

To the Matuskovic family, fellow deputies, and all who call Joseph beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Matuskovic gave to his community and the citizens of South Carolina, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 8, 2014.
