First responders from the Walterboro Police and Fire Departments, Colleton County Sheriff’s Office and Fire-Rescue lined the streets of Walterboro last week as a motorcade escorted former law enforcement officer David Cook from Charleston to Hampton.
Cook died from cancer on Monday. He formerly worked with the S.C. Highway Patrol, Yemassee Police Department and Colleton Fire-Rescue.
“David is a good man and dedicated honorable public servant with whom I had the pleasure of working beside for many years. He’s the selfless kind of man who would take the shirt of his back if you needed it. I ask everyone in the community to please join our first responder family in sending prayers for David and his family during this difficult time,” said Sheriff R.A. Strickland.
