valuable, respected member of bcso team
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week as our community and agency braced for Hurricane Matthew we lost one of our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Family members, Communications Officer Nancy Hinkle who passed away on October 6 after fighting a long battle with cancer.
Nancy was a valuable and respected member of our team and the effects of her passing are already being felt here by her fellow employees and friends.
For those of us that had the privilege of knowing her, we were always humbled by her amazing spirit and strength, as well as her kindness and compassion to everyone around her. Her commitment to serving the citizens of Brevard County as a Communications Officer, Shift Supervisor and Training Officer for 19-years will never be forgotten.
She was a loving daughter, wife and mother who is survived by her husband Ray of 23-years, son Jacob, mother Mary Groves, brothers Christopher and Mark Groves, and Cousin Melissa White. She also leaves behind her mother-in-law Arletta Hinkle-Shepherd (Craig), sister-in-laws Diana Lugar (Kermit), Deborah McPeek, Brenda Sterling (Eddie), brother-in-law Roger Hinkle (Deanna), and several nieces and nephews.
Nancy will be greatly missed by all of us. A celebration of her life will be held Monday, October 17 at 11 a.m. at Crosswalk Community Church, 77 N. Carpenter Road in Titusville. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of St. Francis, 1250 Grumman Place, Titusville 32780, or the American Cancer Society.
Please keep Nancy’s family in your thoughts and prayers and as always, thank you for all you do to make our agency one of the very best in the nation.
