Hernando County fallen Marine comes home
On Thursday, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office as well as members of the honor guard and other personnel will be joining the family of a fallen soldier to escort Corporal Jonathan Taylor’s body through Brooksville and up into the County. Citrus County Sheriff’s Office Spokeswoman Heather Yates says the procession will follow a designated route, which will pass through downtown Inverness, then travel west on State Road 44, through Lecanto, and turn onto County Road 490 heading into Homosassa at around 2 p.m. Yates says though many people may want to join the procession, they are asking the public to consider standing along the designated routes as an alternative. Taylor’s body will then be taken to Wilder’s Funeral Home in Homosassa, where his body will remain until Saturday, March 5th.
