Joseph Antwine - Law Enforcement - South Carolina

Deputy Sheriff Joseph Antwine, age 23, died on November 29, 2013, at a local hospital in Florence, South Carolina. 

Joe was a member of the Florence County Sheriff's Office.  He had one year of service. 

One week earlier, Deputy Antwine and his partner had responded to backup another unit at a domestic violence call.  Their patrol car left the roadway as it rounded a curved portion of road in Johnsonville and struck a light pole.  Both officers were ejected from the vehicle.  Joseph was wearing his seatbelt but it broke as a result of the force of the impact.

Both of the deputies were transported to McLeod Hospital where they were treated for their injuries. Deputy Antwine's partner was released several days later, however Deputy Antwine remained in intensive care with serious injuries. He died one week later from those injuries.

Michael, Archangel, Patron Saint of
the Police, pray for Joseph
The Sheriff's Office is in mourning over the death of their young comrade.

Joseph is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members, who will forever miss him.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next. 

Pray that Joseph is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
