"He was a giant of a man with a great big smile and made everyone feel welcome.”
Chesterfield County Sheriff Jay Brooks was referring to Cubie Shields, a sheriff’s deputy who died Sept. 21 after succumbing to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident two weeks prior.
Shields was ambassador to the courthouse, Brooks said. He screened visitors entering the Chesterfield County Courthouse.
“He did everything he could to make sure people felt comfortable,” Brooks said.
