The Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA), one of the largest and most successful state law-enforcement associations in the nation, is pleased to announce that it has named Harry Weaver as Honorary Sheriff. Mr. Weaver passed away on June 23, 2019, at his home surrounded by his family. With more than 30 years of service, Mr. Weaver retired as president of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. Mr. Weaver’s family accepted this honor Tuesday night at the FSA Winter Conference banquet in Wesley Chapel.  

“Mr. Weaver brought expertise, passion and heart to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches to his more than 30-year-tenture,” said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. “We are proud to honor his dedication to the Youth Ranches, to the sheriffs of Florida, and to thousands of children whose lives he impacted.” 

Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches President Bill Frye said, “Mr. Weaver’s philosophy was if you showed a child love and respect, they would give it right back to you. I am grateful that the Florida Sheriffs Association is recognizing Mr. Weaver because it is well deserved. I believe Mr. Weaver is smiling down right now, and his family is smiling with him.” 

By being such a positive force within FSA, Mr. Weaver has earned nothing short of this honorary title. To learn more about Harry Weaver, watch this tribute:
