LINDENWOOD — On May 2, 2020, Boone County Sheriff Deputy and Lindenwood resident Scott R. Bowers perished as a result of a cardiac event.

Scott was a great supporter of the Lynn-Scott-Rock Fire Protection District. He was an outstanding police officer, father, husband and friend to all that were fortunate enough to know him. In his honor, his family has provided a generous donation so that Lynn-Scott-Rock FPD may continue to acquire the newest and best equipment in hopes of helping others in their time of need.

The LSRFPD was able to secure two sets of DeWalt battery-operated tools, one set for each station — Lindenwood and Davis Junction. Each set includes a cut off tool, reciprocating saw, light tower, angle grinder and a fiber cement cutting shear used for cutting automotive glass along with additional batteries and saw blades. 

The family was present at the fire station on Oct. 23 to meet with several fire department members and dedicate the tools in Scott’s honor.

We all dearly miss Scott but know that his memory will live on, and the generosity provided by the family will help countless others for many years to come.
