Shannon Bennett Fiance Opens up About Losing Him After the Sheriff's Deputy Died From Coronavirus
Jonathan Frey, the fiancé of a Florida Sheriff who recently died from the Coronavirus, has come out to give a statement on his late husband.
In a recent interview, Jonathan expressed his disbelief and heartbreak at learning of his fiancé's death. He also added that it has been quite difficult for him to cope with the reality in front of him.
Before he died, Shannon worked for the Broward County Sheriff's Office. The office announced last week that he had passed away from the coronavirus pandemic, following a two-week battle with the infection.
The announcement described Shannon as a proud member of Florida's gay community. The Sheriff's Office added that he was devoted to helping young people and maintaining safety and orderliness in the city.
However, additional information has come out about Shannon within that time. The 39-year-old had served in the Sheriff's Office for 12 years, and he was getting ready to tie the knot. Sadly, all of that is gone now, as he's passed away. Jonathan said of his deceased fiancé,
"I imagine this is going to be the hardest thing I ever have to deal with. It's coming in waves, and I'm taking it minute by minute. But, ultimately, I want Shannon's story to be told."
Shannon proposed last December, and they've been planning their wedding ever since. However, Shannon got infected with the virus early on and didn't go for a check-up until it was too late. In due time, his condition worsened, and he lost his life eventually.

Of course, other states have it pretty bad as well. Earlier this week, Jason Hargrove, a bus driver from Detroit, passed away. The driver had to continue working during the lockdown, and he recently posted a Facebook video where he worried about his safety.
In the video, Jason had explicitly pointed out that he once carried a passenger who continued to cough without covering her mouth.
