Heartbreaking Sadness

The best I can do is copy and paste at the moment.  We are heartbroken.



 From Sheriff Bill Farmer, Sumter County Sheriff.


Today, it is with a heavy heart and deep sadness we announce the passing of Detention Sergeant William Prevatt due to complications from Covid-19.

William Prevatt was dedicated to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office starting his career in 1995, he retired as a Sergeant in 2013 and rejoined the Detention Center in 2019.

I would like to offer my condolences to Sergeant Prevatt’s family, his three children Jaycob, Kayla, Bryton.

We would also like to ask that you keep Sergeant Prevatt’s family and our Sumter County family in your thoughts and prayers during this unthinkable time.

Sgt. William Jackson Prevatt, 48, of Bushnell, Florida passed away in Ocala, Florida on September 2, 2021. He was born in Leesburg, Florida to Billy and Stella Prevatt. He was Christian in faith. William was employed as a Detention Deputy for the Sumter County Sheriff’s Department for over 21 years. He enjoyed driving and building race cars. Most of all he loved spending time with his family. He is survived by his sons: Bryton Prevatt of Bushnell, Florida; Jaycob Prevatt of Lake Panasoffkee, Florida; daughter: Kayla Prevatt (Garrett Allen) of Lake Panasoffkee, Florida; mother: Stella Prevatt of Bushnell, Florida; brother: Tony Prevatt (Bonnie) of Bushnell, Florida; nephews: Taylor Prevatt and Flynn Prevatt; and niece: Maycee Prevatt.
