Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs said of Chief Brody, “My prayers go out to the family and friends. Brody is gone too soon but God knows best and may he rest in peace.”

“It is a sad day in Vicksburg and our prayers go to his family during this most difficult time,” offered Fire Chief Craig Danczyk.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said, “What a courageous little boy! I believe Chief Brody taught us all a lesson about life. It is not the length of life that matters as much as the positive thing you do and the people you impact along the way.”

The Vicksburg Daily News had featured Chief Brody and done a couple of live reports from his home. The Vicksburg Fire Department, the Warren County Fire Department, the Vicksburg Police Department and the Warren County Sheriff’s Office along with agents from the State Police and Fire Marshal’s office have celebrated events with Chief Brody.

Vicksburg Police Chief Penny Jones commented, “The death of a child is generally unnatural and unfair, and generally very tragic. My condolences to the family. This young man made me proud to be a police officer, a Police Chief in general. It was something he inspired. He was a very enthusiastic young man and just so full of excitement. Once again my condolences to the family and if they ever need anything from the police department we will definitely be there for them.”

While reminiscing on the events and drive-by parades the department did with Chief Brody and how excited he was, Chief Jones concluded, “He’s probably talking about that with God right now.”

Arrangements are pending with Dillon Funeral Home.
