    Doesn’t seem real. When I got the phone call first thing Saturday morning, I felt like someone punched me in the stomach. Such a great, funny guy who will be missed by everyone who knew him!

  6. chris on September 3rd, 2013 9:52 am

    Bryan was a great officer enjoyed working with him in Fdorm when we were on 3 to 11 he could always make a joke about anything. Going to miss you buddy

  7. Michelle on September 2nd, 2013 10:14 pm

    Remembering some fun times and many laughs. Prayers for family and dear friends left here. I know how difficult it is to lose a loved one and my heart goes out to you all. Bryan, may you rest peacefully in the arms of Jesus. <3

  8. Simplegirl on September 2nd, 2013 9:04 am

    Wonderful person who always had a huge smile! If Bryan couldn’t get you laughing no one could. I’ve been in Bryans life since childhood and can say he got his personality honestly. Sat many a Sundays around his grannies table and thrown many a footballs in the yard. He was crazy but a good soul. God made that boy for everyone elses enjoyment as you couldn’t be down around him! Roger and family raised him perfectly. Goofy and caring, funny and softhearted but strong and never took crap of anyone. He would be the first one to stand up for whats right and the first to tell you you were wrong. For those of us that knew him we know that God has him in his hands this very moment. @Prisoners Wife, If the only clue you have about this young man is coming from a convict you might want to hold your judgment. They don’t tend to be the most honest, or like 5-0 very much.

  12. SDK on September 1st, 2013 11:15 pm

  15. Fellow Ofc. on September 1st, 2013 8:09 pm

    Heartfelt condolences & prayersto Brian’s family. You raised a fine young man. He was a good officer, had other officers’ backs. He could always make you smile. He will remain in our hearts…..always.


  16. Chickenhwk on September 1st, 2013 7:58 pm

    Condolences from our family to yours and the extended family at Okaloosa C.I.

  17. Tweetygirl and DG on September 1st, 2013 7:34 pm

    We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Bryan for several years now, and have to say he could bring out the best in even the worst of circumstances. When things would have a lot of us in an uproar he would always manage to crack a joke to make us all laugh and forget what was going on. In our line of work that is such a hard trait to maintain, but he always did. As some of the older ones of our profession we watch these young ones grow and change in front of us everyday and it’s like you have another child you are watching develop into the man or woman they will become. We watched Bryan grow into a fun loving caring young man and a FINE OFFICER. We want his family to know that he was truly loved by his DOC family and will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers for Bryans Family and Friends

  18. Teresa Tipton on September 1st, 2013 6:21 pm

    By the grace of God my son James Tipton was spared from the accident he was in. Those phone calls are not easy to take.May God comfort and stenghten you during this awful time. James and Sarah will surely miss Bryan. Our prayers are being lifted up for the whole family.

  20. Big Dave on September 1st, 2013 10:38 am

    My friend Bryan, you will be truly missed. I wish I would have told you how much you meant to me when I saw you earlier that day. From now on I’m going to start telling the people I love how I feel about them because you don’t know when God will call them home. RIP my great friend

  21. Insp. R. Calamari on September 1st, 2013 9:41 am

    Micky and I send our condolences to the Hart Family and Century Correctional Family. Officer “Bryan” Hart was a fine officer with a “Great” personality. Bryan cared about his fellow officers and the inmates he supervised. I enjoyed my many conversations (always good) with Bryan while assigned as the Institutional Inspector at Century C.I. We have lost a brother in law enforcement, let us not forget the smiles and laughter he gave us all. Bryan will be truly missed.

    Bryan, I will see you at the “gate.”

  22. Joshua Bloodsworth on September 1st, 2013 9:09 am

    I was seriously just talking to my friend about life & catching up him. Something itold me to give him a hollar I haven’t seen him in years we grew up together. He told me about how much he missed home after living in Dakota. I’m gonna miss Brian, he was one of the funniest good hearted people I’ve ever met in my 28 years. I guess the lord must’ve needed him more than us. RIP. My prayers to the Hart family.

  23. CO on September 1st, 2013 8:50 am

    I did not have the pleasure of knowing Bryan but as a Correctional Officer, he was still family. He sounds like an amazing man! Prayers to his coworkers, family and friends!!

  24. Irene Daughtery on September 1st, 2013 8:16 am

    Roger, I am so sorry for your loss. May God help you through this. You are in my prayers.

  25. really on September 1st, 2013 5:26 am

    @prisoner’s wife…we hope your love as well get it right with god before his number is called. Hart was a good co that had our backs no matter what.. maybe you should pray for your husbands soul Hart was an awesome guy that will be missed at CCI!!!!

  26. Prisoner's Wife on August 31st, 2013 7:14 pm

    Praying for the family of this young man. I am glad to hear he was a good person to those who did not wear blue! My husband and our family will continue to pray for yours. Any loss is a sad one, I just pray this young man got right with the Lord BEFORE his number was called in!

  27. Brandon on August 31st, 2013 6:44 pm

    I have known Bryan since we were about five years old. We were amoung the group that grew up together in Molino. We’ve lost a lot of people from that group to include Trey and J.R. Gonna miss ya buddy. See ya again one day.

  28. Janet Morgan on August 31st, 2013 6:10 pm

    Roger, I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

  30. Jeremy Wells on August 31st, 2013 5:27 pm

    Our prayers go out to the Hart family, so sorry for your loss. He was a great guy and was always fun to relieve out of Fdorm. In a work place that can tick you off, he could always make you smile.

  31. Enough on August 31st, 2013 5:26 pm

    Ok enough about the seatbelt please as a former coworker of Bryan he was a great person and a Great Officer at Century C.I. To his family sorry to hear about your loss

  34. BWvr on August 31st, 2013 4:51 pm

    Bryan was a promising young man. I had the pleasure of working with him at Century Correctional Institution, where he was one of those Correctional Officers that we could count on, regardless of the circumstances, and he did his job well. This is a terrible loss to his family, his coworkers, and to this world we live in. Remember, it is not our place to pass judgement at this late stage. May he rest in the light.

  35. Hall Family on August 31st, 2013 4:23 pm

    Our hearts are so broken for the loss of OPIE, He most truly was one of a kind always joking. We will always remember the great times at the river when the kids were young and watching him grow into a wonderful man. Our hearts and thoughts are with the family. It is gonna be so sad at the football parties not seeing him there. We will always carry him in our hearts.

  36. why850 on August 31st, 2013 4:08 pm

    I’m in complete shock. We grew up together and worked at Century CI together. We just spoke 2 days ago at the grocery store. Its crazy how people come and go out of our lives and without notice. Make each moment count! Sorry for the families loss, especially James- Brian has left his mark with people and will be remembered. Thinking of you all.

  37. Scott on August 31st, 2013 4:06 pm

    R.I.P. my brother. Guard the gate till we get there.

  38. tina stewart on August 31st, 2013 3:53 pm

    To the family and friends of Brian Hart, I send you my deepest condolences. He was a wonderful person and had a way about him that just made you feel like you were blessed to have him as a friend. I am praying that God will help you get thru this and give you comfort in your time of sorrow. He may not be here in the physical word but his spirit lives on in all the people that had the pleasure to know him.

  39. commonsense on August 31st, 2013 3:47 pm

    To too cents worth. Sorry in your husband’s case they may have gotten it wrong. But I think in this case, I doubt a deceased person unbuckled himself before the emergency personnel arrived. Seat belts save lives.

  40. Ashley on August 31st, 2013 2:45 pm

    Rest in Peace Bryan! Going to miss that big ol smile. Praying for his Family and all his friends!!

    Everyone has their opinions, and you might not have meant to offend anyone. But why jump to conclusions? I personally do not believe in the saying, “Seatbelts save lives”….because my little cousin who would be 11 this year died in a car accident because the seat belt cut her throat, she bled out before first responders arrived. I wear my seat belt and encourage everyone too, but when God knows it your time, a seatbelt isn’t going to matter.

  41. JMorgan on August 31st, 2013 2:13 pm

    My Prayers go out for Bryan & the Hart Family… . I’m So Sorry for Your Loss.

  42. CDG on August 31st, 2013 1:52 pm

    I will miss you boo! glad I got to celebrate with ya in June and July! I will miss you calling control acting crazy on the phone until you make me hit you with my famous words….Bye Boy! wow cant believe that wont happen again. Praying for your family!!!!!!!

  43. Kimberly on August 31st, 2013 12:25 pm

    This is just not fair…..Brian you will never be forgotten and will always be missed.

  44. toocentsworth on August 31st, 2013 12:23 pm

    I am so sorry for this families loss. My heart and prayers go out to them. Also don’t believe everything you read in a state troopers report either. My husband was in a serious wreck several years ago and the report said he was not wearing a seatbelt but he was and had bruises on his pelvis to prove it. My husband was out of the vehicle when the troopers arrived. My husband never traveled anywhere without a seatbelt. So just because it was in the report does not make it so. Troopers are human and make mistakes too.

  45. Patriot on August 31st, 2013 12:04 pm

    To all that are offended by my comment that “seat belts save lives”, I am sorry that you are offended.
    I did not make any hurtful comments, I don’t intend to anger the family and friends, and I’m not passing judgement on anyone.

    To those that say “this is not the time” to make such comments, I ask…when IS the time? How many of our friends, neighbors and family members must die needlessly?

    Virtually everyone KNOWS that wearing a seatbelt is safer. Most also know that it’s the law. Generation after generation of kids are learning from their community that they don’t HAVE to wear one, because they see their friends and family not using them.

    You can demand seatbelt use for you and yours, or you can continue to mourn the loss of those that refuse to use them. Choose wisely.

  46. Mary on August 31st, 2013 11:57 am

    Brian was my son- in- law for a brief time,and we are so sad to hear this news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. he was loved and will be missed.

  47. Sanny on August 31st, 2013 11:46 am

    Gonna miss that big ole smile :)

  48. The Satterwhite Family!! on August 31st, 2013 11:39 am

    We are so sorry to hear the news about Bryan!! We have been blessed to have known such a great guy!! Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hart Family…We Love You OPIE!!!!!

  49. Gay Wildes on August 31st, 2013 11:29 am

    Prayers sent out for Bonnie, Roger, James and Roger Hart Sr.for the loss of their Son, Grandson and Brother. Prayers for the rest of the family in this time of great loss. Please show respect for the family and keep comments to comforting thoughts and prayers.

  50. Teresa Davidson on August 31st, 2013 11:14 am

    I am Brian cousin and I am asking for the fighting and etc./ to STOP. The family has enough to deal with without the public fighting about what happened. We do ask that you keep us in prayer during our time of loss. We are still dealing with the death of Timothy Dalton Wilson and now we have lost Brian.

    Thank you and God Bless

  51. cci on August 31st, 2013 10:51 am

    He will be missed at Century CI…

  52. William on August 31st, 2013 10:44 am

    UPDATE: Due to the discussion below, I checked the FHP report and added the following line to the story at 10:45 a.m —

    “According to the FHP, Hart was not wearing a seat belt.”

  53. Jay on August 31st, 2013 10:39 am

    @ Patriot
    Where did you get the idea that he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt? It doesn’t say that anywhere in this story. I love it when people have to put their two cents in, yknow, seatbelts don’t always save lives.

  54. Danielle on August 31st, 2013 10:34 am

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  55. Gay Wildes on August 31st, 2013 10:04 am

    My thoughts and prayer go out to the family of Brian Hart. May brian rest in the arms of our lord.

  56. friend on August 31st, 2013 9:50 am

    Excuse me but how do you know if he was wearing a seat belt or not? This is not the time to be making statements like that. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hart Family.

  57. Cindy on August 31st, 2013 9:48 am

    RIP our dear friend you will be greatly missed. Someday we will meet again in heaven

  58. So Sad on August 31st, 2013 9:45 am

    so sad…more and more people i went to school with being lost. prayers for the family..

  59. so sad on August 31st, 2013 9:44 am

    I’ve known Bryan my entire life, this is so sad and heart breaking. Prayers for his family in these tough times.

    Instead of throwing judging comments, how about say something nice. Especially if you don’t know the details. Nothing was mentioned about a seatbelt. Maybe he was wearing it and the impact caused the seatbelt to lock and that was the cause. Those things do happen. Your comments are hurtful to a hurting family! Just sayin’!

  60. Kim on August 31st, 2013 9:36 am

    I grew up with Bryan’s dad and my heart is breaking for the Hart family this morning. I am praying that the Lord will comfort them during this horrible loss and ease their pain in time. God Bless them

  61. ann on August 31st, 2013 9:09 am

    R.I.P we will miss you

  62. Patriot on August 31st, 2013 9:06 am

    Seatbelts save lives…but only if you use them.

  63. Samantha Nowling on August 31st, 2013 8:55 am

    Really awesome guy thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends I’m soo sorry for your loss
