HARRIS COUNTY, TX — The Harris County Sheriff's Office is mourning the loss of one of its own.

Sergeant Raymond Scholwinksi passed away after his battle with coronavirus. He was 70-years-old.

Sgt. Scholwinski started his service with the Harris County Sheriff's Office as a reserve deputy in 1979. He went on to serve with distinction as a full-time officer for 26 yars.

His most recent assignment was as the day-watch Contract Sergeant in District 2, where he was entrusted with serving as the district representative in most public speaking engagements.

Sgt. Scholwinski consistently served the resident of Harris County with honor, charm and distinction. The sheriff's office says he will be missed by his many friends and colleagues, all of whom were positively influenced by his commitment to service.

"Sgt. Scholwinski represented the best of the Harris County Sheriff's Office family," said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. "Whether he was on patrol, making a neighborhood association presentation, or in the field during hurricanes, tropical storms, and other disasters, Ray consistently delivered for the people of Harris County. We will miss our brother and we will honor his legacy of service."

Funeral arrangements for the sergeant are pending.
