Senator Baxley Makes Statement Regarding the Passing of Country Music Legend Mel Tillis

Ocala —

North Central Florida will greatly miss one of our beloved citizens who has been a lifelong hero to many of us. He never forgot his rural Florida roots as he moved to the worldwide stage and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Always a humble encourager to anyone facing a challenge, we were blessed to have him and his influence here in our area during his final years.

We share our condolences with his family and give thanks for his special touch to our lives.
