ORANGE PARK – Law enforcement and the Clay County Community, particularly Green Cove Springs, paid their respects to Derek Asdot Wednesday morning before he was laid to rest. The Chief of Police in Green Cove Springs died Sept. 28 after spending 37 days in the hospital battling COVID-19. Asdot’s funeral was at the Church of Latter-Day Saints on Blanding Boulevard Wednesday morning. The procession to the Jacksonville National Cemetery included officials from law enforcement agencies throughout Florida. Asdot joined the GCS Police Department in 2002 and was promoted to Chief in 2017. Residents have showered his patrol car with flowers, cards and balloons at police headquarters. Asdot, who was 49, was buried following a graveside service that was open to the public. Asdot, the third law enforcement officer in Clay County to die from the coronavirus, is survived by his wife, Angie, and his son Jake and daughter Ashley.
