WPSO mourns the passing of Deputy Sgt. Zilliner

by Minden Press-Herald

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy Sgt. Tommy Lee Zilliner, 76, passed away Tuesday at a Shreveport hospital reportedly due to complications from a recent illness. 

“We have lost a dedicated deputy who touched many lives in a positive way, both the people he worked with in the department and in the public during his time with us,” Sheriff Jason Parker said. “Our condolences and prayers go to his daughter, his relatives and his many friends.”

Zilliner served 24 years with the Sheriff’s office both as a reserve and as a patrol deputy. He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and retired from the U.S. Postal Service. Funeral services are pending.

One of his co-workers said Tommy was “…a kind, gentle and considerate man who was a friend to all of us in the department. He considered his job as one of service to all the people. We surely will miss him.”
