He chose sea planes & flew the OS2U-3 Kingfisher & finally the SC-1 Sea Hawk which was shot into flight from the USS St. Paul, CA-73, landed in the sea for recovery & hoisted back to the ship. The St. Paul was in training to invade Japan until the capitulation & was along side the USS Missouri at the signing of the peace treaty.

BOSSIER CITY, LA - A memorial celebrating the life of Scott Pine will be held Saturday, May 31, 1:30pm at Airline Baptist Church, 4007 Airline Drive, Bossier City.

Scott, 34, was an Orange County, Florida Deputy Sheriff. He was born July 12, 1979 in Shreveport, Louisiana and graduated from Airline High School in 1997. He attended Louisiana Tech where he received his MBA. While there, he met and fell in love with Bridget Roseboom. A short time later they moved to the Orlando area. The couple soon married and, over the years, God blessed them with three beautiful children. After 8 years working in the banking industry, Scott, a man of deep faith, felt called to serve in law enforcement. He joined the Orange County Sheriff's Office in May of 2011 as a Deputy Sheriff on the midnight shift. When not at work, he was often in the park playing with his children or teaching Haley to ride her bike, all of which would be quickly posted to Facebook. He loved to travel and camp with his family. He enjoyed playing games, wrestling, reading, and nighttime prayers with his children. Scott was an avid LSU fan and was dedicated to God, family, friends and co-workers. He worked tirelessly to protect and serve the citizens of Orange County. He epitomized the inscription on his patrol vehicle, "Making A Difference". On February 11, 2014, Deputy Scott Pine was shot and killed while investigating reports of multiple car burglaries. He served his community with honor and dignity. Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife, Bridget Pine, children, Haley, Ryker and Maddox Pine; mother, Donna Pine Robinson and husband, Dr. James Robinson of Bossier City, LA; father, Robert Pine and wife, Terry of Oklahoma; grandmother, Dolores Gibbs; sister, Angela Mills and husband, Chad; sister, Lori Lucas; brother, Charlie Pine; sister-in-law, Denise Purdy and husband, Tyler; brother-in-law, Jeremy Roseboom and wife, Stephanie; mother-in-law, Frances Taylor and husband, Johnny; father-in-law, Jeff Roseboom and wife, Mary; nieces and nephews, Hayden and Parker Mills, Seth Pine, Josie, Zoe and Layla Roseboom and Ethan and Eli Purdy and many other family members.

Because of Scott's love for all things LSU, we are encouraging memorial attendees to wear their LSU gear or purple and gold to celebrate the life of our hero. In memory of Deputy Scott Pine, we ask you to thank a law enforcement officer. When they put on their badge and walk out the door, there is no guarantee they will return home to their family.
