There was a somber spell cast over Tuesday night's Cedar Key City Commissioners monthly meeting, as all folks attending bowed their heads for a moment of silence in memory of Roy Sills.
Sills, a former city commissioner and mayor in 2002, died unexpectedly over the weekend at his home off the Cedar Keys in rural Levy County.
Current Mayor Heath Davis said Sills was a close friend of his and was too emotional to talk much about his death.
"He was loved and he will be missed," he said.
Commissioner Sue Colson asked for the moment of silence.
