Obituary

Mr. Brian Antonio McLeod “Police” of Tampa, Florida, passed away on Sunday, January 9, 2022.  Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022, 10:45 a.m. at The Center for Manifestation, 3102 E. Lake Ave., Tampa, FL 33610, with Pastor Donald Lott, officiating. MASKS RECOMMENDED. Interment to follow at Rest Haven Memorial Park Cemetery, 4615 E. Hanna Ave., Tampa, FL 33610.

Brian Antonio McLeod “Police” was born November 14, 1958, in Phantiland District, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, to Gerald McLeod and Phyllis Skeen. He attended Elementary School at Pepper All Age in St. Elizabeth, and High School at St. Paul of the Cross Cathedral in Mandeville. During his young adult years, Brian was employed for about two years as a Police Officer ranking District Constable, and as an Airport Fireman for about five years. He was also a licensed Electrician like his late father. 

Brian came to the United States in 1984, married to his now ex-wife of 28 years. He fathered three sons and two daughters. It was then that he also began making a name in the Jamaican community as a DJ and established his sound called “Supermix.” 

Brian’s talents were many. He was an extremely accomplished Owner/Operator Tractor Trailer Truck Driver bearing the business name “Supermix Transport LLC.” He was a beloved son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, community volunteer, notary, and friend who loved to entertain. He enjoyed playing dominoes and held a chair as a member of Hanging Tree and Brandon Domino clubs, socializing with friends, or being on the road working. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his wildly entertaining trucking stories, mixing music, his love for the ladies, his unfailing work ethic, his generous personality, his love for rum, hosting parties, and representing his country to the fullest. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he interacted with, as well as those he reached but never met.

Brian leaves to cherish his life memories, his loving mother, Phyllis Skeen; children, Brian McLeod, Jr., Brianna McLeod, Brinet McLeod, Byron McLeod and Anthony McLeod, along with their spouses and children; sister, Joy McLeod; brother, Richard Rutherford; nieces, Noelle Folkes and Ashley Lewis; and a host of cousins, uncles, aunts, and the loving Jamaican community.
