ROSSVILLE, GA. (WRCB)-- Doyle "Bud" Wilkinson, the Rossville man allegedly abused by a caregiver, has died.

Wilkinson passed away Saturday at the age of 81.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, and after 20 years, retired from the Rossville Fire Department as assistant fire chief in 1993.

Wilkinson's funeral is set for 12:00 pm, Tuesday at the Parkway Baptist Temple.

Bud Wilkinson was rushed to the hospital in December, after his family says, they caught his caregiver sexually abusing him on camera.

Tom Scroggins was charged with aggravated sodomy and sexual battery.

The camera was set up after Wilkinson's children noticed bruising.
