Sgt . Earl Wilkins was a gentleman, a friend, and a fine member of the Law enforcement Family. I spent several years working with him as a Radio Tech, And as a fellow Scout Master with the troop , sponsored by the PPD. It was with much sorrow that I had to respond that night to recover what was left. My thoughts are with you as they are for the PPD. and those who have served with distinction.
