Deputy Sheriff Dale Stiles succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained six months earlier while responding to a domestic dispute at 9 pm.

Deputy Stiles was attacked while he was unloading a rifle from the subject's car. The subject took his service revolver during the scuffle and pointed it at his head. He was about to shoot when the subject's wife convinced the subject not to shoot him in the head. Instead, he shot him in the stomach. Deputy Stiles continued to have complications from the gunshot wound and died after undergoing another surgery.

Deputy Stiles was a United States Army veteran and served with the Pecos County Sheriff's Department for over nine years. He is survived by a son, two daughters, parents, and a grandchild.

He is buried at the Brush Creek Cemetary, Brush Creek, Grant County, Arkansas.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 24th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
