Today I read the story of Deputy Sheriff Dell Walker Bowers Jr. RIP Brother. I had heard the story from his son Terry Don Bowers who was 7 years old at the time of Deputy Bowers passing. Terry Bowers worked for the Texas Department of Public Safety and after a long and distinguished career, Terry retired as a Captain with DPS. On July 2, 2020 Captain Bowers passed away in Edinburg, Texas and will be laid to rest on 7/7/2020 at Valley Veterans cemetery. Both Deputy Sheriff Dell Walker Bowers and Captain Terry Bowers will always be remembered and both will finally be reunited. God Bless.
