Leslie L. Graves, II

Police Officer Les Graves died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during a presumed exposure while on duty.

Officer Graves had served with the Perryton Police Department for two years. He is survived by his wife, six children, and eight siblings.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
