Christopher Shane Simpkins

Border Patrol Agent Shane Simpkins died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty while assigned to the Lake Charles Border Patrol Station in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Border Patrol Agent Simpkins was an Alabama National Guard veteran and had served with the United States Border Patrol for 24 years. He is survived by his wife, daughter, father, mother, and 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.
