Tracy Allen Gaines

Police Officer Tracy Gaines died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty while assigned as the SRO at Rockwall High School.

Officer Gaines was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Rockwall Police Department for 15 years. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

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.
