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.

Sgt. Oliver was an amazing man of faith, a family man, and a man who set the example for all of us to follow. His captivating personality made it so easy to approach him and engage in conversation with him. This attribute help build relationships within the community he served through positive police contacts with the residents.

I am so thankful that I had the privilege and opportunity to know and work with Sgt. Oliver over the past 12 years. I will truly miss his smile, his laugh, day to day conversations and hearing him call out my nickname when he saw me.

A great man gone too soon. Rest easy Sarge, we will take it from here. I love you and I will miss you greatly.

On behalf of the Ohio Attorney Generals Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Sergeant Dennis R. Oliver, Jr. and the extended law enforcement family of the Highland Village Police Department, Texas.

End of Watch Friday, October 2, 2020.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
