Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff David Bosecker

RIP Dave, I will miss our patrols together out on Lake Cisco. You liked going out on the lake during the hot days and made quick work of guilting me into going out on the lake with you, just to watch me sweat. You even had a thermos full of "mud" on those hot days in the boat. I also enjoyed our plotting and scheming where we were going to fish when we could come out to the lake, off duty.

You made us all laugh at your joking personality, funny meems, and crazy texts, but you had the knack to turn on the professionalism in a heart beat and getting to work when work needed doing.

You are, and forever will be deeply missed by myself and all of your partners still here at the Cisco Police Department. It was a true honor and a privilege to get to know and work with you during that time. I hope you can see the earlier reflection from the family in Nebraska that you told me about over mud at the Flying J. They haven't forgotten you either.

Although our daily partnership may have ended abruptly, you will NEVER be forgotten. RIP 491!

To a great and crazy friend David. I remember when I first met you in Dallas county area. I remembered you had me climb up a tree to get an injured Hawk out of the tree. I climbed up the tree and a branch broke. Myself and the Hawk came down out of the tree and the fight was on. I yelled for you and you were in the street laughing . The other time we out hunting in Brownwood and got your truck stuck in the mud, you told me to get out and push. I’m will truly miss you brother. Love you, and My God have mercy on your soul.

Dave you were a great guy to work with and offered a lot of knowledge. We'd always crack up whenever you'd bring one in to me to book in at the jail. You brought me so many DWIs I gave you a nickname. I called you the Vampire. Your sense of humor always made a bad shift better. You will never be forgotten. Rest easy brother.

Sheriff Bosecker, you are a true hero. Our world is full of evil people, and yet, for many years, you dedicated your life to protecting others that they may be safe. Our Lord, who sees all and knows all, will reward you abundantly for your courage, dedication and selfless service. My heart breaks for the sorrow that your loved ones are experiencing. May God immerse you and them in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

Dave I have called you my friend for the past 8 years. You were a dedicated law man and a heck of a DWI hound. Your presence in the gym always made everyone smile. I will miss you dearly. Rest in peace brother.

Lost another good officer. Dave was a funny guy! He used to make us laugh all the time when he came out to Cedar Hill State Park. See you in Heaven!

"Somebody killed a policeman today,
And a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect who shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights,
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids
And spend alone many long nights.
The beat that he walked was a battlefield, too,
Just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
It happened in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now, his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call and gave us his all,
And a part of America died."
