Again I and others will have a chance to honor you at the beginning of the 5th DPS Memorial Bike Ride on May 15, 2013 when it begins in Rockport Texas, your home town and where your memorial stone was placed. We will remember you along with Richard Dale Berens who was killed in Rockport and Bill Davidson from Edna, Texas, my home for the last 42 years. What an honor to continue to remember you and others that gave their lives in the line of duty. I have carried you in my heart and memories for all these years.

Although it has been almost 43 years since you lost your life in the line of duty, I have never forgotten what a fine officer, man and friend you were. Your dedication as a Texas Highway Patrolman and your love for your family were known and respected by all who knew you. I feel very blessed to have been your friend.

Your prayer for God to keep me safe has certainly been fulfilled these many years since your death. Even though you gave your life at such a young age, you led a full and honorable one. Your dedication to law enforcement was respected by all. Everyone that knew and cared about you still remembers what wonderful loving person you were. I especially remember you as a loving husband and proud father to our baby daughter. You will always be in my heart and memories. Darleen Mills Wilkinson

To my father,
You are a hero that was taken from me too early in our lives. I have always been proud to know I had such an amazing father who devoted and gave his life to God, family and public service.
I forever keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Your daughter always,
