Doc was one of my best friends, an all around good guy, and we always had fun woking together. We worked together with the Highway Patrol and DPS Narcotics. Doc was a very dedicated Narcotics Agent and made many open and undercover cases. Doc was very dependable, fun to always be around, easy to work with, who would always have your back and support. Doc always spoke of his riding motorcycle trips, playing racketball, and hanging out with his good friends. He will by missed by all of us. My thoughts will always be with him and God Bless his family.
