Crime Fighter
    (August 23, 1920-August 29, 2019)
    Resides in Garland, Texas
    Dallas homicide detective handcuffed to Lee Harvey Oswald when he was assassinated by Jack Ruby (November 24, 1963)
    Known in the famous photo of the assassination as the 'man in the white suit' (see pic)
    Joking with Oswald before the assassination, he said, 'Lee, if anybody shoots at you, I hope they're as good a shot as you are.'
    Though handcuffed to him, he failed to keep Oswald alive so he could stand trial for the assassination of JFK.
    He does not allow for any conclusion other than Oswald acting alone during the JFK assassination.
    He was more pissed at Oswald for killing fellow Dallas cop J.D. Tippit than JFK.
    After the famed photo, all interviewers wanted to discuss with him was his thoughts on the shooting, ad nauseam.
    As a sailor in the U.S. Navy, he was on the deck of the USS Whitney when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
    Though he was not injured, he felt frustrated, angry and helpless that he could not do anything to prevent the carnage.
    The bombing, along with the Oswald assassination, saw him involved in two of the most famous Sundays in U.S. history.
    He was an honored and decorated Dallas detective before retiring.
    He has attended several educational seminars on the JFK assassination, and in 2006 met Oswald's brother Robert, describing him as a 'pleasant, friendly, common-sense individual.'
    He donated his famed suit and Stetson hat to the Sixth Floor Museum at the former school book depository in Dallas.
    He has been spoofed on both 'The Simpsons' and 'Family Guy.'
