Speedy was an honorable man of many titles. He was a loving husband and father, a beloved son and brother, and a distinguished friend and officer at Mission PD. At work, he enjoyed teaching rookies, mentoring colleagues, and serving his community. At home, he enjoyed spending time with his family, BBQing, and emphatically cheering on the Dallas Cowboys.
When Speedy wasn’t inside the classroom leading a training course or out and about patrolling the community, you could see him on A&E’s Live PD and National Geographic’s Border Wars TV shows. That’s right, our very own hometown hero was also a true action hero on TV.
