Patrick Dee Burks
9-25-1978 to 2-1-2017
Salutatorian for the Valley View High School class of '97, Patrick went on to get a BS in Criminal Justice from UNT and followed it by graduating from Grayson County Police Academy.
He developed a love for 911 dispatching and worked for the UNT Police Department before accepting a position with the Lewisville Police Department over 13 years ago. He expanded his 911 role to include a weekly published update on coming city events and supporting radio connections for the Lewisville Fire Department.
A much loved son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, and friend, he is survived by his parents Oscar and Barbara Burks of Valley View, Grandmother Pat Head of Spring Branch, brother and sister-in-law Brannon and Sarah Burks and nephew Janssen Burks of San Antonio, many aunts, uncles, cousins and his extended family of friends and colleagues in the world of Public Safety in Denton, County.
The actions and words of comfort from the Lewisville Police and Dispatch Departments have been a great solstice for Patrick's family.
