Southlake Sgt John Stokes memorial family funds

Donation protected
Sgt. John Stokes passed away suddenly, November 29, 2020 due to a non COVID medical episode. John leaves behind his wife Heidi and six adult children.

Sgt. Stokes had a long career in law enforcement, starting with Orange County California Sheriff’s department in 1986. In 1999, he began working with the Southlake Police Department, being promoted from officer to corporal to sergeant during his time with the department. Sgt. Stokes had mostly recently served as the School Resource Officer supervisor for Carroll ISD schools.  

During his time with Southlake police, he was honored with five commendations and was named the Southlake Police Department 2018 Supervisor of the Year. 

“John was a beloved member of our police family and will be sorely missed by his co-workers and the community,” said Police Chief James Brandon. “John had a long law enforcement career, but our School Resource Officer Program’s leadership is a great example of the heart that he had for protecting others. We extend our condolences to the Stokes family and offer our prayers during this difficult time.”

The Stokes family has suffered many obstacles over the last few years with Heidi being diagnosed with cancer in multiple areas of her body.

Any funds will go directly to the Stokes family.
