$2,700 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 32 people in 9 days
Deputy Sheriff David Wade was shot and killed at approximately 8:30 am as he attempted to serve an eviction notice at a residence near the intersection of CR 66 and Midwest Boulevard, outside of Mulhall, Oklahoma.

He encountered three subjects at the residence and began checking their identifications. One of the subjects opened fire on Deputy Wade, striking him multiple times. The man then stole Deputy Wade's patrol truck and fled the scene. He then abandoned the vehicle and carjacked a citizen in a nearby town. The subject was taken into custody several hours later.

Deputy Wade was able to radio for backup after he was shot. He was flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City where he passed away several hours later while in surgery.

Deputy Wade was a U.S. Army veteran. He is survived by his wife and three children.

What a beautiful memorial for brother, ex-partner, and friend Logan Country Deputy Dave, (David) Wade. Thank you for all the many wonderful memories brother. My heart is still breaking, as many people I know feel the same. There were so many Troopers, Deputies, Police Officers, Security Guards, Active & nonactive military there!! The Honor guard & Colorguard did a wonderful job! I also wish to thank all the citizens that showed their respect along the highways, along side of the streets, and on the bridges. Chief Veronica Thomas and Sheriff Damon Devereaux did a wonderful job speaking!! I got to see many brother and sisters in blue that I haven't seen in 6 1/2–7 years, unfortunately it was under these sad, sad circumstances. I have been asked to leave up the memorial, (GoFundMe) until the May, 2nd at 2300 hours. As many County workers, as myself don't get paid but once a month. I am proud to say, "WE MEET OUR GOAL OF $2,500, & The donations continue to grow". All donations will be given to his wife, Emily and his three children. Please remember, even though we hit our goal you can still donate!! There is so many more words I could say. I believe the words I have in my heart, are the words you feel in yours! Sheriff Damon Devereaux said it best. " No matter what department/ agency we come from we all need to watch each other's back. No matter what side patch we wear on our shoulder, or what agency were from, we must come together as one"!! Officers from all over the State of Oklahoma was there, and many from outside of Oklahoma came to give Dave a beautiful send off!! Thank You!!
Dave absolutely loved his wife with all his heart, and his three children. He will be missed dearly !! thank you all for the donations and for the prayers .

David will be greatly missed. I have had a few people ask me since I shared what the donations go for? Are they for funeral costs? Do they go to his boys? The story doesn't give those details.
