Belton, TX — Wednesday proved to be a sad day for the Belton community and the rest of Central Texas as Bell County Sheriff’s Deputy Adam Davis died Wednesday morning from injuries sustained in a rollover accident earlier this month.
The 36-year old husband and father of one ten-year old child was taken off a respirator this morning at Baylor Scott & White in Temple. Nearly ten days after he crashed his car responding to a call of a man displaying a gun in public.
At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Sheriff Eddy Lange and fellow officers talked about the Adam Davis - the person.
Lange, who has been at the helm of the department for less than a year, choked up when describing his relationship with Davis and the way he used his badge.
“Adam enjoyed serving the public," explained Lange. "It wasn’t about writing tickets or putting people in jail. That’s not what he wanted to do. He wanted to serve his fellow citizens, and he did that very well. And he made the final sacrifice doing exactly that.”
A fundraiser benefit for the Davis family has been rescheduled, but if you would like to make a monetary donation to the family, please visit your local Extraco Bank.
The account is styled ‘Norman Hubbard for the benefit of Adam Davis’ and the account number is 20438917.
Funeral services are pending with Scanio Harper Funeral Home Temple.
