Sargeant Jim Fielding was a 36 year Veteran of the Lubbock Police Department, and probably the greatest Texas Tech fan Abner and Karin have ever known. He had been in an out of the hospital for months. Saturday, he was tailgating in his hospital room, tracking the plays and cheering his Red Raiders to victory over Texas. He died an hour after the game.
A memorial is planned for "Sarge" at St. Luke's Friday at 2:00.
