Friends of George Wilke also reached out to KCBD; they said everyone who knew him called him GB.
They said he graduated from Post High School in 1972 and became a part of the Close City Community where he worked as a cotton farmer.
A longtime friend described Wilke as the "nicest, kindest person" anyone would ever meet and "one of the best cotton farmers around."
He was described as a true friend and his death has left a void in the community.
Friends say GB's brother Robert, who goes by Robbie, also works as a cotton farmer.
Members of the community said they are devastated by this tragic news.
DPS says the investigation is still ongoing.
