Wilkerson dedicated 19 years of his life to the service of others through law enforcement and during that time touched the hearts of many in our community. Wilkerson was a loving father, grandfather, and a beloved friend. He continued his service to others as a member of the Warthogs Motorcycle Club where he assisted in raising money for many community improvements and charities, including the Brookville Police Department K9 program.
He had a big heart, and his presence alone would brighten any room he entered. Wilkerson had a way of keeping a smile on the faces of his coworkers even during the most difficult times.
