    DPS will name each of the six vessels in honor of a fallen trooper. The one unveiled Thursday salutes Jerry Don Davis, who was shot and killed in the line of duty in Lubbock County on Oct. 5, 1980, after stopping a subject for a traffic violation. Davis had been a trooper less than 20 months and was stationed at Slaton.

    Davis’ mother Joyce and other family members took a ceremonial ride around Decker Lake aboard the “J.D. Davis.”

    “J.D.’s mother was completely thrilled about it. She just chokes up every time she starts to talk about it at all,” said Michael Davis, cousin of the slain trooper. “This is a great honor for him. And I know he’s looking down. He’s proud.”
