Gomer was born on Sept. 11, 1950, the youngest son of Sullivan and Lena Marie Wilkerson. He graduated from Coronado High School and attended Texas Tech University before becoming a Lubbock Police Officer. Gomer served the people of Lubbock for 34 years, retiring in 2006. He truly loved his profession, never desiring to do anything else. He just wanted to be known as "a good cop". He married Margaret Ann Levasseur on May 11, 1977 and she died on May 26, 2001.
