In Memoriam

Officer John L. Libby II

June 26, 1971-May 27, 2013

Originally from Freehold, New Jersey, John started his law enforcement career with the Jackson Township Police Deaprtment, Jackson, New Jersey in 2001.  In 2007, John made the difficult decision and left home to start a new career with the McKinney PD.  John started with the department on October 8, 2007.  John was a hardworking and selfless patrol officer who was always willing to help a friend and fellow co-worker.  John always had the ability to crack a joke and make people smile.  He was a warm and compassionate friend who always said hello regardless of who you were.  Prior to John's untimely death in an off-duty motorcycle accident, he had successfully completed the National School Resource Officer course and was being assigned to the School Resource Officer unit at the end of the summer.  This was a position he was very much looking forward to.

Besides being a dedicated officer, he was a devout father and husband.  He is survived by his wife Jennifer, daughter Adrianna, and son Brandon.

John was also a founding member of the McKinney Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 107 and served as the Sergeant at Arms.

John will forever be missed but will never be forgotten.

“Wojo” will be saddly missed by all members of the department.  He was always a man that could be counted on no matter what the issue whether it be personal or professional.
