Warden Retirements

To find a specific officer, use CTRL F to open the search box

  • This website was started in 2004, and originally only had the names of the officers who retired after that year.
  • I have been able to fill in information from as far back as about 2000 from my research.
  • I recently obtained a list of all retired wardens, who were still living in 2012, from PERS.
  • With that info, I have been able to fill in some history of retirees all the way back to the mid 1970s. Since many of those retirees have already died, I don’t have any information yet as to when they retired.
  • My research continues. Please send me any corrections that you may have. Thanks.

If you know of a retirement that should be posted here or if you have a correction that should be made,
please Click on this link and email me and I will add/correct it immediately.
As you will see, I did include some wardens who transferred to other departments prior to retirement.
I did not want to leave them out of our history.

    Hi Jack
    First thanks for all the work that you do to keep all of us in touch. I don’t meant to be critical but I think I found a few errors regarding the retirement dates,etc.
    Jim Dixon ‘ 95 was a Captain not a Lt.
    Jim Holven ’86 was an Inspector not a Capt
    Henry Hoover ’85 was a Capt not a Lt
    Ned Dollahite ’83 was Chief not an Assistant Chief
    Artie Brown ’81 was Lt not a Warden
    Gil Berg ’80 was a Lt not a Warden
    Bernhardt Faist ’77 was Chief not Assistant Chief

      Bob: Not a problem. I will make those corrections. Most of that info came dirctly from the PERS database.

    Hello,

    My name is Ron Cooper. I am the son of Ken Cooper who retired as a lieutenant in 1980. I really appreciate all the effort making this website possible. I know it is a lot of work but the retirees and their family and friends enjoy it. I was hoping you could add my dad to the list of retirees and also if you could correct the spelling of his name under the photo of the graduating class of 1959. You have it as Ken Kooper instead of Cooper. If you are interested I have a fair amount of old photos that I would be happy to send to you. Just let me know the e-mail address and I will get them to you.

    Thank you again,

    Ron Cooper

      Ron: Thanks for sending me the correction. I have taken care of it on the photo as well as the retiree page. I have dropped you a note about the photos.

        Hi,
        This is probably a strange request, but I am desperate to find an answer.
        Approximately 2005 I was ” Channel Surfing “, and came across one of the most interesting stories about fish and game that I have ever seen.. It was filmed in documentary fashion about an office who worked ( largely in Colusa Ca., I believe ) He arrested several fishing poachers at one time, secured a rope around the necks of the poachers and marched them down the highway before a C.H.P. officer arrived to assist, even though at first the C.H.P. officer couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
        Another incident involved the officer using a scuba wet-suit, with mask and snorkel, going under water and grabbing the poachers fishing line, and pulled on it until he was looking at an astonished poacher in the eye.
        I enjoyed this film so much and have told so many people about it, including my uncle who retired from the D. F. G. in New Mexico.
        I would appreciate very much if you can direct me to a source that could help me secure the film.
        Thank you very much,
        Bill Helvin
