BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A former Bossier Parish lawman died Monday evening after a lengthy illness.

Vol S. Dooley Jr., 87, served as Bossier Parish Sheriff from 1976 to 1988. He previously worked with the Louisiana State Police, Troop G and chief deputy to Sheriff Willie Waggonner.

He took over Waggonner's term when the sheriff died, won a special election for the office later in 1976 and continued to serve until he lost his re-election bid to Larry Deen, according to the BPSO.

After retiring from the BPSO, Dooley served as security director for the Caddo/Bossier Port Commission until he retired.

He is survived by his wife Ruth; daughter Patsy Netherland; sons Steve Dooley, Mike Dooley, Autry Brown, Dennis Brown and Ricky Brown. He was preceded in death by his son Bubba Dooley.

"I considered Vol a close friend and my thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time," said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington in a press release.

Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 14 at Cypress Baptist Church in Benton. A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Aug. 15 at Cypress Baptist, followed by burial at Hillcrest Cemetery in Haughton.
