Fallen Border Patrol Agent Tyler Robledo Honored at Carrizo Springs Memorial

A celebration of life ceremony honoring U.S. Border Patrol Agent Tyler Robledo was held on Sept. 12, in Carrizo Springs, on the fifth anniversary of his death.

“I am happy that the family is here to help us honor Tyler,” said Vanessa McKeon, Patrol Agent in Charge of the Carrizo Springs Station.

Maverick and Dimmitt counties have voted to rename Farm to Market Road 2644 as “Border Patrol Agent Tyler R. Robledo Memorial Highway” pending final Texas Department of Transportation approval.  The two-mile section of FM 2644 where Agent Robledo perished was also adopted through the Adopt-a-Highway program in memory of Agent Robledo.

The ceremony included a release of white balloons, with the words “forever in our hearts”. The Robledo family and Border Patrol representatives then visited the memorial site, where they talked and shared memorable stories.
