The Wyers were married Friday night during a sunset ceremony in Hitchcock. Sergeant Wyers sent an email tendering his retirement from the force just two hours before the fatal crash.
"He was truly a very strong leadership figure within the Galveston Police Department," said Chief Phillip Morris with the Galveston Police Department. "Sergeant Wyers is going to be sadly miss in this organization."
