Obituary

Rodney Hooker began his career in the security industry in 1987, working as an alarm installer for a UL listed Alarm Company in the Dallas area.
He started his Central Station career in early 1988 working for one of the largest central stations in the U.S. at the time. He managed the construction of two other branch central stations in Texas and helped in the first live networking of three active redundant UL Listed centrals.
As president of the Dallas County Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NTAA), he led the fight to allow a special conversion period for the alarm industry to convert from 7-digit to 10-digit dialing plan. In the late 80s and early 90s, he actively worked on the RBOC issue in Washington DC.

He has been an active member of all of the local associations in Texas for the last 20 years and has held the office of President for not only the North Texas Alarm Association, but also for the TBFAA on two separate occasions. He has been the Legislative Chair for the TBFAA for over 12 years at different times.
Rodney's accomplishments include helping to form the TBFAA chapters in the Rio Grande Valley and Central Texas.

Rodney has served TBFAA as Vice President and Legislative Chair for 6 years, 2 years as President and 8 years as board member. Rodney also helped to form the Gulf Coast Alarm Association that ultimately merged to become the Houston Gulf Coast Alarm Association. He has also served on the alarm management committee for the Texas Chief of Police Association. He worked with the PSB to allow CEU credits for attendance at qualified membership meetings.

As the TBFAA Legislative Chair and Vice President, Rodney's exceptional efforts representing TBFAA in Austin have earned him awards and letters of appreciation from the Department of Public Safety. Rodney has worked tirelessly with the Private Security Bureau to deal with unlicensed alarm sales in Texas. Rodney received the 2009 TBFAA Person of the Year honor at the 2009 TBFAA annual convention and trade show on October 8, 2009 in San Antonio, TX. He was the President of Dispatch Center LTD from September 2004 to April 2018.

He is survived by his wife Sue Ellen Hooker, step-sons Daniel and his wife Tracy Glenney and Patrick and his wife Jackie Glenney, his step-grandchildren Robert, Morgan, Michael, Aidan and Lorna. He is also survived by his brother Ray Hooker, best friend Stan Matcek and his two sons, Aaron and Nathan, and a host of friends.
