Williams laughed at Hermes.
“I can’t tell you how good everybody says this looks on me,” Williams said.
Right then, a woman walked up and said exactly that.
“See?” Williams said. “This is the big house," he exclaimed with his best bad boy grin.

Chief made changes to department
took over. He brought in new concepts and new thoughts that, in my opinion, kind of got us out of the old, traditional style of fire department.”
Wilson, Herber said, loved the fire service and poured everything into the New Braunfels Fire Department.
“It was everything to him. That was what he wanted to do and what he was there to do. He was dedicated, and he did a great job,” Herber said.
Wilson brought in new philosophies and new approaches, Herber said.
“He was instrumental in some of the changes that built the fire department we have today — he laid the foundation for changes with ideas that were not normally thought of in that era,” Herber said.
Wilson had a vision that was ahead of its time, I lerber said.
Not everyone in the department fully understood at first
where he was leading them.
“We had a hard time then accepting some of it because it was so different,” Herber said. “But we practice those things today.”
Engineer Dennis Williams, whose father, John, served as one of the NBFD’s first medics beginning in the late 1960s, noted Wilson hired him in 1985 — the first firefighter in New Braunfels’ modern era to follow in his father’s footsteps.
“He was very kind and he was well thought of,” Williams recalled. “He would go out of his way to help people. Chief Wilson was quiet-spoken and very methodical in his approach to things.”
Herber noted that while Wilson kept his office door open and was very approach-able, he had no problem making it clear he was the boss.
“You didn’t have to wonder who was in charge,” Herber recalled. “He let us know he was in charge.
“But at that time, I think we needed that. He laid the groundwork for the department you see today, which I think is head and shoulders above a lot of departments.”
