During my 13 year career with the HCSO, I got to know Danny Ray Sr, very well while working in the Traffic Unit. To hear him talk about Danny Jr, and the accomplishments he made at such a young age, you can tell he was always proud. Danny Jr, picture forever hangs in the lobby (Next to Jessie Tanner's), to help keep his memory alive, and not forgotten.
