Reflections for Deputy Jailer Robert T. Daniel

Mr. Daniel, May the Lord grant you eternal rest and when they ask what a hero looks like, they’ll mention your name and act you took. Acts 20:35

I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'

Ret. Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Jes
U.S. Border Payrol

On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Corrections Officer Robert Daniel and the extended law enforcement family of the Graves County Jail, Kentucky.

End of Watch Friday, December 10, 2021.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
