I’m in Disbelief and Deeply saddened that My Dear Friend and Retired Houston Metro Police Officer that Served Our Community in North Central for Many Years has Unfortunately PASSED AWAY…………. I have Had Much contact with Him recently Since he was Always a Target of Hackers and being Impersonated here on Facebook so He Reached out To me for Assistance, I’m So Glad I Spoke with him this past week Several times and Would occasionally Run into Him on a Weekly Basis. I Remember when I was in My Early teens and making Poor choices and Running with the Wrong Crowd, Dan had a Strong influence on Me and Gave me HOPE………….. Thank You Dan for ALL the GREAT Memories over the Years in Our Neighborhood and For Not giving Up on Me Sir, You WILL be GREATLY MISSED………. Thanks You for You’re SERVICE Sir, I SALUTE YOU!!!
