3 “Duane Daniel Hunter Jr

  1. I graduated with Danny in 1971. We played on the SH football team, and were friends throughout our 4 years of high school. Dan somehow found me about 10 years ago, while I was still working at FSGC, and we talked by phone off and on for those years. I remember Dan as one of those middle of the road students, who had many friends but was never one to seek the limelight. He told me years ago about his health issues, but when we talked he never sounded defeated by them.
    Rest in Peace, Danny.
