I didn’t know Danny personally, but he always waved as I drove out of the parking lot behind the CSCD building. He looked like he was a very kind man and had a look of peace to him. I wish I had gotten to know him. Prayers for comfort during this time of mourning and remembrance.
Danny was very kind to me and always smiled when he saw me as well as stopping to say hello. He was highly thought of by many at CPS where we worked. I know that he is in a good place now with God and not having any pain. I was very proud to have known him.
I had the pleasure of working with Danny for many years at the Probation Office in Sherman. He was always kind and fun to be around. He will missed immensely. Prayers for the family.
Danny was a great friend and confidant. He will be missed by his family and friends. He was always willing to help others whenever they needed his assistance. He had a big heart and a great laugh.
My Danny Boy!! You were the kindest and most patient person!! You always knew what to say. I’m going to miss you terribly. Love you!
I met Danny when I was at one of the lowest points in my life. With his help and guidance, I was able to get back on track and prioritize the things in life that I needed to. This August, I’ll have 6 years of sobriety, and Mr. Roberts was there to see me through the start of my journey. My prayers and condolences to all of his family and coworkers that I know are going to miss him dearly.
Danny and I worked together for CPS during my formative years. I will never forget how his presence made my time there more pleasant and meaningful. We shared many laughs outside of work and I was always glad to be around him. I’m so thankful our paths crossed. My life is better for knowing him.
I had the pleasure of working many cases with Danny when he worked for CPS. He went above and beyond for the kids. He was a great guy and a good friend. May he rest in peace.
