Danny was a wonderful Christian and friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the times we were with him and Debbie at church functions. I think about how he backed Debbie with his questions and answers when she taught the Adult Sunday School Class . They were a wonderful team in class, husband and wife and the perfect picture of what a marriage should look like. He will be sorely missed but having the time of his live in heaven. Someday we will meet again.
Our love and prayers to Debbie and other family members.

I was sorry to hear about Danny. He put up a good fight. He was the best principal I ever worked for. He was also a very fine person. He will be missed.

I graduated in 1981 from Clay County High. One of my best memories of school was talking to Mr. Danny Brown in the hallway. We would talk about school, especially Driver's Education class, where Mr. Holcomb would tell him about me and my driving! He always had a smile on his face. I was so blessed to reconnect with him and Debbie and we had some great talks via Facebook. My sincere sympathy to Debbie and the whole family. He was a terrific person and most importanly, a man of God!! Joan Gibson - Moran

My thoughts and best wishes go out to Debbie and the rest of Danny's family. We spent 4 years together at CCHS and there was never a time Danny didn't smile and say something funny to me when he saw me. Even when i went back for my son, Jason's graduation and my daughter, Amy's graduation, he came up and shook my hand and said hello. He was a good man and a good friend and will be missed by all. Rest in peace Danny !
