Danny Duggan remembered for his ‘big heart’

Danny Duggan

New on The Christian Chronicle’s website is this report by freelance writer Jim Miller:

To 11-year-old Jacob Compton, who has lived at the Cherokee Home for Children in Cherokee, Texas, for about a year, Danny Duggan was like a grandpa.
“My favorite memory is going down a water slide with him at a back-to-school bash. We ran and jumped and splashed in the water,” Compton said. “He always cared for us. He was there when we needed to talk to him.”
Duggan, the home’s executive director, died Jan. 18 after suffering head injuries during a basketball game six days earlier.
The 59-year-old director was playing basketball with students from Texas A&M University’s Aggies for Christ when several players collided, knocking Duggan to the floor. The impact fractured Duggan’s skull. He never regained consciousness.
After unsuccessful brain surgery at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Duggan was taken off life support on Jan. 18 and died three minutes later.
