He was a brave man in the end who stood up against what he said was abuse of authority of Ray Hawks. He said he wasn't afraid of Hawks anymore once he found out he was dying from the cancer.
Dan told me that Hawks did hold grudges against a lot of people and did things that were really nasty and he believed wheren't legal.
Dan was livid when he found out that Hawks' was not wearing his protective bullet proof vest on the day of the shooting.
I'll miss him and his stories.
For once you said something that was true, Dan was a very good man and it is ashame that he died so young. You are again spreading malicious lies , you see I have known Dan for quite a few years and he had nothing but praises for Chief Hawks. Now crawl into your coffin and shut up!!!!

you sir saw a true person in dan donnellon he never spoke anything but truth. hawkes did/does hold grudges and correctly so not always legal ones, but hey he had the law on his side. why wear a vest wheb money can come your way, that's just my oopinion but...water under the bridge now. i respect dan more than most men in capac, he will be sadly missed, honesty doesnt come by every day in our town.

Yes I knew Dan well and he thought the world of Chief Hawks. I actually saw Dan at the hospital visiting the Chief when he was shot and I saw the Chief going in to the funeral home to pay his respects to Dan. their actions speak much louder than your lies Officer "wondering," or would you rather be called Capac/UnitedStates cousin?

Dan even asked how the Chief was doing at a council meeting. I wouldn't tell so many lies "Wondering" You have no idea what sort of relationship they may have had. You also will reap what you sow.

I don't think Chris is going to be too happy about this garbage being posted about her late husband.
