McGee and DC shown together in historical photo
NOV 19, 2015

"A society is ultimately judged by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members."

By Perry Williams 

In the 1970's McGee (he was always known only as McGee back then) was inseparable from his constant companion DC Townsend. They probably spent more time at Greer High School than I did and McGee was and still is a sports team’s (any sports team) biggest fan.

McGee has an uncanny ability to show up anytime and almost every time that something is going on. He has attended more grand openings and ribbon cuttings than anyone that I know.

Forty years ago Danny Gambrell rushed into burning buildings with a wet cloth covering his nose and mouth, while he listened for sounds of life. His eyes burned from the fire's smoke.

It was how his father, Ralph, and uncle, Jack, taught him. It was a way of life for the Gambrell men as volunteer firemen with the Greer Fire Department for an aggregate of 176 years. "You follow by example what you wanted to do," Danny said. "Your pay was people telling you 'thank you.'"

Besides being grateful for my family . . . especially my late mother, Bobbie Wood Hawkins,  I am grateful for good health.
