The father of a Vanden High student-athlete who was shot and killed in April asked the Fairfield council this week for help in honoring Daniel Hughes’ memory.
“I want to honor his legacy and dreams, and he did have big dreams,” Dejon Hughes said about his son.
Daniel Hughes was shot on Easter Sunday and died 14 days later on April 18. He was 17 years old.
His father described his son, who was a junior at Vanden High at the time of his death, as someone who was involved in the community.
