(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— Drivers of Apple Bus Co. wanted to honor one of their own Tuesday. Several drivers waved and honked on their way past the home of Danny Perry's family.

Perry was a U.S. Army veteran and drove for the company for nine years. 

"I trained him whenever he started when he was originally starting with us," Bus driver Stanley Aspey said. "He meant a lot to everybody out there."

Perry had been sick for several months and returned home late last week. Aspey said that several drivers wanted to put together a parade for Perry, but he passed away on Saturday. 

The parade went from being an opportunity to say hello to their old friend to saying good-bye and honoring their late friend.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
