(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.
