Mr. Head was on our team at DCS. He was a gentle giant. Mr. Head loved the Lord, his family, coworkers and the youth on his caseload. He would go out of his way to do for others. I was deeply saddened by the news of his passing but I know he is rejoicing and singing in heaven. Well done thy good and faithful servant. My sincere condolences to the Head family.
