PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- On his back, Danroy Henry Jr. had a tattoo of angel wings. He spent the last hour of his life dancing and socializing in a restaurant filled with sports paraphernalia and Halloween decorations like wispy ghosts and plastic skulls.
Henry, a cornerback for Pace University's football team, was known as "D.J.'' He would have celebrated his 21st birthday Friday preparing for Saturday's Division II home game against New Haven.
Instead, Henry's teammates, friends and family will gather in Boston for a memorial service because Henry died on Oct. 17 behind the wheel of his car with three police bullets in his body. It happened hours after a homecoming game against Stonehill in suburban Westchester County north of New York City.
