The City of Round Rock Municipal Courtroom was dedicated to the late Judge Dan R. McNery in a ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 12.
McNery served as Round Rock Municipal Judge for 37 years, until his death in 2019.
“Dan McNery was an outstanding person, an outstanding jurist and an outstanding family man,” Municipal Court Judge Alan McGraw said. “His integrity was off the charts, and he was admired and respected by the community and especially by the Court staff.”
McNery’s wife, daughters and extended family and friends, as well as current and former City Councilmembers and court staff, attended the ceremony.
“Judge McNery was quiet, he listened and he treated the public with great respect,” Mayor Craig Morgan said. “With this dedication, we’ll make sure he will always be known by our community.”
A plaque was unveiled at the ceremony, and it reads:
“He was known for his honesty, his wisdom, his strong faith in Jesus Christ, and his dedication to providing for the family he loved so much. Judge McNery called Round Rock home for 44 years, actively participating in the community not only as Judge, but also through his church and law practice. He lived his life in a way that positively impacted countless lives, and leaves a lasting legacy of service to the City of Round Rock.”
McNery died surrounded by his family on April 30, 2019, following a battle with cancer that lasted more than two years.
