We have lost our beloved brother, our hero. He loved life and lived it to the fullest, despite the many hurdles. He was the kindest person; always had a smile; kisses to give and loved his hugs. He treated everyone with respect, grace and dignity. He was the most wonderful person that ever graced the face of this earth. He loved his nieces and nephews as his own. He enjoyed NASCAR, the County Fair, the Demo Derby, good movies, and country music.
Besides his parents and grandparents, he was predeceased by his brother Harold Dann, Aunt Mary (and Uncle Ed) Collins, Uncle Joseph Welch, Uncle James Milligan, Uncle Raymond (and Aunt Alice) Dann and nephew John Michael Whalen.
