Jerry and Barb, together with Buck Baynes
and your dad I drank more beer, had more
intelligent and enjoyable conversation,
and more laughs than any others in my life. He was a delightful man. For me his passing marks the end of an era. May
God comfort you and your families at this
difficult time.

Barbara and family,
Our hearts break for all of you as we understand the pain of losing your Dad, particularly during the Christmas season. May you be comforted by the wonderful memories of your dear Dad and sustained by the love and prayers of friends. With love and sympathy, Maureen and Bill Robey

Condolences and prayers are with the family of Mr. Dashner. His daughter, Barbara, had many great stories to tell of her father and I enjoyed every one of them.

Dear Barbara,
You have always been the most devoted of daughters and I'm sure your father knew how much you loved him and appreciated all that you did for him. I'm so sorry for your loss and hope that your father is now at peace and your family can look back at his life and admire all that he accomplished.

As I had only met Mr. Dashner a handful of times, I knew him through his wonderful daughter Barbara. I know that he now rests in peace and will be truly missed by Barb and her entire family. Prayers coming your way from the Jeddry family. Pam, John, Megan and Sean
