Dana Lee Barnes
October 17, 2020
I'm so sorry to hear his passing. As a neighbor on Tralan Drive, he used to come over for a chat, played cards and whatnot. He was a funny but extremely kind man with a charming smile. A year later after my mom's death in 2007, he was really sad with brimming tears when he learned I was moving out to start a different path in life after many years of growing up with so endless loving memories on Tralan Drive, still I haven't forgotten everyone. Whenever I wanted to visit Greensburg, I'd pull up on Tralan Drive and stop by at his stepmother's house to see him. His face would light up. He will not be forgotten. Tralan Drive is a very wonderful place to live, especially with wonderful neighbors like Dana, his stepmother/father and family. Godspeed!
