Danny Carroll Bohannon

September 17, 1952March 4, 2012

The Creator claimed the spirit of Danny Carroll Bohannon, 59, from his Iowa Park home on Sunday, March 4, 2012. A massive heart attack brought down the big heart of this giant of a man. Danny was born September 17, 1952, to Bobbie Eugene and Martha Anne White Bohannon in Wichita Falls. After graduating in 1971 from Cooper High School in Abilene, he served one tour in Germany in Army intelligence, reaching the rank of SP5. On May 12, 1978, Danny married Beverly Diann Klinkerman and resided with his family in Iowa Park for 33 years. Together they raised three sons. A master machinist, he owned and operated B&P Machine Shop in Wichita Falls, where he not only made his living, but also visited with and encouraged dozens of family and friends on a daily basis. Self-taught since the age of fourteen, Danny was an accomplished lead guitarist and a budding steel guitar player who played with numerous local country and gospel bands over the years. At the time of his death, he was playing in Southern Rain, the Lone Star Troubadours and Riding for the Brand at the Cowboy Gathering at Bunger, TX. Although Danny ministered as musician, greeter and announcer at the Cowboy Church, he was proud of his lifelong membership in the Church of God based in Cleveland, TN. He is survived by his wife; sons Brian of Wichita Falls and Clay Parker and fiancé Casey Jones and Wes and wife Tonya all of Iowa Park; two grandsons Logan and Brady Bohannon; father and wife Joyce and brother Steve and wife Sherri of Lubbock; three sisters Anne Compton of Bloomberg, Linda Oakley of Nashville TN, and Janice Floyd of Lubbock; three #1 brothers-in-law Mark Compton, John Oakley, and Chad Floyd; and numerous devoted aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Danny was preceded in death by his mother and by Barbara Ann Northcutt Bohannon, his loving mother after Martha’s death. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 6, at 10 AM at the Texoma Cowboy Church, Hwy 281, Wichita Falls, with Pastor Jamey Burrus of Cowboy Gathering officiating. Burial will be at Clara Cemetery, 9 miles north of Iowa Park on FM 1813. Instead of sending flowers, PLEASE bring one long-stemmed flower to lay on the casket and send donations to RATHGEBER HOUSE or HOSPICE OF WICHITA FALLS as a last tribute to this generous man.

The Bohannon family has been so special to me for many, many years. Since Danny's illness I have thought over the pleasant memories we have shared and have been blessed by the remembrances.

As with everyone who ever heard Danny play, I loved his music.

God be with you and comfort you through this difficult time.

Beverly and family, I feel blessed to have have met and known Danny these last 15 years. It was clear immediately that he was a true and honest man, loyal friend, and strong Christian. Yes he has been a giant of a man, a Gentle Giant. Everyone not only loved Danny, but respected him greatly, including me. He was always one of the first in line to help a person, without having to be asked. You could always be sure that what he told you was the unbiased truth. Danny will be greatly missed by many people here on this earth, but I believe he has been called by our Lord and Savior for a much more important job. Also I know he is healthy and strong again, and is with his loved ones who were there waiting for him. Beverly my prayers are with you and your family in this time of sorrow and loss, until you will see him again.

Danny, I will always remember our times together. The songs we played; the music we made; seems we never tired of those songs. I know God has a Golden Telecaster with golden strings waiting for you in heaven and I can't wait to join the band. Thank you for all the wonderful memories; I will miss you my friend.

Beverly, my heart is with you, may God comfort you in your time of loss. Danny was, as it says, a "giant of a man" and will be missed by so many friends and family.

Beverly, I am so sorry for your loss. I never met Danny but I know he was a good husband to you and that makes him okay in my book. You will be in my thoughts and Prayers. Darrell (Dick) Ryan

Beverly and Family,
My life has been better for knowing Danny as a friend and as a fellow believer. I came to know Danny through my brother, Bill Roberson, while they were performing in various arenas. I came to think of Danny as a brother and I could always count on his greetings of "Sis". I shall miss that.
Danny was so good to help raise scholarship funds in Ryan, OK, money for the nutrition program for the elderly in Ryan and medical benefits when the occassion arose. He did this not for recognition but because of his Christian love for others and I'm truly thankful for that. You didn't have to know Danny more than a few minutes to be aware of his deep belief in our Creator and Savior.
May God comfort and bless each of you. You remain in my prayers.
Linda "Sis" Griffin and husband Bill Griffin. Ryan, OK.
