I am so very sorry to hear about Dan. I loved talking basketball with him and listening to his stories when visiting the shop before we moved. My thoughts and prayers are with Dixie, Danny, and the family.

Dan started cutting my hair 42 years ago and did so until a few years ago when I transitioned to his son Danny. It was always an interesting experience to listen to his stories and his hunting excursions in Georgia. He was a hard working man with a heart of gold. It is very sad that he has passed but I am certain that he is in a much better place. May the peace and the strength of the Lord Jesus Christ be with the family.
