  • To the Family of Dann Beaver:
    I know all too well that Dann’s passing will leave a huge void in all of your hearts.
    Having first known Dann through Faith Lutheran Church, and then to be a fellow Classmate, I also feel that same void. I can only say that our empty hearts can, and should always, be filled with the many happy memories he has left. On a somewhat personal note, I can guarantee that Dann and Gary are already exchanging “high fives”, and both are now able to REST IN PEACE with no more pain.
    Love to the Family, and my heartfelt condolences. Marcia (Commins) Kelly

  • My interaction with Danny was experienced in our teen years. I remember Danny as a part of the animal brothers Wolfe & Beaver. They had a little red ford falcon that they rand the crap out of it.When the thing had taken a turn for the worst they took to a field put a brick on the accelerator and watched it pass to car heaven.We never had a dull moment in those days.Danny Rest in peace. P.S if you run into Bob in heaven maybe he will take you a ride in the 68 Z28 he’s driving.

  • Sitting on my parents patio, you’d hear the soft hum of the golf cart easing through the tree line. Dann would roll down the hill, Annie by his side, and we would all sit and chat about life, kids, the weather. (Annie would eventually hop down and chase our two, much larger dogs, around the yard and give us all a good laugh.) Dann had a good laugh and a strong love for life and his family. It is a hard loss for us, but an easy gain for heaven. I look forward to seeing Dann again someday.

  • To All the Beaver Family,
    Dan was always a breath of fresh air whenever we would get to see him. The loss of such a great guy will surely leave a huge a huge hole in the family. We have wonderful memories though and we won’t let those fade anytime soon. Our warmest thoughts are for you all.

  • Nancy and I join our other neighbors in saying how saddened we are by Dann’s passing. We will miss his kindly wave as he drove by our home on Springwater Drive. Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the entire Beaver family. Don and Nancy Omahan

  • Lynn, Brad, Brett, Lisa,

    First and foremost, May the lord comfort each of you and the entire Beaver Family,

    Dann …. Where can you start, all of these condolences are a testament of who Dann was, a good man no doubt. If everyone would live their life with the values and heart Dann did my what a great world it would be. But people are not perfect that’s a certainty. Dann treated everyone, regardless of their mistakes or their great accomplishments as a person. We could all learn something from this man. You will be missed my friend, but never forgotten. If you stop and think of Dann’s grin and it doesn’t put a smile on your face…..


  • Lynn, Brad, Brett, Lisa

  • So sorry to hear of Dann’s passing. He was a good friend since we were young. I knew how close he & Denny were throughout the years also. Even though I moved away years ago, whenever I came home I always stopped in to Overhead Doors each day to have a visit with Dann. Tom Lapp & I would come together. He was a good man and gave a lot to so many but was always a friend.
