Vance, Dan William

Dan William Vance - our father, grandfather, husband, & friend was kind, very loved and will be greatly missed. After 11 years of living with Parkinson's, Danny William Vance, 71, died peacefully on Wed., April 19, 2017 at Kaseman Hospice.

Dan was born in February, 1946 to parents, Regina Catherine & Roy William Vance, in Petersburg, WV. Dan & Sally George met on a blind date which led to 49 years of marriage. The Vances moved to Worthington, OH where Dan became VP and Plant Manager of Bron-Shoe Co. Dan and Sally raised their family in Worthington near the picturesque Olentangy River bike path where they often walked. Dan & Sally remained there for 27 years before retiring to Albuquerque, NM in 2006 to be closer to their children.

Dan is survived by his wife Sally; son Andrew William Vance and his wife Sue and their daughter Sidney; daughter, Amy Schooling Mullins and her husband Scott, and kids: Sarah and Devin; and Dan's one sister, Dr. Karen Harper-Dorton and her husband Joe and her children: Stacia and Chris.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 4 pm at the First Unitarian Church.
