We are saddened to announce the passing of Dale Danes, 70 of Shady Valley, TN, passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at his residence. He was born February 17, 1950 to the late Earl and JoAnn Smith Danes. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brother Douglas Danes; uncles, Al and David Danes, and Shirley “Bill” Smith.
He is survived by his incredibly patient and loving wife of 19 years, Theresa Danes; daughter, Beth (Jim) Hunter of Kimball, TN; sisters Diane (Steve) Ingram of Show Low, AZ and Denise (Dennis) Gehringer of Southfield, MI; grandsons, James and Max Hunter of Kimball, TN; Father-in-law, Thomas Robinson of Shady Valley, TN; aunt Phyllis Smith Jackson Franks of Crossville, TN; several nieces and nephews, and special friends, Bill and Alex.
A retired cook, hockey enthusiast and loyal friend, Dale truly enjoyed riding his motorcycle, but his shining accomplishment was his 37 years of continuous sobriety.
