Dan & Mary at SPHS 50th

Dan Blount

1939 - Jan.11, 2018

Dan was in the marines from '58-'62, and will rest in Southwest Virginia Veterans Cemetery in Dublin, VA. He was first diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005. He underwent extensive chemo & radiation treatments, but in June of 2017, the cancer had metastasized into his bones and throughout his entire body.  A wonderful Hospice nurse named Patty was instrumental in much of his later care. He fought hard, and throughout, kept his sense of humor!! He was still loving and strong when he slipped away peacefully at 11:45 am on January 11, 2018, with his children nearby, and his beloved Mary holding his hand. Dan was an amazing father and grandfather. He had 4 children, (3 sons and 1 daughter), 4 stepchildren, (3 daughters and 1 son), and many grandchildren. He was 78 years young.

On December 22, 2019, after an extended illness and a valiant fight, Danny Calik, our old friend and classmate, succumbed to cancer at his home in Florida, with his wife Fran by his side.

He had been ill on and off since May of last year with many setbacks, but Fran said Dan kept his good attitude until the end, and was ready.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, as well as a treasured friend to us all.
