October 31, 2010, This is the day Danny was called from his earthly home to join many of his loved ones in Heaven.
Danny was born on August 1, 1955 to Van and Betty (Jones) Clary and greeted by a sister, Russelle Anne.
So life began for this blond haired, blue eyed little boy in Cabool, Mo. He played and grew and learned, attending Cabool School and later moving to Mountain Grove where he graduated from Mountain Grove High School in 1973.
Then it was on to the hustle and bustle of life with a move to California, working in car dealerships throughout the seventies, a marriage, and various jobs in construction eventually becoming a salesman at Meek’s Lumber in Mountain Grove. He continued to play all along the way: bike racing, scuba diving, playing banjo, restoring old gas station memorabilia, participating in car shows and many other adventures..
Danny was employed at Meek’s for many years where his fairness and integrity earned him the respect and friendships of many.
He accepted the Lord at a young age and when this terrible illness came, Danny ran to the shelter of His Father’s arms. There he put on his suit of Armour and faced each day with courage and a thankful heart.
He was preceded in death by his father, Van Clary in 2007; his paternal grandparents, John and Ida Mae Clary; his maternal grandparents, Edward and Virgie Jones; and by a niece, Jaimie Donnelly.
He is survived by his mother, Betty Hutcheson of Ozark, Mo.; sisters, Rusty Donnelly and her husband, Jim, of Unionville, Nevada and Melissa Chako of Reno, Nevada; his brothers, Stanley White of Cabool, Mo., Clayton Stoner and his wife, Candle, of Ozark, Mo., and Jeffrey Stoner; several nephews, nieces, a host of other relatives and friends and his pride and joy, Bunny Allen of Cabool, Mo.
And so it ends here, to begin there…
