Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Retired Chief Warrant Officer 3 of the United States Army
August 4, 1930 – January 31, 2021
Dan passed peacefully at home after a courageous battle with cancer and is survived by his sister, Janet Shaver; sister -in-law, Loretta (David) Olds; daughter, Raedeen (Dave) Chambers; grandchildren, Amanda and Mark Woolgar and Zachary Chambers; great-grandchildren, Luke, Emma, Cole, Morgan, and Hudson; many extended family, too many friends to mention who were steadfast guardians of his friendship. Dick Brogdan, his closest friend, will miss Dan beyond measure, but it also grateful Dan is at peace. Dan was preceded in death by his wife, Mae; son, Jeff; sisters, Jean, June, and Mary and brothers, Richard, David, Tom, Sam, and Bob.
Truly a military retire and a devoted citizen, Dan lived with honor, with a clear sense of right and wrong, while accepting all for whom they were. Dan’s greatest joy came from his family, and especially from his daughter and son-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Finding an empty space in Dan’s home to add another picture of family members would be a tough task.
Dan will be greatly missed by family and friends who are eternally grateful he was able to make his own decisions and chart his own leaving. His care at home was entrusted to Reagan Thomas, who enabled him to be where he wanted and on his terms.
A family celebration of Dan’s Life will take place at a later date. A gathering of those Old boys and their sisters has surely taken place and Heaven will never be the same.
The Olds family is being assisted by Georgia Cremation, 7500 Veterans Parkway, Suite A, Columbus, Georgia 31909, 706-577-0055. The family invites you to leave a condolence or share a fond memory of Mr. Dan below.
