Dana, you were one of a kind. I love you and I know you loved me. You had me laughing all the time till I would cry because my sides hurt so back from laughing.
I listen to all your voice mails, the one I listen to the most is I'm coming up there an you just leave your bedroom window cracked just a little and I don't care what your son and that little chicken hawk says I'm going to one that window and I'm coming in. When I played it for you, you said ask Chick he knows how crazy I am and he knows I'll do it. Dana, I wish I could remember so of the things you would say and I would look at you like what and then came that big smile and the laugh, I knew then you got me again. I was talking to Chick today and out of the blue he said something and I thought for a second and he said Brenda that's what Dana would say. I said you're right he said when Bullet and Dana worked with y'all he said between the two of y'all they couldn't get much work done cause of y'all rolling in the grass.
Dana, I miss you and it's so hard to know there want be any more calls during the night not ever my heart is broken. But one of the most recent calls you were talking and I said Dana I can't understand you. You said well if you were eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and didn't have any milk to wash it down I wouldn't be able to understand you. Man am I going miss you and setting on the big ole front porch. It was so beautiful down there listening to the birds sing and you telling me all about the land and how much you loved it there. And you was going to mess up my Jeep so id be stuck down there what great and wonderful memories ill Cherish forever. Love you, Dana, Rest High On That Mountain 💔💔💔🌹🌹🌹 ♥️U

I’m gonna miss my old friend and classmate at the old St. Patrick’s school on broad street. The angels are blessed to have a master story teller in their midst. I wish I had a recording of just one of his episodes. We’ll meet again in glory. �

So sorry to hear about Dana. He was an awesome guy and so much fun. Down to earth, reasonable and so very good to me in our younger years. Took me hunting and fishing and loved playing basketball with us. I know you all will miss his vibrant personality immensely. Thinking of you all at this time.

Not just once, he shot the same fake deer again the following year, and was caught and fined again.В  The game warren was Mike Jolly, who also knew Fish!

Fish my husband talked of you fondly and how you invited him to hunt from your porch when he had gotten so sick. Now you guys can continue on where y'all left off. Thank you for what you did for him.
For the family you left behind my deepest sympathy of your loss.

I remember picking you up every morning for that long ride to Glenwood when you were out of commission with a broken leg. You yelled slow down, then speed up ,before we are late. You were one of our Sandfort Road Crew and we graduated as The Hell Raising Crew Of '72. I will always remember you Fish and the good times we had. Prayers to the family.

So sad and sorry to hear of Dana’s passing. He was a wonderful Brother-in/law and always treated me with love and kindness as does all of his family. Recently ran into Dana at 82 West Restaurant in Union Springs and he had not changed a bit and was the same smiling and funny Dana. Last thing said was “y’all come to see me”. Dana you will be missed...and thanks for always treating me like family. Love to you and the Wilson family.

Dana loved to hunt and he told me the story of him going hunting and he came upon a deer and he shot and it didn’t go down so he shot it 2-3 more times and it didn’t go down. Turns out it was a fake deer put out by the Game Warden. May the Spirit be with you. Love, Lanny and Rachael Tyra.
