OBITUARY ~ DAN ALLEN SICKELS
May 22, 1947 ~ August 24, 2012

Dan Allen SICKELS, son of Lester and Dorothy SNETHEN SICKELS, was born May 22, 1947 in Creston, Iowa, and passed away August 24, 2012 in Bethany, Oklahoma after a short bout with lung cancer. He graduated from Mount Ayr Community high school in 1965 and served in the Army National Guard during the Vietnam era.

Dan married Sandra SELVIG of Bode, Iowa. To this union one son, Scott Allen, was born. Dan worked for Hilton Homes in Guttenberg, Iowa, in the Oklahoma oil fields, with his cousin, Bill SICKELS, as a mechanic and in the brokerage business with his good friend, Jerry WOODY, for 35 years.

Dan loved to travel and held especially fond memories of several years in Costa Rica. He never knew a stranger and could be relied upon to assist anyone, especially stranded travelers who were in trouble. He was particularly happy to be able to spend a week in Stigler, Oklahoma with both of his sisters shortly before he passed away.

Dan was preceded in death by his grandparents; his parents; a twin brother, Dennis Earl; and a niece, Lisa Jane BUCKNER.

Survivors include his son, Scott; two sisters, Jeri (Don) POMI of Fallon, Nevada and Gayle (Nathan) LAMB of Stigler, Oklahoma; one niece, Susan (Allen) POST; four nephews, Steve (Julie) POMI, Mike (Jeanne) POMI, Tim BUCKNER and Shawn (Renee) BUCKNER; seven great-nieces and nephews a number of relatives and friends; and special friends, Greg and Donna WARREN of Yukon, Oklahoma and Jerry WOODY of Joplin, Missouri.

Graveside services are planned for July 20 at 1:30 p.m. at Rose Hill Cemetery in Mount Ayr, Iowa.
