Dan E. Short

July 17, 1959 — March 8, 2020

Dan E. Short, 60, of Urbana, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, March 8, 2020. He was born on July 17, 1959, in Springfield, the son of Eugene R.

Dan is survived by his beloved mother and step-father, Oleda and Jerry Baker; caring siblings, Debra (Jeff) Johnson, Deana (Steve) Knisley and Doug (Heidi) Short; nephews, Brandon (Megan) Short and Logan Short; step-siblings, Lisa, Deb (Scott), Brett (Kim) and Brenda (Jamie); and numerous aunts, uncles, great-nieces and nephews, extended family members and close friends. He was reunited in Heaven with his father, Eugene and his grandparents. Viewing will be held on Friday, March 13, 2020 from 5-8p.m. at JACKSON LYTLE & LEWIS LIFE CELEBRATION CENTER.
