Danny was born Oct. 14, 1952, at Newport to George Warren McGahan and Texie Mae Kyle McGahan. He passed from this life on April 17, 2014, in Lone Grove at the age of 61.

Danny graduated from Lone Grove High School in 1970 and attended Murray State College. He and Wendy Nail were married Sept. 3, 1982, in Lone Grove. Danny retired from Michelin. His hobbies were spending time with his grandkids, who were the light of his life — Gracie and Jackson, as well as welding, wheeling and dealing, riding his motorcycle and hanging with his lifelong friend, John “Big John” Bullard. They spent many hours in his shop.

Danny is survived by his wife Wendy of the home; daughters Dara McGahan and Tracy McGahan, both of Lone Grove; grandchildren Gracie Presley and Jackson Woods of Lone Grove; sisters Zelda Copeland and husband Etzell, and Sandra Clifton and husband Terry, all of Lone Grove; mother-in-law Arlene Nail; and many extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by father, mother and brother.
