Dana Edgar

April 18, 1952 — January 25, 2019

Dana Craig Edgar, age 66, of Emory, passed away Friday, Jan. 25th, in Dallas, at Baylor Hospital.

He was born April 18, 1952, at Florence Nightingale Maternity Hospital in Dallas...which was affiliated

with Baylor Hospital back then.

His parents were M.E. (Jelly) and Margaret Buie Edgar.

Dana worked in several different jobs, during his working years, however, toward the end of his working

years, he was self-employed working in the agriculture equipment repair business.

He was a former member of a group who loved re-enacting stories or tales of the Old Wild West. They were known as

SASS....standing for Single Action Shooters Society. The ones in the group donned clothes that were replicas

of the clothes the men wore in those days. They fired rifles that were exact replicas of the ones used during that era.

This group would go to county fairs, or Historical Days, and present a tale, or story, from the Wild West Days.

Wherever they were invited... SASS would go and act out the story or tale for onlookers.

Dana really enjoyed participating in SASS.

Dana was a member of Emory Church of Christ.

He was a talker, as in, he never met a stranger! This is why people thought so much of him.

He will be missed by many.

Sisters: Lisa Edgar Holman and husband Steve of Emory; and,

Jan Edgar Culberson and husband Randy of Heath

Nieces and Nephews: Jason Edgar; Chad Edgar; Daniel Holman; Krista Fischer; Kara Covey; and Brandon Culberson
