Dan Alan Yount was born April 15, 1949 in St. Joseph, Michigan to Russ and Alice Yount. After obtaining his MBA, his career took him to Alabama and Iowa before he spent 20 years as a respected businessman in Omaha, Nebraska, and eventually retiring to Henderson, Nevada. A lifelong lover of music, he formed the group Minor Creek and spent many hours of enjoyment playing and singing, as well as writing his own music. Among his other interests were Cubs baseball, Husker and Michigan football, and Friday nights on the patio with a Bud Light.
Dan was diagnosed with ALS in November of 2015. With no known cause or cure, ALS challenges the human spirit and tests the courage of everyone touched by this devastating disease. Through it all, Dan remained optimistic when dealing with every new challenge the disease brought. His sense of humor was invaluable. He concentrated on living life to the fullest - taking trips, going to concerts, and spending time with his family. The ALS Association's aid to patients of ALS and their families was instumental in helping Dan and Michelle cope with their ever changing lives.
Dan lost his battle with ALS April 28, 2018, surrounded by his family. He leaves behind his wife, Michelle, 7 children, and 10 grandchildren. He was loved by so many, and left a lasting impact on those who knew him. He is and will continue to be greatly missed.
