Veteran-IntroAfter an enjoyable motorcycle ride on Saturday, February 20, 2016, Dann Dickemann settled in at home and began his heavenly journey.   He is now with his parents, Orville and Ora Turner Dickemann; and siblings, Robert “Sonny” Hahs, Fairalee Baity, and Kenneth Hahs.

Dann was born January 25, 1948, in St. Louis.  He happily shared life for nearly 13 years with his beloved wife, Diane Jordan.

Dann was known for his quick wit, sense of humor, and his ability to make friendships with all who had an opportunity to know him.  His servant heart and deep faith in his Lord was evident to many.  He frequently shared memories of his Navy days, serving from 1967 to 1970, and his work years, most of which were at Doe Run in Herculaneum.  He attended First Baptist and Connection Point Churches in Jackson.

Loving survivors include his wife, Diane; children, Daniel (Shari) Dickemann and Donna (Chris) Kelly; Diane’s children, Katie (Josh) Ferguson and David (Andrea) Allstun; ten grandchildren, Drake, Nicholas, Alexis, Zola, Emri, Devin (Amber), Abby, Brendan, Lainey, Ellie; two great-grandchildren, Nash and Kaylee; and mother-in-law, Vallillee Jordan.

Visitation will be Saturday, February 27, 2016, from 9:30 a.m. to service time, at the chapel of McCombs Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Jackson.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, at the funeral home, with the Revs. Billy Garner and Brian Gill officiating.

Burial will be held privately at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Wounded Warrior Project or the American Heart Association.

    We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed being with Dann and think fondly of him. He and Diane were perfect for each other and he will certainly be missed. It is a blessing that Dann is with his Father in Heaven and his family who has gone on before, enjoying what God has prepared for us. We will see him again some day. Our prayers are with you, Diane, and with the rest of the family.

    Love you,

    Vella & Donnie Friedman

    The photo of Dann is sooooo typical. I always think of Dann as smiling and fun to be around. I loved sharing email jokes with him and he always had such enjoyable comments. Wherever he went, he could not be ignored and left the place better than before. He will be sorely missed. Thank the good Lord you know where he is and that he is patiently waiting for you. My prayers for you have been and are on their way.

    We did not know Dann very long, but enjoyed the times we spent with he and Diane in Branson. He could tell the funniest stories, and always was cheerful and kind. He and Diane made a perfect couple and their love and respect was evident. We will miss him, and we pray Daine and family will always remember the happiness he brought to all who knew him. Dann is home with Jesus and in that we rejoice with him.
