It's hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.
  • Born in Clarksville, Arkansas, United States.
  • Passed away in Georgetown, Texas, United States.

Welcome! This is an online space to commemorate the life of Dan.  

As we mourn the loss of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend his legacy has come into focus. In the last few days we've received so many well wishes from near and far. It's clear that he shared his big heart with all those he met and that he touched many lives. 

He sure loved to tell stories. Now we'd love to hear your stories and memories about him. Please use this space to leave well wishes, share your favorite memory, upload pictures, etc. We will be checking this space often as we reflect on the life of a great man who will be dearly missed.

Our family's request during this time is that you carry on his legacy. Find a way to honor him today and every day by living out what you loved most about him.

I didn't know Mr. Hightower personally but wanted to share a message of encouragement. From what I can see in the comments he was deeply cared about and loved by his friends and family. I saw a couple of scriptures in one comment but just wanted to share one more. Take comfort in knowing he's at rest. We look forward to the time when 1 Corinthians 15:26 is fulfilled when the enemy of death will be eliminated. Until that time deep sympathy---Julia

Brenda and I were so saddened to hear of Dan's passing and sorry we could not be at his Memorial. I will miss talking with Dan about any and all subjects as we would do when we would cross paths on my walks. He lived a "big" life. Our thoughts and prayers are with Christine and all of Dan's family. Brenda and Larry Franks

My condolences go out to Mr. Hightower's friends and family. We all long for the time when Revelation 21:3, 4 will be a reality! At that time, our loved ones will live again and will be reunited with those who love them. Please be assured in the meantime, that the "God of all comfort" has the desire and ability to comfort you in your time of grief. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

"The way Dan talked about Christine, how much he loved and admired her, how grateful he was to have found such a perfect life partner, and the look on his face when he looked at Christine is what I will remember most about Dan. He will be missed by anyone who knew him."

Christine and family, I am so sorry and sad for you all. My prayers go with you at this time. I always enjoyed visiting with Dan on the phone about coatings etc. He was always so careful not to say something that wasn't correct! I will remember him for a long time. Wishing you the best at this sad time.

Dan and I have had some great conversations. We also had a great deal in common. Ill miss his quick wit.

Over the last 4 years, Dan and I became very good friends. He reached out to me when things were tough. Dan had kind soul, and a good heart. In our business dealing's, we got to where we talked on the phone almost every day, sometimes two or three times a day. His sense of humor, his honesty, his integrity, was admired the most. This man really cared about his friends and customers. I'm glad to have gotten to know such a good man. My prayers are with Christine and the Hightower family

Christine, Carolyn and I were stunned to read of Dan's passing. Although we didn't know you before we purchased the Jeep, we felt like we were visiting with family. May he rest in peace.

I never saw Dan without a big smile on his face. When meeting in the neighborhood he was never to busy to stop and talk. He was so easy and fun to be with that a quick chat could turn into 20 minutes before you realized it. His smile, his wave, and his presence will be missed every day. Rest well, friend, although you are probably busy organizing a car race with the angels.
