Dan was born April 7, 1956, in Spartanburg, SC. He is the youngest of 5 children born to John William and Willie Mae Vickers. He spent his life working hard for his family as a Boilermaker/Welder and retired in 2017. He was a member of Boilermakers Local No. 83.
Dan was extremely proud of his family and talked of them often to anyone he met. He enjoyed spending time with friends and family and was a great storyteller. He would talk and joke to anyone in earshot. Even at the end, when his body was failing him, he was cracking jokes with the hospital staff. Dan was an avid football fan, specifically Alabama Crimson Tide and The Kansas City Chiefs.
Left to cherish his memory are daughters Heather (Josh) Roberts, Freedom (Reyneiro) Vega-Tirado, sons by marriage Michael “Shannon”, David (Heidi), Jason (Sara) Vickers, grandchildren Austin, Madison, and Nathan (Stephany Flinn) Summers, Colin, Evan, and Owen Roberts, Jeffrey Hodge, Chevelle Thomas, Olivia Gaddis, Ariel, Ashley, Anna, Riley, Benjamin and Sophia Vickers, great granddaughter Hazel Summers and a great grandson on the way. Dan is also survived by his sister Faye Armstrong of Alabama, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his wife Wanda Vickers, father John William Vickers and mother Willie Mae Vickers, his brothers Johnny and Bobby Vickers, and sister Brenda Creel.
Dan’s remains will be buried at a later date, in Alabama next to his parents.
