Dan (Gene) Sheets, 95, passed away Oct. 31, 2020. Survived by his second wife, Tamera; his beloved dog, Eyore; and many friends. He was loved by everyone who knew him. Preceded in death by his wife of 57 years, Lorraine Sheets; parents, Blake and Nellie Sheets; and brother, Glen Sheets. Dan was born in 1925, at his aunt’s house on N. Nevada Avenue in Colorado Springs, Colo. He was proud to be known as the most honest contractor in Pueblo. Dan served his country in WWII and was the first to haul bananas into Pueblo with his friend, Jerry Miller, after WWII. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and partying with his friends. Dan loved spending time at his property in the Rosita Hills and was always happy, even at the end of his life. He was witty with a great sense of humor and only remembered the good things. Dan was proud to be a 32nd Degree Mason and a member of the Southern Colorado Consistory. Per Dan’s request, there will be no service. If you’d like to honor Dan, he’d smile on you having a bourbon and 7Up in his memory. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Sangre de Cristo Hospice, 1207 Pueblo Blvd. Way, Pueblo, CO 81005.
