Dane graduated from Nandua High School, where he was praised for his skills on the football field and was known for his compassionate nature, sweet smile, love for big trucks and hot rods, and especially for his incredible talent as a guitarist.  Following high school, he attended James Madison University, earning his bachelor’s degree in finance and accounting.  Dane worked as a logistics coordinator for Lockheed Martin, was a volunteer coach for Nandua’s football team, and had recently been accepted as a substitute teacher for Accomack County Public Schools.  He was a loyal fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, loved a good mud hop, and spent most of his free time at the YMCA lifting weights or helping others achieve their lifting goals.  Dane will forever be remembered for his kind soul, beautiful heart, and unconditional love, which he graciously shared with all who knew him.
