Allan Dean Sheridan, 75, died Nov. 21, 2004 after a long bout with Parkinson's disease. He was born May 4, 1929 in Ellsworth County, Kan. to Allan Alex and Freda Marie (Milbradt) Sheridan.
He served 10 years in the U.S. Air Force. While stationed in Okinawa during the Korean conflict, he was a medical specialist with a medic evacuation squad.
Mr. Sheridan retired from Public Service Company of Colorado in 1986.
He and his wife, Darlene, began to travel the states in their fifth-wheel trailer. He loved to travel and never met a stranger. He managed a trip to Alaska, two trips to Ireland and returned twice to Okinawa before his Parkinson's disease took over.
He was a carver of small birds and a writer, which one would have to read to believe his talent. He received Christ as his Savior in January 1987 and followed Him wherever He led.
He is survived by his wife, Darlene of Payson; two daughters by a previous marriage, Dee Kincade of Chandler, and Barbara Sheridan of Denver, Colo.; two grandsons and two granddaughters; three sisters, Melva Chamberlain of Newton, Kan., Edith Hummer of Ft. Worth, Texas, and Sherry Scott of Salina, Kan.; and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, Nov. 26, 2004 at Star Valley Baptist Church. Internment will be at Fort Logan Military Cemetery, Denver, Colo.
