Daniel A. Gawthorp, 73 of Urbana, died at 10:59 a.m., Thursday, February 18, 2021 at OSF Heart of Mary, Urbana.

Danny was born on March 31, 1947 in Urbana, a son of Ervan and Carol Pendleton Gawthorp.  He married Susie Muir on July 18, 1988 in Champaign.  She survives, along with his dog, Gracie.

He was preceded in death by his father, stepmother, Hazel, his mother, stepfather, Russell Fonger, and three siblings.

Danny was a man of few words.  He loved his “man cave”, gardening, keeping his yard trimmed, bird watching and NASCAR.  You could always find Danny around his fire pit enjoying a cold beer and good sunset.

He served in the US Army.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to an organization of the donor’s choice.

Cremation rites will be accorded with no services.  Morgan Memorial Home, Savoy is assisting with arrangements (www.morganmemorialhome.com).
