Danny Andrew Fallin, 66, of Collinsville, TX, passed away on September 16, 2022.
Dan Fallin was born on September 24, 1955 to Andrew Jackson Fallin and Loretta Rushing in Dallas, Texas. After Dan graduated from South Grand Prairie High School in 1974, he went on to run several successful contracting businesses. He also served as a Desoto Police Officer for many years. Later in his life, he devoted his time to public service serving on the Collinsville ISD School Board for nine years.
In 1973, Dan met Gay Lynn Maynard after a fortuitous prank call. Dan and Gay went on to have two children, Amanda and Katherine.
Dan was predeceased by his father and mother and beloved father-in-law Robert Maynard.
He is survived by his wife, of 46 years Gay Fallin, his children, Amanda (Jonathan) Pollard and Katherine (Matthew) Hill, his niece, Stefanie (Brandon) Hall and nephew, Steven (Jacqui) Stallings, his grandsons, Harrison and Andrew, his great nephews, Brayden, Deacon and Landon, his sister, Connie Maynard and his mother-in-law, Alma Maynard as well as many nieces, nephews and close friends and family.
He leaves behind an outdoor loving, dare-devil, hell-of-a-time legacy. His shining example of unconditional love and unwavering support of his wife and family will continue to serve as an anchor for his family for many years to come.
Graveside services will be held at Collinsville Cemetery at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, officiated by Rev. Dr. Cherie Fry. A time of visitation for family and friends will be held on Monday, September 19, 2022 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Meador Funeral Home of Whitesboro.
May the Peace of the Lord be with you all during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts & prayers.
I will always remember Danny and Bill Thomson coming into my office in Irving when Danny was building houses . But most times it was talking about trips they had taken to Vegas to play Craps! What great laughs we had. Danny was full of life and he will be missed. My condolences to the family and May Danny rest in eternal peace.
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family.
Gay, we’re sorry to hear about Dan. May God comfort you and the family during this difficult time.
Prayers of strength for the family. It is really hard losing a father and husband. I lost my dad almost 2 years ago. Just remember how much he loved his family and when you see a red cardinal, it’s your dad saying he is okay and he loves you. My prayers are with you.
