Machinist, museum volunteer

May 16, 2007

Everett C. Dann Sr., a retired Westinghouse machinist and museum volunteer, died of stroke complications Friday at Lorien Columbia Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The former Catonsville resident was 88.

Born and raised in Greenville, Mich., Mr. Dann enlisted in the Army shortly before World War II and, while stationed at Fort Meade, met his future wife, Elaine Bonsall, at a Baltimore roller rink. They married in 1944.

They moved to the Academy Heights section of Catonsville after the war, and Mr. Dann became a Westinghouse machinist. After he retired in 1975, he was a volunteer for 20 years at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, where he helped install early machinery.

In his free time, he worked in metal and wood and made musical instruments, breadboards, decorative trays, stools and children's toys, many of which he gave to friends and family or donated to area charities.

His wife, who had been a manager for Rheb's candy, died in 2001.

Two years later, Mr. Dann married Evelyn Barry, a longtime Columbia resident, who died in 2005.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at the Witzke Funeral Home, 1630 Edmondson Ave. in Catonsville.

Survivors include a son, E. Charles Dann Jr. of Ellicott City; a sister, Olive Hancock of Greenville; and two step-grandchildren.
