Obituary

Daniel Sears Robertson, Jr., 71, died on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, at his home with family
by his side.

Dan was born on August 18, 1948 in West Point, Georgia, to Daniel Sears Robertson, Sr. and Ida
Collins Robertson. He graduated from Lanett High School and then attended Jacksonville State
and Marion Military Institute before graduating from Auburn University with a degree in
Agricultural Business and Economics. Dan was an Army veteran who served his country during
the early 1970’s.

Dan, also affectionately known as “Sausage,” moved to Scott Station in Perry County in 1973
and has called this area home for the last 46 years. He was a long-time active member of the
Alabama Farmers Federation and served in several capacities including--- Alfa Young Farmers,
Perry County President multiple times, state Soybean Committee and as a FarmPAC Trustee. He
was also elected to a term on the Alabama Farmers Federation State Board of Directors. Dan
was also a long-time member of the Cattleman’s Association and served on the Perry County
Farm Service Agency Board.

Dan was preceded in death by his father, Daniel Sears Robertson, Sr. He leaves behind his
loving wife, Paula, and daughters Carrie Williams, Casey (Keith) Hardeman and Brook
Robertson, grandchildren Charlee and Katie Williams and Nolan Hardeman, mother, Ida C.
Robertson, sisters Alice Pitts (Terry Anderson), Patsy (Jimmy) Smith, brother Jack (Charlotte)
Robertson, sisters-in-law Donna (Bill) Jones, Alexia (Mike) Garner, and Greta Hogg, brothers-in-

law Ray Hogg, Tommy (Sharon) Hogg and Holland Hogg, numerous nieces and nephews and
cousins.

Dan was blessed to have some of the most wonderful friends a man could ever wish for – and
that’s because he was such a faithful and loyal friend to them. Dan was passionate about
farming and was a successful cattle and row crop farmer – it was truly a labor of love for him.
Dan had a servant’s heart and always strived to do for others. Cooking was one of his favorite
pastimes when he wasn’t working, and he always shared his food with many.

Pallbearers are John Anderson, Gary Burt, Roy Crawford, Joe Dean, Corin Harrison, Greg Hinton,
Charles Holmes, Tommy Jones, Keith Roye, Stanley Walters and Paul Wheeler. A memorial
service will be held Friday, October 18, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at Marion United Methodist Church,
with a celebration of life immediately following at Grassland Farms.

The family would like to thank Dr. Shane Lee, Sommer Webb and the team at Comfort Care
Hospice for the loving care they provided during Dan’s illness.

Flowers are welcome or donations can be made to the Alabama Farmer Agriculture Foundation
– P.O. Box 11000, Montgomery, Alabama 36191.

Danny was a very good friend to me and many others.
I'll never forget the "Gray Ghost and our trips south on I-85 before it had even opened. Squirrel hunting on the Robertson land. Playing basketball. And in general enjoying things when we were young.
Danny was always a delight to kick around with.
His generosity and positive attitude were just some of his attributes, and it rubbed off on many.
Sure going to miss him and wish we had been able to spend time together more recently.
His family is great and I hope the sorrow of his loss will eventually be replaced by smiles remembering his life.

Ronnie and I are deeply saddened to learn of Danny's death. He was a loyal and dear friend for 50+ years and we have lots of good memories of our "crazy" times together in high school and beyond. We will miss him terribly!! Much love to Paula and girls.
