Danny Gilliam, 52, of Hendersonville went to be with the Lord Thursday, January 8, 2015 at the Laurels of Hendersonville following a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Henderson County, he was the son of Clyde and Gleanus Gilliam of Hendersonville and the late Wilma Hill.
Danny lived in Henderson County most of his life. He was a very down-to-earth man who loved to camp. Danny enjoyed woodworking and riding motorcycles, and he loved to be outdoors, especially around Lake Julian. He was also an avid animal lover. One of his greatest joys in life was spending time with his family and friends. He attended Northview Church in Fletcher.
In addition to Clyde and Gleanus, Danny is survived by his sisters, Kerrie Edwards (Michael) of Asheville and Lesia Corn (Clay) of Hendersonville; nephew, Logan Edwards; nieces, Lindsey Edwards and Reese Corn; and great-grandmother, Serepta Arrington.
A memorial service will be held at 2 PM Sunday, January 11, 2015 in the Kirby Memorial Chapel of Shuler Funeral Home.
