Daniel "Dan" Dean Dyson, 42, of Winston-Salem, passed from this life recently into his Heavenly Home. Now he is with Jesus in a place where no sorrow or sickness will ever be. He was born Dec. 24, 1960, in Guilford County. He was the beloved son of Margaret and Donald Dyson of Kernersville. He served three years in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he received his G.E.D. He was a very skilled auto mechanic and worked at B&C Motors, where his patrons highly respected and loved him. He took several courses at Forsyth Tech to enable him to work on computerized cars. His dad says, "Dan knew more about repairing cars than anyone I know." Dan attended First Assembly Church of Winston-Salem. He is our cherished son, and we will miss him very much. Besides his loving parents, he is survived by his two beautiful daughters, Heather Joy Dyson and Melissa Dyson Rothrock and husband, Andy Rothrock, and their mother, Rene Dyson; two beautiful granddaughters, "Katie" Marie Rothrock and Emily Leanne Rothrock, all of Winston-Salem; his special brother, David D.
