Emily and Elizabeth Plank College
Dan Plank had a stroke and passed away on December 8th, 2017. He has 2 little girls, Emily and Elizabeth. We are starting a college fund for them. Danny was only 38 years old and had so much left to show the world. 100% of the proceeds from this campaign will be put towards pre-paid tuition plan(s) as well as 529 college savings plans for his girls.+ Read More
As some of you may know, Danny was very passionate about education, continuous learning and using one’s own brain, instead of collective thought. He would often challenge us to think out of the box to figure out ways to do things differently or without reading the instructions. He believed in hard work and perseverance. After spending 25+years in school/residency, Danny would often talk about going to law school or becoming a general contractor. He never wanted to become complacent. The gift of education was something he felt very strongly about and wanted to provide for Emily and Elizabeth. Thank you for helping me provide this wonderful gift to his legacies. There are not enough words to properly express how thankful I am for all of you. I am so moved by all the love and support we have received. I know that from Heaven he’s aware of your kindness and generosity and is looking down on all of us with love. My heart is filled with gratitude. Thank you.
As we approach Christmas, I wanted to thank everyone who has kept Andrea, Emily and Elizabeth in their thoughts and prayers. It is never easy to say goodbye to anyone, especially this time of year. It’s a bittersweet holiday - so in honor of my little brother who had personality larger than life, I ask that you cherish your friends and family, be thankful for each day... it truly is a gift. Thank you again to everyone who has helped us on our journey to raise funds for Danny’s daughters college tuition. Please keep sharing! - Ryan Plank
Today we said our final goodbyes to Danny. Gone, but NEVER forgotten. Services were beautiful and thank you to everyone who could attend. In honor of Danny, share a funny memory you have of him, and continue to share this page so we can give his girls the gift of education. And remember - grape Kool-aid pancakes for breakfast!!
