He was born June 26, 1951 in Durant, OK, the son of D. Haskell and Bonnie (Davidson) Offutt. He graduated from Drumright High School (1969), earned his Bachelor’s of Business Administration at Bethany Nazarene College (1974), and his Master’s of Healthcare Administration from Trinity University (1981). He worked as a hospital administrator and medical practice administrator of radiology groups until he retired from Radiologic Professional Services (RPS) in Lawrence, KS in 2017.
He married Brenda Fortner on December 30, 1971, in Mitchell, South Dakota. He is survived by his wife, Brenda, his children Aaron & Stephanie (Lincoln, NE), Cara & John (Easton, KS), and Evan, and his grandchildren: Bryce, Allison, Loralai, Aubree, John Marcus, and Mayleigh + many “bonus” kids and grandkids including Rob & Shelly Needham (Sam, Isaac, Lydia, and Rachel). Other survivors include his siblings David & Renita (Cushing, OK), Susie (Oklahoma City, OK), and Don & Glynda (Oklahoma City, OK), along with their children and grandchildren.
In the course of their 48 years of marriage, Dane & Brenda spent time living all over Oklahoma, as well as in San Antonio, TX; Amarillo, TX; Lincoln, NE; Cabot, AR; and Lawrence, KS. Dane was a faithful follower of Christ, loving and beloved husband, father, grandpa, son, and brother.
