Dan L. Corliss


August 27, 1941 ~ May 2, 2024 (age 82)

Daniel Leslie Corliss, 82, of Carbon, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 2, 2024.

Graveside services for Dan will be held at 11:00 AM Monday, May 6th at the Family Farm in the Okra Community in Eastland County located at 150 CR 380, Carbon, Texas, with Pastor Jim Everidge officiating.

Dan was born on August 27, 1941, in Ayer, Massachusetts to the late Richard W. Corliss and Eleanor Bean.  Dan spent most of his life as a carpenter/construction worker, and retired after several years in hospital maintenance.  He married Sarah Shaw in 1973, in Dallas, Texas, and together they were able to buy their dream farm in Carbon, Texas and live out their retirement years working on the farm with their cows, horses, and fur babies that they loved so much.  They loved to travel during the spring months to Fredericksburg to see the bluebonnets and wildflowers in bloom.  One of the highlights of their year was to travel to the San Angelo roping fiesta.  Dan and Sarah were members of the Leon River Cowboy Church, and involved with the First Baptist Church in Rising Star.

Survivors include his sons, Steve Corliss of Rising Star and Danny and his wife Terry Shaw of Quitman; daughters, Melanie Wooten of Eastland and Debby and her husband Rodney Payne of Stephenville; grandchildren, Ashley, Cameryn, Branden, Justin, Cody, Eric, Taylor, and Brea; and five great grandchildren; and his cousins Burt, and Gail who were like his brother and sister.

Dan was preceded in death by his wife, Sarah; his parents, his sister, Betty; and his two grandsons, Shane Wells and Josh Shaw.

We want to sincerely thank Kim Grose, one of his special nurses, Kayla and the staff at Solaris Hospice, and Lola and her staff at Lola’s Place for taking such good care of Dan at the end of his life on earth.

In lieu of flowers, the family request that you would please make a donation to the Carbon Volunteer Department, P. O. Box 548, Carbon, Texas  76454.
