Dan Jones (from Allegan,MI) called today, sounds like he is in stage 4 cancer. Still in good spirits, please keep him in your prayers. He is a former employee of Abbotts and used to work the print shop there and also demo'd behind the counter.

My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
Magic is an art. I am merely a tour guide.

Dan,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Please remain strong and keep a strong positive attitude as you fight this insidious disease. I believe a number of studies suggest that a strong positive mental attitude is great beneficial in these fights.

Dan is a great guy and was one of the busiest guys around. Spoke with him awhile back - they had a benefit for him and his spirits were good then...yes, prayers going up....

Just got this, we'll post this at Tops as well

Our friend and long time Abbott Magic Get-Together attendee, Dann (Dando) Jones, passed away at home on February 7th after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was born on January 31, 1944 in Allegan Michigan. I first met Dan at the Abbott Magic Get-Together in 1973. It was my fifth Get-Together and Dan was already a long time attendee. He was always friendly, willing to share, and I do not recall ever seeing him in a bad mood.

Dann was a Magician, Escape Artist, Caricaturist, and Ventriloquist. He was also an avid naturalist, out doorsman, nature lover, and had taught classes on nature and wilderness survival. His last magic tour was just over a year ago. Dann was the Magic MC for a touring Chinese acrobat team.

I will remember Dann as a lover of magic, nature, and life and for his tireless and persistent contribution to the above. His presence will be missed and his memory cherished.

Take care

Ah, this is someone I haven't thought about in a very long time.

I met Dann in the '70s when he lived in Phoenix. We would recommend each other for gigs for which we weren't available. I bought an Abbotts Canvas Covered Box illusion from him before he and I both moved to other parts of the country. He was a nice guy.

After reading this thread I rooted around in a trunk of stuff I have from those days and found one of his "Dando the Magician" brochures. <s> Man, did he have a big fro back then!

RIP, Dann.

Knew Dan for a long time. He was a 'working' magician and always looking forward to the school show season and always had a new idea. He was very good friends with my sales manager, the late Jack Barrows, and Dan frequented the shop often.

A great guy - he will be missed.

Found this doing a google search about Dando. In 1979, he sold me my first magic trick in a booth he had at the Allegan County Fair. It was a $1 Svengali deck, which I still have to this day. Rick Fisher, I enjoyed catching up with you and hearing about Dando, back when I visited you shop in January 2016.

My question for Donal Chayce is, can I see that brochure? I'm at the Magic Castle often and would love to arrange to see that.
