Dana Joe Gillum, 64, of Camden, passed away on March 4, 2020 in his residence surrounded by his family.

Born June 2, 1955 in Logansport, IN, he was the son of Donald and Judith (Peterson) Gillum.

Dana worked as an electrician at Chrysler in Kokomo. He was a proud member of IBEW Local 668 and UAW 685.

Dana was a faithful member of Elks Lodge #66. He loved to golf year-round and had recently got to enjoy golfing in Hawaii with Melinda.  He was an avid Cubs fan and also liked watching the Indianapolis Colts.  Most important to him, however, was his friends and family and he cherished the time he got to spend with them.
