Daniel Jay Elbon, 61, met Jesus in Heaven on Friday, May 1, 2020. He was born on Aug. 26, 1958 in Carmi, Illinois, to the late Junior and Phyllis Cecil Elbon. He was a loving son, brother and uncle.
Dan was an employee of CSI for 32 years. He was a 1976 graduate of Lone Oak High School and received an Associate’s Degree at Paducah Community College. He also attended Western Kentucky University and the University of Kentucky.
