    In loving memory of J Daniel Tebbs, who was born on April 20, 1938 in Panguitch. Dan peacefully passed away surrounded by family members on September 28, 2023 at the age of 85 in Washington City.  He was a beloved father, husband, friend, and community member.  
    Dan was known for his unwavering dedication to his family, his passion for taking care of those he loves, and his tireless commitment to providing and building security for his family. 
    Dan was a loving husband to Karen Houston Tebbs and a devoted father of six children. He is survived by his wife Karen; children: Daniel Craig (Lisa) Tebbs, Susan (Brian) Hadley, Tracee Tebbs, Kathleen (Randy) Mecham Johnson, Jennifer (Nate) Moos, and Douglas Joseph (Mary) Tebbs; 26 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren; siblings: Veda Hale, Louis (Lolly) Tebbs, and Joyce (Kent) Miller; brothers-in-law, Michael Gottfredson, Robert Judd. He was preceded in death by his parents Daniel Asay Tebbs and Nedra Henrie Tebbs; granddaughter, Camille Nelson; siblings: Janice Gottfredson, Lucinda Ruth Judd; brother-in-law, Glen Hale.   
    His family meant everything to him, and his love and support knew no bounds. He always gave sound advice and guidance to his children and others he served. He enjoyed family gatherings, especially at his beloved Panguitch Tebbs Ranch, where the family created lasting memories that will be cherished by all.   
    Professionally, Dan had a successful career as an electrical engineer for Sandia National Laboratories, where he worked for over 30 years in Albuquerque, NM and Tonopah, NV.  He was respected by his colleagues and admired for his dedication and expertise in his work.
    He was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,  demonstrating his commitment to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serving  those in need. He served his church throughout his life, including many years as branch president of the Panguitch Lake Branch.  He also served an 18 month mission with Karen in the Rancho Cucamonga California Mission.  
    In his younger years, Dan spent his leisure time playing sports and coaching his children’s athletic teams.  He also found fulfillment in taking care of his family farm and ranch.  The family ranch which was started by his grandfather, Fielding Burnes Tebbs, is a legacy that he worked hard to continue. 
    He was particularly known for being able to solve difficult problems.  He shared his skills with his family and others in need, often imparting his wisdom to those around him. 
    Dan leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and community spirit that will be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and all whose lives he touched.
