Dannie Frank Robertson, of Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas, passed away on April 28, 2018 at the age of 74. Dannie was born in Cone, Texas to Jack and Johnnie Robertson on December 31, 1943. He grew up in Ralls, TX with his brother, Jack D. “Butch”, and graduated from Ralls High School. Dannie then went to Southwestern Oklahoma University College of Pharmacy. He married Dixie Stevens in 1963 and the two later moved to Spur, Texas. There he owned and operated Dan’s Pharmacy for approximately 30 years and spent some time serving on the Spur ISD School Board. They sold the pharmacy in 1997 after Dannie fell ill with cancer. After regaining his health, they moved to Lubbock, Texas where Dannie went to work for Lowes Pharmacy. Dixie died in 2001 and, in 2004, Dannie married Ginger Houston. They moved to Possum Kingdom Lake in 2012 where Dannie worked at the Walmart Pharmacy in Graham. Dannie had an irreverent since of humor until his last day. He had a big heart and was always welcoming no matter who you were. He loved the lake, enjoyed teaching many people to ski over the years, and always had a project.
