Obituary for Dr. John Anthony Dante

Dr. John A. Dante was born in 1933 in San Francisco to parents John Antone Dante and Rea Onita (Street) Dante. He died at home at the age of 85 on 5 January 2019.

He was raised in Florence, Oregon where he graduated high school in 1952. He attended University of Oregon and graduated with a DMD degree from the U of O Dental School in 1959. He established his dental office in McMinnville, Oregon where he practiced for 23 years and was a member of the Lions Club. He later opened an office in Florence, Oregon where he practiced dentistry for another 10 years. Following retirement he and his wife returned to McMinnville where they have lived the past 11 years.

He was a devoted husband to his wife of 63 years, Jeannine (Worthylake) Dante, loving father, grandfather and great grandfather and was dearly loved by all. He was a man of faith. Hunting, fishing and camping with family were among his favorite past times.
