On May 13, 2015 Dr. Danny Bruce Kilpatrick, 66, passed away after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer.
Danny was born to Ercel Leon Kilpatrick and Dorothy Altrude Woodard on October 13, 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He was raised in Charleston along with his older brother Kenneth and younger siblings Kathy, Lynn, and Joey.
Danny went on to graduate from Brigham Young University and the Medical University of South Carolina. He was a board certified radiologist with a passion for what he did. At the time of his passing, Danny was the Chief of Radiology at the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center. He found his place there twenty years ago. He was happy to get to spend each day working with his fellow doctors and co-workers whom he cared for and greatly respected. Danny loved serving the veterans and giving back to those who have sacrificed to protect our country.
Danny was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On February 6, 1982, Danny married Eldene Dahle in the Logan, Utah temple. Together, they raised their six children in Mesa, Arizona. Danny was always a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. His greatest joys came from time spent with his family whom he loved with his whole heart. Through example, Danny taught his family about faith, service, courage, determination, generosity, and devotion.
Danny will be greatly missed by his wife, Eldene, his children, Terri Lyn Patterson (Jim), Michael Boyd Plowman (Lori), Robert Neil Plowman (Brenda), Kristen Rae Bowen (Seth), Daniel Dean Kilpatrick, Dena Anne Kilpatrick, his 18 grandchildren, and his 2 great grandsons.
The Kilpatrick Family would like to express heartfelt gratitude to the exceptional doctors, nurses, and staff at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center and the HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center. The wonderful care and kindness extended to both Danny and his family will forever be appreciated.
