Daniel Clayton Conway

July 20, 1941 — December 7, 2023

Daniel Clayton Conway, 82, of New Castle, passed away Thursday, December 7, 2023 at The Addison Place in New Castle. He was born July 20, 1941 in New Castle, a son of the late Clayton M. and Marjorie Helen (Beeson) Conway.

A 1959 graduate of Walter P. Chrysler High School in New Castle, he attended Indiana University. Dan was a proud hammer man at Chrysler Corp in New Castle, retiring after 30 years. After retirement, he served as Henry County Councilman at large, helmed the Wilbur Wright birthplace foundation, and served on the EDC and other local government committees and boards.

He was a life-long member of First Christian Church in Mooreland, Mooreland/Hagerstown Masonic Lodge, and Scottish Rite, and a member of Rotary Club.

As a third-generation auctioneer, Dan owned and operated Conway Auctioneers, started by his grandfather in 1910. He enjoyed bird hunting with his English Setters, fishing, model rocketry, and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was heavily involved in 4-H his entire 12 years of school, and enjoyed playing games, especially Euchre. He also mastered the craft of Maple Syrup making, and to this day his family only uses real Maple syrup! His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he cherished his time with them.

Dan’s family would like to thank The Addison Place for their unending love and support during his stay there. Also, to his special friend, Dottie Long, who gave him friendship, love, and guidance when needed the most.
