Tyrance Eugene Dangerfield, 55 passed peacefully away on September 2, 2021. Dinky as he was affectionately called was born on October 27, 1965, in Kansas City, Kansas to Marion Dangerfield and was the oldest of two sons. Dinky grew up in Bonner Springs, Kansas where he graduated in 1984 from Bonner Springs High School. Dinky attended Donnelly and St. Mary’s Colleges earning a bachelor’s degree in Business.
Dinky accepted Christ at an early age and spent much of his youth singing with several cousins in the family group under the name of the Dangerfield singers. Dinky’s love of gospel music continued throughout his adult years and any who knew him were well versed in his endearing admiration for the Clark sisters.
Dinky worked for the Kansas City Kansas Public School System in transportation for 22 years and shared his love of the Lord daily with his co-workers where he led daily prayers bus #108 affectionately dubbed, “the prayer bus.”
He was selfless and giving to all, especially his mom, brother, nephews, and nieces and was loved by any who met him if only for a moment in time. Family and friends all fondly remember the many times he called and would sing happy birthday blessings to you on your special day.
Dinky was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Wilma Dangerfield; aunts, Frances Harris; and Beverly Weatherspoon.
He leaves to cherish his memories mother, Marion Dangerfield; brother, Terry (Nichole) Harris, Sr. of Kansas City, Kansas; two nephews, Terry Harris, Jr.; and Tahj Harris of Merriam, Kansas; one niece, Shonese Harris of Kansas City, Missouri; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
