October 10, 1959 — February 10, 2018

Charles Daniel "Gilly" Sloan, 58, of Charleston, passed away, February 10, 2018, surrounded by family and friends.

Danny was born in Charleston on October 10, 1959 to the late Charles and Katherine Sloan.

He graduated from Stonewall Jackson High School "Class of 1978" and was currently employed by Goodwill Industries and the Fraternal Order of Eagles as a custodian. He previously owned and operated "Gilligan's" night club and the "Country Junction Restaurant" in Charleston. He also invested in real estate.

Gilly was an avid sports fan who was always watching some sort of sports on TV. He occasionally enjoyed placing a wager to make it more interesting to watch.  He loved playing golf and played whenever the opportunity presented itself and also enjoyed throwing darts at Denver's Depot where he was a regular.
He enjoyed and often told the story of his father taking him to Cincinnati on the train to watch the Reds play baseball when he was a little fellow.  He would talk about how he enjoyed the train ride and spending that quality time with  his Dad.  Gilly enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest.  He never met a stranger and had a smile that was infectious.  He knew scores of people and was liked and loved by all.

Gilly was a loving father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and loyal friend who is survived by his children, Danny Ray Sloan and Tiffany Sloan, special niece Tisha Gravely, brother, Charley Ferrell, seven grandchildren, nieces, nephews and close friend and confidant, Carolyn Smith.
