Dannie Blythewood

June 3, 1953 ~ April 24, 2022 (age 68)


Born June 3, 1953 in Cleveland, Ohio.  He was the eldest of (4) four Children, born to the union of Leonard and Ella Blythewood, who preceded him in death.   

Dannie attended John Adams High School and would have soon attended his 50th year Class Reunion.

He built strong and lasting friendships at an early age with his distinctive personality, including the Woman he married, Norma Sykes.


Dannie accepted Christ in his Youth and attended St. Phillips Lutheran Church where he was Baptized. He later found his place of Worship with the Mount Olive Baptist Church.


Dannie was an Entrepreneur, known around Greater Cleveland as ‘The Meat Man”.   He was a sharp dresser, loved his Suits and rocked his finger waves and ponytails.  

Oh, and he loved his Cadillacs!


Dannie was preceded in death, unexpectedly, by his son Antuan Teasley but survived by his five remaining children; Robin and Antwaun Teasley, Dannie Jr., Damon and Davon Blythewood.  Dannie is also survived by his siblings; Gary Blythewood, Delvia Lozada and Rickey Blythewood.


Also, (14) fourteen Grandchildren, (7) seven Great Grandchildren, and a host of Nieces, Nephews, Cousins and Friends.

His transition was peaceful, with his loving Family by his side.
