Obituary of Dante K. Person

Mr. Dante K. Person passed away on September 7, 2021. Dante was born to Brian and Kirsten Person on November 16, 2004.

Dante Person was an avid student who loved math and chemistry and was on track to pursue a degree in astrophysics with a 4.4 GPA. He attended Blythewood High School, where he was on the honor roll and in the honor society. In addition, he was a helpful person who volunteered at homeless shelters in his free time. Dante loved to spend time with his family and enjoyed family game night. Dante loved being the best big brother he could be, always ready to teach and play. Dante also loved playing video games, writing poetry, writing short stories, and playing the flute in his middle school band. Dante will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and classmates.

Dante is survived by his mother, Kirsten Person; his father, Brian Person; his brother, Corbin Person; his cousins, Seyon Clea, Jakhi Clea, and Brayden Clea; his aunts, Tasha Jones (“TT”) and Shauntai Person Clea (Terance); his grandparents, Carolyn Jones (“GiGi”), Nancy Person (“Nana”), and Joe Person (“Papa”); and a multitude of cousins, great aunts and uncles, and friends.
