Dawn Dot Star passed away on March 29 2017 at the Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dawn was born in Michigan on August 29, 1951 and raised in the Detroit area.

He had been an area resident of both Ruth and Ely before moving to Las Vegas in 2014. He could be seen daily walking his beloved dog Tookie around town no matter the weather. An avid painter, he enjoyed the Northern Nevada country-side and especially the steam engine which he depicted in many of his works.

His most proud moment was having his work displayed by the Nevada Arts Council at the Capital in Carson City in May of 2015.

Dawn has been cremated. No services are planned.
