Pastor Brad Daniels, 51, of Chadron, joined his Savior, Sunday evening, August 26, 2012.
He was born February 28, 1961, in Sioux City, Iowa to Bob and Loretta Daniels. As a child he grew up on an acreage outside of Sioux City and attended Lawton-Bronson public schools. While in school he zeroed in on one of his passions, football. He spent long hours in the gym working hard to instill fear in his opponents. Brad was involved in his church’s youth group, when he wasn’t being ornery and finding trouble. As a freshman, he laid his eyes on a little brunette which he would make his bride. Brad married Susan on Valentine’s Day in 1981. They were blessed with two daughters, Christine Marie, and Lauren Olivia.
Brad was a member of the United States Army, and considered it a privilege and an honor to serve his country. After his honorable discharge from the military, God called him into the ministry. Brad spent twenty-two years of his life pursuing God’s will, pastoring churches in Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska most recently shepherding the flock at First Baptist in Chadron.
Brad had a huge heart and immensely enjoyed the people God placed in his life. He loved watching football, baseball, and racing, and in recent years became a big Rockies fan, attending games with his wife. He was an amazing cook, loved to hunt, had a great sense of humor, hated texting, loved his puppies, had to have his weekly apple-cinnamon donuts, and played Christmas music year round.
Family he left behind include his wife Susan, daughter and son-in-law Christine and Rob Clause, daughter and son-in-law Lauren and Spencer Parish, granddaughter Alyvia Clause, sister Judy Daniels, many nieces and nephews, his four-legged friends Tank and Tiny, and the body of believers at First Baptist Church who will remain family forever.
Those preceding him to Heaven include his mother and father, Loretta and Bob, brother, Ron, sister, Andrea, and his nephew, Todd.
Pallbearers will be Bing Decker, Brian Hawthorne, Bill Hawthorne, Fred Wellnitz, Mike Westerbuhr, Robin Stoops, Harry Riggs, and Jason Winter.
Honorary Pallbearers will be Eddie Perrine, Marsden Peterson, Lloyd Earl, Miles Winchester, and his black lab babies, Tank and Tiny Daniels.
Chamberlain Chapel of Chadron is in charge of arrangements.
