Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Dan and Esther have been friends for a long time and we have fond memories of our school years and visits with them and Including a camping trip at South Fork with his folks, replete with a fishing expedition. Though we have not had a lot of contact in recent years, Dan’s passing is a bit out of the blue and we will miss him and his spirit.

  2. Daniel was my classmate at Stinnett High School. Even though I did not know him well I knew him to be a quiet and kind person. I am saddened by the loss of a good man of God and a treasured family man. My deepest sympathies are extended to you all. “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” – Philemon 4:7

  3. Daniel was a year ahead of me at Stinnett High School where we were both in band. I will always remember Daniel as a very sweet and caring person. I did not realize that he had become a pastor, but I’m not at all surprised.
    My thoughts and prayers are with each member of Daniel’s family.

  4. I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Daniel at Innotrac for the past 8 years. He was a wonderful man, a caring friend, and a valuable employee. He loved to pass the time away talking about his family and especially fishing. He was also a person that you could look to for advise or just an ear to listen. I have never met a man more dedicated to his job than Daniel. Words cannot express how much he will be missed by so many…My love, thoughts and prayers go out to all his family in the sad time….Daniel, my friend, you will be deeply missed but never forgotten!!!!

  5. I worked with Daniel for 7 years. Most of those in a shared office. He was the one person who was happy that I would make coffee in the afternoon. I think we were the only two who would drink it all day. I was fortunate enough to have him be my secret Santa twice in those years and both times he gave me the best Christmas blend coffee. I enjoyed talking and working with Daniel. He spoke of his family often, especially the grandchildren. He was a meticulous worker and a pleasure to talk to. He was an honest, wonderful man who touched the lives of many. To his family -prayers and love to all of you.
    Rest in Peace Mr. Searcy- you will be missed.

  6. Daniel was a first class person who loved the loved The Lord and shared that love with those around him. Though I haven’t seen him in years, I have fond memories of my time with he and Ester at Western Bible College. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, Ester. Mary Mathis, Wheatland, WY
