Gerald “Jerry” E. Daniels, 75, of Buffalo, MN left this world for the arms of Jesus on October 1, 2016. Jerry grew up with his twin brother Gary in Quincy, MI. With both boys having severe Hemophilia in the early 40’s and 50’s they persevered through struggles that come with hemophilia. However, their mother and father, David and Marie Daniels, allowed them to experience life growing into men of love, compassion, and strength.

Jerry married his love, Lola M. Pierce on June 18, 1966 and lived in Girard, MI. They had 2 daughters, Tamara (Keesling) and Traci (Drake).

He began his career as a draftsman for Eaton Corp in Marshall, MI. In 1981 Eaton Corp. moved them to Buffalo, MN and he continued his career with Eaton Corp in Eden Prairie, MN, retiring after 28 years.

Jerry enjoyed his grandchildren, Ashley, Brittany, Cara, Kathryn, and Andrew. He was amazed with his great-grandchildren, Brennen, Aubree, and Willow. He loved working in his workshop making birdfeeders, birdhouses, toy trucks, and so much more. He enjoyed yearly trips to MI to see family and enjoy a bit of fishing.

Jerry is survived by his wife of 50 years, Lola; daughters, Tamara Keesling (Bruce) and Traci Drake; mother, Marie Daniels; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; niece, nephews, and many extended family and friends. He now joins his father, David Daniels and twin brother, Gary; many aunts, uncles, and cousins who preceded him in death.

He will be missed and we grieve the loss of him in our lives, and we celebrate the joy of him being in the arms of Jesus.

Services will be Friday, October 7, 2016 at 11:00 am. at River of Life Christian Church, 170 Main Avenue West, Winsted, MN 55349. Cards and flowers can be sent in care of River of Life Christian Church 170 Main Avenue West, PO Box 515, Winsted, MN 55395

Jerry will be returned home to Quincy, MI for interment at a later date.

    We met at work. It was an honor to have Jerry as a friend. I remember him hauling water to all of those newly planted trees in Buffalo.
