Daniel Fancher Yaeger Aarhus, age 28 went to his heavenly home on August 27, 2020. He passed away at Baylor Scott White Hospital in Round Rock, Texas. Daniel grew up in Tuscaloosa and was currently residing in Jarrell, Texas with his wife Mallory. To know Daniel was to know love. He was a bright young man who brought a smile to everyone around him. He was blunt but honest; funny but serious; and the most loving person. Daniel will forever be remembered for his heart for Jesus and his heart to serve. He had a passion for the next generation. He was a light in a dark room and no matter his storm he was always intentional to share the Gospel. Daniel was a leader and didn't need a title to tell him that, he was able to walk with joy through the toughest situations life can offer. He loved his wife deeply and unconditionally.
