In Memory of

Paul E. McDaniel

March 9, 1962 - May 24, 2021
From: Cherokee, IA

Paul Earnest McDaniel son of Richard and Phyllis( r o h r b o u g h) was born March 9th 1962 his childhood days were spent in Peterson/ Sutherland area where he attended school. As a young boy, Paul enjoyed fabricating anything with wheels and a motor to make it his own style. He learned all of his special skills from his dad and carried them throughout his life.

  Paul lived a full life in a short time riding the Bulls for the barn Rodeo, running the stock car at the Figure 8 races in Primghar, a passion he shared with his dad and brothers. He enjoyed many different hobbies, artifact and rock hunting, singing playing guitar, and kayaking name a few, but Paul felt most alive when he was riding his custom made 98 Road King which always let his special style shine through.

 He was always willing to help people out whether it was a friend or a complete stranger. He could rig anything up to get them going again he referred to himself as "That Guy " he made his living for many years driving the 18 wheelers another passion he shared with his dad, brothers, and his favorite uncle Bill. Driving semi didn't seem to be enough to fill Paul’s thirst for life so he ended up wearing several different hats. The one hat he wore the proudest was his dad hat and then of course his Grandpa Mac hat. He loves his family very much.

 On March 24th 2021 Paul's soul was freed from the cancer and is at peace with his parents and infant daughter, Jacqueline Louise; his favorite uncle, Bill Norman Larson; and his beloved dog Max.

 Left to cherish his memories and keep his stories alive siblings, Jim and Shirley McDaniel, Richie and his family, Lynn and Joe Weber, Jeanne and Gerald Peterson; his children, Shane, Megan, and Jordan; his six granddaughters, Constance, Aubrey, Vivian, Victoria, Violet, and Meredith; his nieces, nephews and cousins his family of special friends Clay, Mike (Mouse),Tom, Bruce, Lori, Colleen(Coke), Kellie, LaRea ,Lea his pups, Gema and Bella, plus White Clouds array of many many friends RIP Pauly Mac.

“I was so sorry to hear of Paul's death. He was a good worker and a friend. He could make anyone laugh and always had a joke. He had a great laugh also. May he rest in peace and I send my sympathies to all his family members and special friends. He will see his mom and dad again in heaven.”
