Ricky Eldon Danielson

Ricky Eldon Danielson was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota February 27, 1952. He passed away July 24, 2013 at his home in Cottonwood, Arizona. Rick lived in Omaha, Nebraska for 26 years where he was a partner in Verne Simmonds Company.  He later moved to Cottonwood  in 2001 and worked for J&B Sales as a manufacturer’s rep until he retired in 2011. Rick lived his life like he was on a pony ride; you never know where the pony is going to take you. Someone remarked “if you met Rick, you never forgot him – he loved his family, life and people".  Rick is survived by his wife, Dorothy; his daughter, Sonya Danielson; his son, Eric Danielson; his sister, Lona Mahon, and his brothers, Jon Danielson and Todd Danielson; his brother and sister in laws, Laurie and Jim Clark, Edie and Mike Julik, Leo and Ann Rosenstein and his nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the American Cancer Society.
A memorial service for Ricky will be held on July 27, 2013. Family and friends are to meet at the Bergan Lutheran Church at 4pm and will then carpool to the memorial service location near the Missouri River.

I have only known Rick a very short time but in that time I saw a man who loved his family very much and worked hard all his life. Meeting Rick and his wife Dorothy was my privilege and I am thankful to have met such a wonderful couple. Rick was such a character, during our visit we joked about many things and one of them being about his memorial service. He told me that no memorial was necessary. I politely agreed and replied that a traditional memorial didn't seem to fit his personality but a celebration of his life would be more fitting. The kind of celebration where his loved ones could reminisce about the good ole days and enjoy a cold drink while all the good memories flooded back to them. He said to me with a twinkle in his eye "That's more like it." Rick, I hope you watch from afar as your family and friends gather to celebrate the great man they all knew and loved. May you rest in peace at your final destination, I know the scenery will be spectacular! May The Lord Bless you and your family with all your love and memories for all eternity. Much love, Janell
