Donald Wayne Daggett Sr.

Saturday, January 16, 2016

Donald Wayne Daggett Sr., 52, of Nevada, Mo., passed from this life on Jan. 14, 2016, at his home. He was born Sept. 8, 1963, in Nevada, the son of Floyd and Mildred Daggett, both of whom have preceded him in death.

"Donnie" as he was known attended school in Nevada graduating with the Class of 1981 where he served as manager of the Nevada Tiger football team. For greater than 15 years he was owner/operator of D&L Taxi in Nevada. He was well known for his caring personality and sense of humor -- he was quite a comedian. When the weather was bad or people were down on their luck he would provide a cab ride free of charge for those in need. He enjoyed model trains in his spare time.

Survivors include his children, Kimberly Daggett, of Fayetteville, Ark., Pearl Daggett, and Donald Daggett Jr., both of Nevada; twin brother, Ron Daggett; and brother, Tommy Daggett; nephews, David and "Dozer"; along with other extended family members and friends.

A memorial service for Donald Wayne Daggett Sr. will be held at 3 p.m., Monday, Jan. 18, at Ferry Funeral Home, in Nevada. A visitation is scheduled from 2 to 3 p.m., just prior to the service also at the funeral home. Interment will follow at a later date in Moore Cemetery, in Nevada.

Contributions may be made to a fund for the family in care of Ferry Funeral Home.
