Daniel Eidt, 34, passed away March 1. He was born Jan. 18, 1979, to William "Bill" and Louretta Eidt in Houston, Texas.
Daniel will be fondly remembered for his cunning wit, verbal bantering, and sharp mind. He loved his children, Drew -Drew, Lexi Lou, and Anna Bug, and delighted in spending every minute he could with them. Daniel was a member of the First Pentecostals of Benton. He cared deeply for people as evidenced by his career choice in the nursing field and his work in recent years as an NA sponsor.
Daniel attended the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and graduated with a degree as a registered nurse. He worked for the Arkansas Heart Hospital for several years and most recently was working for St. Vincent Rehabilitation. Daniel's life touched many people and he would want those people to continue to live life with purpose and laughter.
Daniel was preceded in death by his father, William Dale "Bill" Eidt Jr.; his maternal grandparents, Theodore "Big Bear" and Lois Sky-Eagle; and paternal grandparents, William Dale Eidt Sr. and Agatha Marie Eidt.
To cherish his memory, he leaves behind three beautiful children, Andrew Daniel, Alexandria Dawn and Anna Brooke, all of Benton; his mother, Louretta Eidt of Benton; his brother, David Eidt and wife Jamie; and their children, Ethan and Logan of Wynne; a sister, Diann Crouse and husband Jeremy and their children Austin and Emily of Benton; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members as well as many friends who loved him dearly and will miss him always.
