Dr. M. Harold Daniels, of Boise passed away peacefully at the Paramount Care Center on Aug. 27, 2005. Harold was born on a homestead in Artesia, New Mexico, to Marion Burke and Effie Daniels on Jan. 1, 1918. Soon after birth, the family moved to a cattle ranch at Cherry County in north-west Nebraska. Harold and his younger brother Bert attended Bresee College in Hutchison, Kan., and during that time received calls to preach. At about the same time, he met Edith Johnson at a summer-camp meeting. They were married in Lincoln, Neb., on Dec. 31, 1936, where Harold had been called to pastor his first church, Lincoln Northside Church of the Nazarene. That began a life of ministry together that spanned over six decades. Harold pastored churches in Nebraska, Idaho, Oregon, Colorado, Kentucky, New Mexico, Arizona, and Oklahoma. He also was district superintendent in Illinois and Colorado. He was awarded the doctor of divinity degree from Olivet in 1963. He served on the general board from Olivet in 1963. He served on the general board for the International Church of the Nazarene and board of trustees for four of the Nazarene colleges and universities, Pasadena College (now Point Loma), Olivet, Southern Nazarene University, and Northwest Nazarene University. In addition to his church work, Harold was an avid golfer. He and Edith were members of Columbine Country Club in Columbine, Colo., for over 30 years where he was known as "Doc."

He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Ruth, who died at age two-and-a-half; wife, Edith, who was more than a wife and mother but a true companion and partner in ministry. He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Dr. Bert and Lola Daniels of Oklahoma City, Okla.; step-mother, Mabel Daniels of Nampa, Idaho; daughter and son-in-law Thurl and Floyd Johnson; son and daughter-in-law, Dr. Tharon and Barbara Daniels of Edmond, Okla; four grandchildren, Christal Ann Stump and husband Ron of Flagstaff, Ariz.; Bradley White and wife Shawn of Denver, Colo.; Dr. T. Scott Daniels and wife Debbie of Sachse, Texas; and Christa Woodward and husband Mark of Seattle, Wash.; and 12 great-grandchildren.
