Stuart D. Daniels was born June 18, 1966 in Portland Oregon. He passed away August 1, 2019 succumbing to complications arising from end stage liver disease. Stuart is survived by his Ex-wife, Kimberly Daniels, Son Ryan and daughter Jenna Daniels of Scottsdale Arizona, Father Douglas Daniels and step mother Sara (Sally Daniels) of Gilbert Arizona, mother Kitty Miller of Boise Idaho, Sister Kendahl Haldi, nieces Mackenzie and Reagan Haldi and nephew Nolan Haldi of Boise, Idaho. He attended high school at Pinetop Lakeside Arizona, Mesa Community College in Mesa Arizona and graduated from Bethany College, Kansas in 1989 with a degree in accounting and economics. Stuart started his career as a life insurance agent at Transamerica Life Companies in 1990 under General Manager Marjorie Benedict-Holman. When she purchased the agency from Transamerica, Stuart became brokerage manager assuming a much greater role in the industry. He excelled in this position and quickly learned the vast amount of information necessary for higher level sales and turned his attention to serving wire houses. One of his role models was Jack Hogan, an old time family friend and a general agent. In 2015 Stuart started his own agency, Southwest Life Solutions with his partner Steven Bischoff. Stuart was always quick with a joke and usually the center of attention when he entered a room. He was very loved and respected by so many friends and colleagues. He loved to golf, ski, enjoy a cocktail and sing. He could remember musical lyrics and movie dialogue from years ago. His impression of Elvis was legendary. Stuart was truly "one of a kind" and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. His attitude was "Make it a Great Day" and he died as he lived, surrounded by family and close friends.
