Wayne G. McDaniel


Wayne G. McDaniel, founder of Coast Doors at the original Bellflower location, went home to Heaven on September 14, 2018. "Uncle Wayne," as he was fondly known by those of us at SCID who had the privilege of knowing him, will always be remembered with great affection. We will reflect on the wonderful memories we have of a man who exuded kindness and faithfulness in all that he did, and will continue to run SCID in a way the would have made him proud. We offer the family of Wayne and all who adored him, our heartfelt support and love.

My sweetheart, Wayne G. McDaniel, 87, passed from this life to his Heavenly reward Friday, September 14, 2018. Wayne was born December 6, 1930 in Amarillo, TX to Earl and Lea Etta “Brown” McDaniel.

Wayne had many loves: Hawaii, sports, the Los Angeles Lakers and Kansas City Chiefs and water skiing, but his love for God was his greatest legacy. 

He was a man whose big strong hands could fix anything, and he was happiest when he taught someone to waterski. He was bigger than life, never met a stranger and was always the first to lend a hand.

Our love story began many years ago in Yuma, AZ. He married Stella Mae Thompson on January 8, 1950. My sweetheart and I built a life together with God at the Center.Wayne is also survived by one son, Russell McDaniel (Yvette) of Joplin; one daughter-in-law, Deanna McDaniel of Webb City; six grandchildren, Rachelle Hafer, Kary Vaughn, Jessica Taylor, Christian McDaniel, William McDaniel and Andrew McDaniel; many great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild; one sister, Redonna Cuneo; and many extended nieces and nephews.

Wayne is preceded in death by one son, Randy McDaniel; one granddaughter, Katy Weathers; one brother, E.J. McDaniel; and one sister, Thema Fornelli.

Services will be held at 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at Grace Point Assembly of God, 1605 S. Baker St. in Carthage. Visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday, September 17, 2018, also at Grace Point. Burial will be at Oak Hill Cemetery in Carthage.
