Arthur Daniel Nafziger Obituary

from Kent, Kentucky, United States


Nafziger, Arthur Daniel "Dan" II,60, of Louisville, Kentucky, passed away on the evening of November 25, 2016. He was surrounded by those he loved and those who loved him. Dan was born on March 26, 1956 in Bloomington, Illinois to Arthur and Marjorie Nafziger. He graduated from Central Catholic High School in Bloomington, Illinois in 1974 and went on to obtain his degrees in Agriculture and Finance from Illinois State University, where he was also a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. He had a long and successful career in Agribusiness and Finance before retiring earlier this year. He worked for both MetLife Agriculture Insurance and Aegon USA. Dan married his beautiful wife, Sandra Kay West, in 1984 and they had three children; Ryan Daniel (b. 1990), Mary Grace (b. 1992), and Derek William (b. 1997). Dan was an active member of his church, Our Lady of Lourdes, a member of the Illinois Agriculture Leadership Foundation, and served as treasurer for the Woods of St. Thomas Homeowner's Association. In addition, he played the voice of Freddy Farm Bureau every year at the Kentucky State Fair. Finally, he was an avid Louisville Cardinal fan and an enthusiastic tennis player and golfer. Dan will be remembered for his unbelievable sense of humor, his ability to have a conversation with everyone he met, and his ability to tell the same joke thousands of times without it becoming stale. He was preceded in death by his father, Arthur, and his mother, Marjorie. He is survived by his wife, Sandy; his three children, Ryan, Mary Grace, and Derek; and his seven siblings, Martha Hillmer (Robert), John Nafziger (Barb), Jane Winters (Mike), Rita Nafziger (Mark Sokolik), Alice Benga (Mike Diehl), Paul Nafziger (Ellen), and LeAnna Mutchler (Rick).
