Rodeo was always a big part of Daniel's life. Anyone
who knew Daniel or met him for the first time soon
realized he was a cowboy in every way.  

Daniel died on August 7, 2005 from injuries sustained
at a PRCA rodeo on August 6. He was 19.   

The night before he died, he lived one of his dreams.  
He had drawn D & H Cattle Company's bucking bull
Crossfire Hurricane at the Idaho Falls PRCA Rodeo.  
Just to have the chance to put his rope on this great
bull had him on cloud 9.   Though he did not ride
Crossfire for eight seconds, he sure gave him heck for
about five.  He told a television reporter that night
while being interviewed on television, “This is what I
do. I'm going to keep doing it until I can't do it

After being interviewed, two young boys asked him
for his autograph, a first at a pro-rodeo.  Daniel pulled
off his number from his vest, then asked them “What
was your favorite event?”  They both replied “Bull
Riding.”  When he realized that he need something to
sign for the other young boy, he crawled under the
walkway to pickup a discarded number and signed it.  
Their faces were beaming and they were so excited.

This rodeo only happens because of the outstanding
corporate support through sponsorships and ticket
sales from those who attend the rodeo every year.
This event is a labor of love not only for his family, but
for the committee members and the countless
volunteers, many who are family or friends of Daniel.

It is our goal and commitment to continue doing good
things in his hometown and giving our community the
opportunity to celebrate his life and the sport he so
