Life sketch Taken from the Funeral Bulletin
Daryl Kent Fadenrecht was born in Salem, Oregon on June 13, 1950, the only child of Rev. Albert and Virginia (Harman) Fadenrecht. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord at the age of four, and was baptised upon his confession of faith by his father.
Daryl was raised in numerous communities as his father’s pastorates led them from Salem, Oregon to Gladwin and Warren, Michigan, to Buffalo, New York and to Killaloe, Ontario, Canada. His mother was an accomplished musician so music played a significant role in Daryl’s formative years. She taught him how to play the violin, and the two played duets at church events. The violins that each of them owned were hand-made by his grandfather, Lauren E. Harman. His mother gave him piano lessons, and encouraged him to sing. He participated in vocal music into his adult years. After graduation from high school, he attended Tabor College for three semesters. While at Tabor College he served as a student assistant for the football team, hustling to meet needs at practices and during games. Upon ending his time at college, he then remained in Ontario with his parents. One of his activities in Ontario was to again serve as a manager for varsity athletics at Algonquin College during the 1972-73 school year.
Daryl found employment in Ontario with Pinkerton security services, as a security guard. When his parents retired from the pastorate and relocated to Hillsboro, Kansas in 1978, Daryl continued his employment with Pinkerton for two more years. He then joined his parents in Hillsboro for a short time, before finding similar employment in Wichita in 1980.
The Immanuel Baptist Church of Wichita is where Daryl began attending regularly upon moving to Wichita. Here he exercised his vocal music interests by participating with the choir and singing solos on occasion. While attending the career-aged class, fellow class member, Marilyn Stagner, caught his eye. After positive exchanges of conversation at a volleyball event, Daryl arranged for a young couples outing for Mother’s Day, 1982, and asked Marilyn to accompany him for the event. She accepted! The outing turned out to be more of a double date as only one other couple ended up participating, but this may have worked to Daryl’s advantage. The two united in marriage less than eight months later on January 7, 1983.
In the following years, Daryl became employed by Pizza Hut working as an assistant cook and deliveryman. He greatly enjoyed playing golf, watching football, and late-night television. His favorite restaurant was Fat Ernie’s where he loved to order steak or roast beef. Soda pop topped his list of favorite things.
Years later after their wedding, Daryl and Marilyn attended Messiah Baptist Church. Daryl participated in the ministry named “Judgement House”. While at a rehearsal one evening in 2002 he suffered a stroke which left him debilitated for the remainder of his life. Marilyn also encountered debilitating health issues making it necessary for them to move into a permanent long-term care residency. There they made their life together and remained best friends until the Lord called Daryl home on July 30.
Preceding Daryl in death are his parents, and his father-in-law, Irvin Stagner. Survivors include his beloved wife, Marilyn, mother-in-law, Tressie Stagner, and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Ed and Paula Stagner, Dale and Norma Stagner, and Deanne Stagner.
