Aug. 4, 2001 - Apr. 4, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY Daniel August Ferguson passed into peace Thursday evening, April 4th. Beloved son and brother, warrior and lover of life, he accepted and overcame each difficulty in his life and always gave love unconditionally. He truly appreciated life. He brought us a positive message, he lived that message, and he will be greatly missed. To those who loved him--his family, teachers, advocates, caregivers, and his many friends--please know you have not cared in vain. Daniel will always be there for you. Daniel is survived by brothers Richard and Robert Ferguson III and sister Katrina Crossland, brother-in-law Mike Crossland; nephews and niece Jeffrey, Joel, and Camille Crossland; parents Rob and Kathleen Ferguson; grandmothers Mary Anne Reed and Molly Ferguson and grandfather Don "Popsy" Reed; and many loving cousins, aunts, and uncles. His service of celebration will be held at St. John's Episcopal Church, 5401 N. Brookline, Oklahoma City, at 2:00 p.m. Saturday April 13 with a reception following. Those wishing to honor him through donations may consider the Easter Seals Foundation, St. John's Episcopal Organ Restoration Fund, or public radio station KCSC in Edmond, OK.
