Arthur A (Tony) Daringer was born January 28, 1942, in Hebron, NE, to Arthur John Daringer and Lois Katherine (Hergott) Daringer, and died Monday January 31st, in Bayard NE after a long battle with cancer.
Tony’s Catholic faith was always very important to him. He received the sacraments of baptism, his first Holy communion and confirmation at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hebron, NE.
As a young boy, he lived with his family on a farm outside of Hebron and attended Sacred Heart Catholic Elementary School and public high school in Hebron until he graduated in 1960. In 1961 Tony attended K-State and in 1962 attended Fairbury Junior College then in 1964 he joined the Army National Guard.
January 7th, 1967, Tony married Judith Lynn (Casey) Daringer – the love of his life – and was blessed with a large loving family of 9 children. The couple farmed and ranched in eastern Nebraska then in 1983 moved to Gordon while Tony worked for National Farmers Organization (NFO).
Tony was a very successful cattle buyer who impacted many ranches, enabling him to make lifelong friendships all over the world.
The love that Tony had for horses ran deep. He could talk for hours about blood lines and his Skipper W Horses.
Tony is survived by his children Judd (Jodi) Daringer of Gordon, Kim (Aaron) Engelhaupt of Greely CO, Hudd (Bobbie) Daringer of Gordon, Theresa (Andy) Stutts of Colorado Springs CO, Heather (Chad) Cary Evans Co, Becky (Kerry) Wynne of Gering, Justin (Nikki) Daringer of Chadron, Brett Shively of Bedford TX, 22 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and siblings Karen (Dean) Hume of Lincoln, Marilyn (Don) Hooper of Omaha, Don (Linda) Daringer of Lincoln.
