Mr. Chase McDaniel

Family. Friends. Football.

These are the things that Chase McDaniel, age 17 of Carrollton, displayed his joy through, but it was his Faith that made him who he was.

Chase was born May 2, 2002 in Carrollton, Georgia, son of Tracy and Kiki McDaniel.

At a young age Chase accepted Christ and exemplified the verse Romans 1:16, For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

He was a member of Crossroads Church where he was active with the student ministry and served in the children’s ministry.

As a senior at Carrollton High School, he was a member of the Trojan Football Team and one of the captains and was a true example of what it means to be Trojan Gold.

Soon after Chase received his diagnosis of cancer, he was quoted as saying “The most important day is today. I try not to think into the future. I try to think about right now.”

During his battle, Chase fought courageously and never wavered in his faith. The way Chase remained positive, continued to encourage and inspire others and ultimately glorify God, will forever be how he will be remembered by those who knew him best.

He is survived by his parents, Tracy and Kiki McDaniel of Carrollton; sisters, Karstyn McDaniel and Sophie McDaniel both of Carrollton; maternal grandparents, Floyd and Brenda Robinson; paternal grandmother, Renetta Ford; paternal great grandparents, Frank and Laura McDaniel; aunt, Ashley Thompson; uncle Brandon Thompson; cousins, MacKenzie Mills and Xavier Thompson.

Chase also leaves behind a host of extended family and many friends who will miss him dearly.

Celebration of Life will be conducted Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 1:00 PM from Crossroads Church. He will be placed in the church at 11:30 AM.

Interment will follow in West Georgia Memorial Park with the Carrollton High School Football Team serving as pallbearers.

The family will receive friends at Martin & Hightower Heritage Chapel on Friday, November 22, 2019 from 12:00 PM until 6:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers and to help carry out Chase’s vision of providing new shoes for children who are less fortunate, monetary donations can be made to: C/O: Chase the Victory at Martin & Hightower Heritage Chapel, P.O. Box 215, Carrollton, GA 30112.

Messages of condolences can be sent to the family at www.martin-hightower.com.
