Prayers are extended to the family and friends of Elder Daniel Adderley during this time of lost.
Elder Daniel N. Adderley was born on May 1st, 1933 in Burnt Ground, Long Island. After the Mac and Mac Crusade that was led by Pastors L.V. McMillan and S. N McKinney, Elder Adderley joined the Johnson Park Seventh Day Adventist Church 50 years ago. He immediately commenced serving as a Deacon under Bro. E.E. Ferment and was given the nick name ‘Deac”. Elder Adderley was a faithful servant of Christ and committed Christian who lived and labored intensely for the Lord. He truly believed that the harvest was plentiful, but the laborers were few. Therefore, he joyfully served in every capacity in the SDA church and was a serving Elder and Sabbath School Teacher until the time of his demise for more than 3 decades. As a building contractor, he also steadfastly labored in a physical capacity to see the new Johnson Park SDA church completed. Most importantly, Elder Adderley had a personal relationship with God. To him every day with his Jesus was sweeter than the day before. He loved the Lord dearly and he lived with the hope of spending eternity with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
He was a gentleman, a peacemaker, an optimist, and a biblical scholar who was committed to his family. He was a loving husband, devoted father, and dedicated his life to providing for his family. We have the blessed hope that we will be reunited with our husband, father, and brother in the earth made new, never more to part again. Until that great day, let us all be faithful and remember his watch words: “brother be faithful soon Jesus will come.”
