As the nation recognizes Leukemia Awareness Month, Catoosa County residents mourn the loss of one who lost his battle with the cancer.
Danny Eiler died Monday, Aug. 25, at the age of 30. He had battled leukemia for three years, but his rapid decline came as a shock for most loved ones.
Eiler was part of The Springs church for seven years, first joining as the new youth pastor and later becoming head pastor. He stepped in when the church needed a pastor most, and The Springs made it through some major difficulties under his leadership.
