Tad Layne Emanuel

Cedar Rapids

Tad Layne Emanuel, 49, a proud union ironworker, went to party with the Lord on Monday, July 22, 2019. He died with his boots on, doing what he loved -- building windmills. A true cowboy in the sky.
A celebration of his life for his family and friends will be held at a later date. Teahen Funeral Home and Cremation are serving the family.
He is survived by his parents, Kathy and Bill Emanuel; brother, Michael (Bobbie); sister, Sara Durbala (Steve); niece, Karma Durbala; nephews, Dakota Durbala and Ki Nicholas Emanuel; a very special person in his life, Judy Bayer Kohler; and the love of his life, his dog, Cody, whom he called Punkin Pie; and his union brothers whom he touched in life.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
