Daniel was employed at Sharpes Army Depot and retired after 24 years of service. In his younger years he enjoyed traveling with his family, fishing, and camping. He was well known for being the involved dad while his children were growing up. He enjoyed building the high school floats, supporting sport activities, and just being one of the kids. He loved holiday’s; being in the spirit of family togetherness always made him smile. Daniel was a very easy going man and being in his garden enjoying the peacefulness of the humming birds always made him feel at ease.
