He married the former Donna Long on January 30, 1970 at the Kane Baptist Church, and together they shared 49 years of marriage before her death on March 6, 2019.
He and his wife, Donna enjoyed camping in their spare time, and as of late, if you could keep him stocked in Diet Dr. Pepper you would certainly climb to the top of his list.

In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by four sisters, Judy Ann Daniels, Camilla Waltrip, Nevada Lay and Loretta Drake; and three brothers, George Daniels, Richard Daniels and Loren Clifford Daniels.
Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday at Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville.
