Donald H. Daniel
Donald Hayes Daniel, 82, of Remlik, went home on Sunday, August 5, 2012.
Born January 13, 1930, Daniel was one of seven children to Emory Jefferson and Ada B. Powell Daniel.
Donald was an Army veteran serving his tour of duty in Germany and he was a member of Urbanna United Methodist Church. Growing up on Montague Island in Jamaica, Donald followed in his fathers footsteps and began his life-long work as a waterman. Not one to give much regard to the weather, he worked long hours on the waters he knew so well providing for his family. As his father did for him, Donald passed on his knowledge and skills of the water to his son, Dwight. Donald had a strong faith in God, and love for his family and was always there for them.
He leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Lois; one daughter, Delores Newman, and her husband Chris; son, Dwight, and his wife Gina; three stepsons, David Williams, Keith Williams and his wife Patricia, and Guy Williams and his wife Abby; four grandchildren, Emory Daniel, Allen, Donnie and Becky Newman; and five step-grandchildren, Davie, Brandon, Kelly, Thomas and Petie Williams.
Visitation will be held at Bristow-Faulkner Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Saluda, on Tuesday, August 7 (tonight), from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The funeral service will be on Wednesday, August 8, at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Interment will follow at Remlik Memorial Gardens with military honors.
