Daniel’s Inventory Control Family grieves the loss alongside his family. We EACH felt a special closeness with Daniel. Since he moved to Texas and now even more recently, we have all shared a special moment we each had with Daniel. We all kept in touch with Daniel because of our years of shared experiences. One theme that has been present in each of the shares is that his sense of humor was always on display. Like his Family, we will miss our regular communications with Daniel and his infectious traits, sense of humor and respectful sharing of solutions. As suggested, we donated to the Fair Haven Children’s Home on Daniel’s behalf. Patricia, Terri, Stephanie, Will, Janet and Michael

Like so many, I feel the loss that Daniel has left behind. It was an absolute pleasure to see Daniel grow and mature over the years as we worked aside him. As much as he was a work mate, I also always considered him a friend and a younger sibling. Daniel was always willing to improve, as much as he was also willing to offer well-thought-out solutions when faced with complex hurdles. I feel all of us who shared in his orbit were enriched. Here in Fulton, we were saddened when he left our part of the world, but we were equally proud of Daniel for imagining something perhaps larger and certainly willing to explore the unknown with his courage. All I heard was favorable comments on how the Texas Distribution Center was favored by having Daniel join their team.
At this point, as we all feel the loss of this extraordinary friend, we should remember Daniel as the humorous, yet serious friend and mate he always was to us all in the fondest terms as we keep him and his family in our most heartfelt prayers.

Daniel was the first friend I ever made when my family and I moved to Jefferson City in Lawson Elementary School. That was a very hard time for me because my family and I just moved from the East Coast and I had to leave all those other friends behind. I can’t believe how much time has passed.
He and I were also competing with each other in video games for much of our lives and I always enjoyed that.
I loved visiting you when you left for college in Kirksville, no matter how long of a drive it was.
I remember speeding all the way there one time because I didn’t want to take too long to get there.
Then when I moved to Columbia to go to MU for a year, you were already there. We used to rent GameCube games from Movie Gallery and have a great time in my dorm. We had the place to ourselves because my roommate only stayed for a semester. You were the best friend I had on campus where I was otherwise alone among a sea of thousands.
I loved having you as a part of my wedding years later. I’m so honored I got to introduce you to my girlfriend who later became my wife and to have you around.
I think back on all the times you and I competed in Star Fox 64 to see who was the best pilot or see who could get the highest score. I don’t remember who it was, but I always felt we were equals.
You were always such a joy I be around and I wish I could have been more a part of your life in recent years, but I am glad you were able to find happiness in a match in your life.
God, I miss you so much.
