Daniel worked at Eagles for over 35 years. He was a Boy Scout Leader for many years and loved going to camp with his children!
He loved the outdoors, traveling and camping. He loved to work outside in the yard. He enjoyed building birdfeeders and hanging them in the yard to watch all the different kinds of birds. He talked to all his animal friends and he even had names for them! He was an avid White Sox fan until the end! His grandchildren were his everything and gave him the greatest joy!
