Daniel was a cherished son, brother and vital member of the community. He touched so many lives in ways most can’t imagine. He once said he was called to help people and that’s what he did. He was selfless, dependable, compassionate, humble, and loyal. He loved with all he had. Daniel was dedicated to his personal ministry for individuals and sobriety, as well as his work with the Potter County GOP Republican Party of which he was Treasurer. He had the respect of his colleagues and those he ministered to. He will be greatly missed.
Daniel was a dedicated member of Alcoholics Anonymous Top of Texas. He was a cherished and loyal friend to many people as well as a great inspiration to everyone around him. Daniel lived to help people to bring fruit to their own lives.
Some of those colleagues had a few words to contribute below.
