Ernest Kenneth Daniel, 89, of Corpus Christi, TX, passed away January 20, 2020. He was born in Breckenridge Hospital in Austin, TX on September 14, 1930.

Kenneth graduated from Corpus Christ High School and received a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Texas A&I, and a Masters from the University of Alabama. He was married to the love of his life Barbara Lois Thomas on September 12, 1948. Kenneth had a career in education as a math teacher for Ella Barnes Jr High and Mary Carroll High School. He retired in 1990. He was a member of Kings Crossing Church of Christ, and the Special Olympics Bowling Team (with his grandson Crid) and had a passion for family. In addition to the family Friday night games, he enjoyed playing dominoes Saturday mornings with Uncle Johnny and Evalynn. He was always available to tutor family and friends to help pass high school and college math. Even after 71 years of marriage he couldn’t keep his eyes off his bride. When he joined Lois at the nursing home, he requested for his bed to be moved so he could gaze at her. Due to the fire code he wasn’t allowed to do this. He loved meeting up with his retired teacher friends every week for lunch. If you knew Kenneth, then you knew Crid. They did everything together.

He was preceded in death by: Ernest Daniel (Father), Eunice Daniel (Mother) and Susan Shores (Daughter).

He is survived by: Lois Daniel –Wife, Becky Boswell –Daughter, Crid Lewis –Grandson, Heather (& Allen) Price –Granddaughter, Rusty Boswell –Grandson, Erin Shores –Granddaughter, Tracy (& Pete) Posas –Granddaughter, Kenneth Boswell –Grandson, Ella Price and Daniel Price (Great Grandchildren), Lillie Posas and Scarlett Posas (Great Grandchildren).

My deepest sympathy to the family of Ken Daniels. I worked with Ken at Carroll High School. He was such a nice man, a true gentleman. He loved his family and often spoke of them when he attended our Carroll retired luncheons. His family was his life and I know all of you will miss him. I just remember him as a kind gentleman and a good friend. He was kind to everyone and I never heard him say anything negative about anyone. I know you are very proud of the person he was and you should be. Again, my deepest sympathy. The world has lost a very good man and we need more people just like him. Eileen Champine
