Daniel was always kind and helpful to us at the Girl Scout Ranch. He loved “the mule” and took us and our daughter and grandchildren on a tour of the ranch in “the mule”.
He was very well liked in the Angel Fire Community and Moreno Valley. He will be missed at the Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study Group.

Our deepest sympathy to his family and all who loved him. ❤️🙏🏻✝️

Biography

If there was ever a person who wanted to heal all the wrongs in the world, it was Daniel Wilson King. He was an idealist who sought to bring harmony to those around him. Even though Daniel was enthusiastic and generous, it was sometimes difficult for him to boast about his accomplishments. Daniel had strong personal convictions, making it hard for him to relinquish those ideals he held dearest to himself. Despite his outer strengths and beliefs, Daniel sometimes struggled in his efforts to see the world as completely positive. Daniel's life motto was always to hope for the best and work hard towards that end, but be prepared for some of life's disappointments. This philosophy was a continual driving force in his life, but it did not extinguish the bright light that defined the dreamer in Daniel, something that was always there and that he readily shared with everyone around him.
