I had the pleasure of knowing Daniel from the VA. I always enjoyed him coming in every few days to pick up his uniforms. He always had a smile on his face, and a great laugh. I enjoyed his off the wall jokes. I pray that his memory will be a blessing.

Daniel was such a funny guy. He was also the nicest guy. I loved working with him. He always had me laughing about something. His smile would brighten the crappiest day's. We would always talk about our kiddos and what crazy things they had done. He was head over heels for his beautiful daughter. I got the pleasure to see many pictures of them both ever once in a while when I got to see him at work. You will be so miss.

Daniel's Family;

He Loved you all so very much. Allie and Memzie treasure your good memories and hold tight to each other.
Daniel & I worked for 3 yrs in SPS together, we laughed ,got mad, cried and prayed alot together. I think of him as the "All American Boy" ;young off to fulfill his duty. Yet returning with the injuries we do not see, quiet ;yet with a force of a hurricane. God Knows Daniel!
Daniel fought the battles, ones I could not. We all owe him our respect and prayers for his family.
His smile and laughter will be memory I choose to remember. Allie your Daddy is very proud of you, always be proud of his memory.
His brothers hang tight and always take care of Mom.
Daniel is sitting with Jesus and G.E Bell-Grandpa!!!!
Respectfully and God Bless you all- Shelly Ham
