I did not have the privilege of meeting Mr. McDaniel, but I have had the privilege of knowing his daughter, Bobbie. And if she is any indication of how wonderful he was, he was a wonderful man.
God bless and keep you all.

I remember Leon as a joyful person always. I saw him at Magnolia when I was there with Mrs Mary Claude Smith. Always happy. Leon loved everyone and everyone loved him. Loved the tribute movie you can tell from it just how much he loves Bobbie Jean and the boys. Always talked about the boys. God Bless you all and my prayers for you all. Love, Dean Brown Howington

To the family: I am praying for you during this time. It is sorrow to our hearts, but rejoicing in heaven. I know that Mr. McDaniel is in the presence of Almighty God, whom He loved. My life has been blessed by Mr. McDaniel's friendship when I visited the residents at Magnolia Estates. He loved to attend the Bible devotions and the services when we came from Old Suwanee Baptist Church. His stories of his service to our country were an inspiration. He truly loved America and prayed for her! He was such a friend to others and enjoyed saying things to make us laugh. I will greatly miss him. May the Lord bless you and comfort you.
