Mr. Daniels was retired from Dominion Power in Chester, Virginia. He was a founding member of the Ice Box Hunt Club in Millboro, Virginia. David was a mountain man who always believed he was born in the wrong time period. He enjoyed the outdoors through hunting, fishing and metal detecting. He also continued his family tradition of moonshining. He studied the Bible each and every day and spread the word and love of God to everyone he knew. He also took great pride in the United States of America and saw our nation as one under God. David was a loving and supportive father and grandfather. His legacy will forever be remembered and celebrated by his family.
A private family celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
