Daniel was a very wise man who had a love for horses from an early age. He spent many hours riding and training horses which lead him to work for “Doc” Moore in Branson for many years on his farm. Daniel and his beloved horse Buck spent 27 great years together.
He worked for 40 years in the propane industry delivering propane to the Stone county area where he eventually owned White River Propane Company until the time of his death. He was an avid history buff. He loved to make his kids, grandkids & great grandkids smile with funny faces (which may or may not have included removing his teeth), sweet treats and lots of toys to play with. He started his hotrod appreciation with a 1962 Impala, loved drag racing and spent endless nights working on cars and trucks (never without gloves). He had an incredible sense of humor and had a kind and gentle demeanor. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
