Donald Joe Daniel

Donald Joe Daniel, 85, of Mount Carmel, IL went to be with Jesus on Saturday, February 18, 2017. Don passed from this life into the next at Oakview Heights Continuous Care & Rehab where he was loved by staff and residents alike. He was attended in his final hours by every member of his loving family.

Don was born on May 27, 1931 in Sikeston, MO the son of Clyde and Edna (Seufert) Daniel. Originally from Sikeston, MO, Don married Charlene Hazel on May 30, 1954 and they moved to Mount Carmel in 1963 when Don was transferred to manage the P.N. Hirsch department store. After managing that store for twenty six years, Don eventually became the dairy manager at Mount Carmel Red & White where he worked for eighteen years before retiring. During Don’s working career he made many friendships.

Don was a Veteran of the Korean War where he proudly served our country from 1952 to 1953 in the United States Army. He was a member of the First General Baptist Church in Mount Carmel where he served many years as a trustee and the church custodian. Don was very patriotic and always encouraged everyone to proudly fly the American flag.

Don was a proud supporter of Golden Aces Football. He never missed a game until his health prevented him from attending. He was also an avid fisherman. His last fishing trip was a year ago when he fished on the lake owned by his granddaughter. He did not catch any fish that day but he sure enjoyed getting out in the sunshine and spending quality time with his family. Don will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.

Don will be remembered by his loving wife of nearly sixty three years, Charlene Daniel of Mount Carmel; daughter, Debra McClellan and husband, Tom of Owensville, IN; sons, Don Daniel and wife, Gail of Petersburg, IN, Mark Daniel and Chuck Daniel both of Mount Carmel; grandchildren, Brian McClellan, Valerie McClellan, Caleb Daniel and wife Daniele, Ben Daniel and wife, Amanda; two great grandchildren, Presley and Aidan Daniel.

Don was preceded in death by his parents.
