In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by one brother just a few months old and a sister, Ruby Klaiber.

Roy is survived by his wife, Judy Elvena Lintz Daniel whom he married June 27, 1961; four children: Sherri Daniel of Wheelersburg, Shelli Townsend of Ironton, Michael and JoAnn Daniel of Oklahoma, Sean Daniel and Amy Miller of Ironton; four grandchildren: Spencer, Jessica, Molly and Ethan Daniel; two sisters: Patty and Don Voiers of Ironton, Shirley and Dale Neal of Wheelersburg; brother-in-law Jim Lintz and his wife Katie; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was a man of many talents, not least, the ability to be a friend, neighbor and most of all – a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. When he was most sick his sense of humor still shined through and when you’d ask him how he felt he always answered, “fine.” He will be greatly missed. We love you Roy Clifford Daniel.
