Mr. Kenneth Earl Daniels, Jr. passed away early Sunday evening, February 23, 2014 while at Duke Hospital in Durham, NC.
A native of Cumberland County, NC, Kenny was one born to the late Kenneth E. Daniels, Sr. and Lillie Ruth Britt.
“Kenny Boy”, as he was known growing up, developed a love of nature and a respect for the land with all of its blessings. Kenny was passionate about hunting and farming. He always managed to have an abundant supply of crops. He compassionately shared with anyone who he might benefit from the bounties that he had received. No one went hungry with Kenny around.
Some of the best family memories were made on the USS North Carolina as he would take the family on tour for hours on end during vacations to Wilmington, NC. Kenny was self-employed with his own hauling business. In 2005, he and Nita Blalock were married. This gentle man with a huge and giving heart will be greatly missed.
Survivors include his wife, Nita, of the home; his daughters, Krystal Daniels Joshua Holt of Holly Springs, NC, and Kelly Daniels Tommy Pearce of Clayton, NC; his brother, Mark Daniels Diane of Zebulon, NC; his sisters, Kathy Lusk Paul of Knightdale, NC and Lynn Burroughs Jeff of Zebulon; his stepdaughters, Crystal Harris Jason of Pittsboro, NC and Lindsey White Walker of Monroe, NC; his grandchildren, Christian, Mariah, Timothy, Dallas, Jordon and Natalie; his step-grandchildren, Hailey and Leah; and his German Shepherd, Joe.
