From Daniel’s obituary:
Daniel was a man of deep faith and took pride in raising his family to know the love of Christ.
He was quick witted, confident, and never at a loss for words. He enjoyed music, was an expert in all things technological, a devoted sports fan, a self-proclaimed “DIY Home Renovation Extraordinaire” and was “hugely” interested in politics.
Aside from home, the gym was Daniel’s favorite place to be. He was a driven CrossFit competitor and training coach, and would enthusiastically mention this in as many conversations as possible. The members of CrossFit Yelm were among his closest friends.
Daniel’s greatest joy was getting to be Tytus, Tate, and Traxton’s Daddy. From daily wrestling matches to tactical Nerf Wars, building Legos, or playing video games, Daniel spent every moment making life meaningful and fun for his family. He will be forever missed by his wife, Cierra and his three sons, Tytus, Tate, Traxton as well as countless friends and extended family.
