Roscoe Daniel Jr.

February 08, 2024

Roscoe Daniel Jr., affectionately known as "Junie," passed away peacefully on January 27, 2024, at the age of 71, in Lexington. Born on February 28, 1952, in Clay County, Junie was a man whose kindness and gentle spirit touched the lives of all who knew him

Junie was preceded in death by his loving parents, Roscoe and Josephine Robertson Daniel, as well as his siblings Sonny Daniel, Joe Daniel, Rachell Daniel, and Phyllis Powell. He leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion, embodied by his beloved wife of 30 years, Susan Daniel, and his son, Mathew Daniel. His memory will also be treasured by his living siblings, Marvin Daniel and his wife Tammy, Irvin Daniel and his wife Gwen, Charlene Graham, and Linda Taylor, along with her husband Greg. Junie's warm spirit will continue to live on through the many nieces and nephews who survive him.

A lifelong farmer, Junie's passion for the land and the animals was evident to anyone who set foot on his property. His days were spent tending to his cattle, a job he did with love and dedication. Junie's connection to the earth was also seen in his love for gardening, a hobby that not only brought him joy but also provided bountiful harvests that he generously shared with family and friends.

Fishing was another of Junie's great pleasures. He found tranquility at the water's edge, a pastime that allowed him to reflect on the simple beauties of life. Those who had the privilege of accompanying him on these fishing trips will forever cherish the moments of silence, interrupted only by the sounds of nature and the occasional splash of a fish.

Junie's kind heart and warm smile will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He was a man of few words, but his actions spoke volumes about the depth of his character. His gentle demeanor and unwavering integrity made him a respected figure in his community and a pillar of strength within his family.

As we bid farewell to Junie, we take comfort in knowing that his spirit will continue to live on through the lives he touched and the beautiful land he so tenderly cared for. His was a life well-lived, full of love, hard work, and the simple joys that make a life worth remembering.
