Obituary for Robert O. Daniel

Thessalonians 5:2 “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

On November 4, 2018, God called home our beloved Husband, Daddy and Papa. Robert Odis Daniel, slipped peacefully at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. He was born July 12, 1947 to the late Robert L. and Irene Daniel. He was also preceded in death by his brother Floyd Daniel.

He accepted Christ at an early age at Union Baptist Church Beaverdam, VA. On March 28, 2013 he moved his membership to Second Mount Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Marvin Fields. He enjoyed worshipping and sat faithfully on the first pew in the balcony. On Sunday afternoon, you could find him enjoying family time and cutting up with his sons-in-law. They formed a strong bond and enjoyed joking with each other. You would often hear him say, “Think Watt! Think Dre’!” Then he would holler “It’s over!”

Robert was a 1966 graduate of Union High School, Milford, VA. Robert would often get in trouble for doing devilish things. For that reason, his wood shop teacher, Mr. Walter Lowe nicknamed him “Loose Screw”. He made many friends there and they remained friends to this day.

Robert retired from Reagan National Airport on December 14, 2017. He was a Skycap for almost 50 years. He was known as Danny to his co-workers and regular customers. He was a dedicated worker who took pride in servicing his customers. They would often call him personally to let him know that they would be traveling. His customers treated him well. There have been numerous phone calls since his death. His co-workers and customers have expressed their deepest sympathy.
His hobbies included “ATVing”, fishing, gardening, and hunting. You could often find him in Green Top. He was preparing to go hunting when he suddenly became ill. He was a member of the L&B Hunt Club, New Kent, VA. Robert was also considered the “Neighborhood Watch Patrol” in Boone Town. He loved his neighbors and they loved him.

Outspoken. Provider. Family Man. He leaves to cherish great memories to his devoted wife of 50 years, Shirley; devoted daughters, Tomika Stevens (Watt), Maranda Addison (Andre’); grandchildren, Myles Stevens, Alban (A.J.) & Raven Dudley, Andre’ (A.J.) & Briana Addison; two great-grandchildren, Mia & Zayne; brothers, Tommy, Carroll “Frank” (Bonnie) and sister Lydia Boulware; Aunt, Beatrice Lewis; sisters-in-law, Verna Williams, Velma Hatcher (Charles), Marion and Thomasina Baylor, several devoted nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Words can’t begin to express my heartfelt sympathy. My memories go back to when our families were neighbors and how often you would stop by and chat with my beloved father who is now resting in the arms of Jesus. You and Dad are now chatting in heaven, Hallelujah! May God’s peace and comfort surround you during this difficult time as only He can.
With love, Renee McPhatter Smith and Family

I did not see Otis very often but when I did we would all joke each other of the crazy things we did said that would get us both in trouble even on the church ground at Union baptist in Beaverdam. so rest in peace Otis. We all loved you but God loved you best. Hlelen D. Jones from Beaverdam.

We embrace you tenderly as you say farewell to someone so special to you. Robert was an exceptional person who lived to help his fellowman. He will be greatly missed on the Jericho Road for the service he rendered to those that he so graciously helped. Shirley and girls, know that God doesn\\'t make mistakes. He knows all about when we are to enter and exit, this was Loose Screw\\'s time. We know that you hurt because this is a natural function as we loose those we love. We will keep you lifted up in prayer, asking God to give you the strength for the days ahead. Remember, weeping endureth for a night, but joy will come in the morning. Lean on Jesus for He knows your every care.

Robert, this is your friend, Eddie Nelson. Thank you for your kindness and faithful help to Doris & I. Whatever we needed done around our home, we only had to call you and you were faithful to come to our aid. Shirley, thank you for letting Robert be a Servant of God to the whole community. Whenever the snow came you two would always make sure that Brother Nelson was able to get out and go by cleaning his driveway. When asked, Robert what do I owe you, his answer was always, anything you give me. \\" GOOD BY ROBERT: Rest in the Lord, see you in Heaven. Shirley put your trust in God and He will be with you to comfort and strengthen you. WE LOVE YOU. Eddie & Doris Nelson.

We will miss you \\"O\\". We don\\'t know our appointed time , we just know we can\\'t stay here. God called a good one home. You have been one of the most kindest , loving person I have met. Thank you for celebrating Momma\\'s special day on the 27th. You were full of love, smiles and fun.

You rest on until we all see each other again. We love you...but God Loved You Best. Cousin Lorna!

Dear Shirley,
I was saddened to learn of the untimely death of your husband Robert. He had a heart of gold and I know you loved your man. I know that this loss you and your children are suffering is very personal, but I want you to know that I am thinking of you at this time. Death separates us from our loved ones but it cannot destroy memories. So thank God for the precious memories in the days ahead. May God keep you and yours in His permissive Will.

To my classmate and friend, Shirley:

I can\\'t express, enough, just how saddened I was to have heard of \\"Loose Screw\\'s\\" passing!! So jovial, so kind and quite \\"entertaining\\"....a wonderful personality is what we will remember about Robert Daniel. I am so glad we all had the opportunity to be in each other\\'s company at Chante\\'s Birthday celebration...truly a great time...and I have reminded my grandkids that he was the nice gentleman who you and I had to go outside and \\"rescue them from that pond area\\". He was determined he would bring them back inside...and he did!!! My brothers (Jesse Deyo and Michael Pierce) were not only classmates of his, but they maintained a friendship after school. Michael sends his condolences to you and the family. I pray for you, the children and all of the family to keep those special memories at heart...blessings to all!!

To the family: Please know our hearts are heavy because of the loss of our dear friend & neighbor. We will always treasure the memories and acts of kindness he displayed in \\"Boone town\\". Robert could always be counted on to lend a helping hand to us when needed. He was also our neighborhood watch patrol and we knew he would come if you called him or he saw the urgency! His presence will be deeply missed but we understand that God had a better plan and place for him.
We pray God will grant you peace and comfort in the days ahead. Love Earl & Gail Bolden

Death is never expected even when it is. It is never easy no matter what the circumstances are. Loose Screw was always happy go lucky and just awesome overall. I will never forget when he picked me up from home around 3 a.m. to take me to meet Uncle Leon at the airport. I enjoyed that ride! We talked about a little bit of everything! He was just a good man! I have never seen him upset! The news of his passing really touched my heart, it actually drew tears. Life is so short no matter how many years you have on this earth. Let\\'s love one another and draw closer to God and each other. Loose Screw, your living was not in vain. You were and will always be an awesome man that I have always known as Loose Screw!!!! Rest in Peace, you deserve it. My prayers are with you family! T.K. & family
