  3. Over the years, many of Dave’s former students have shared how much of an impact he had on their lives while they attended Lincoln College. Likewise, Dave shared with me how much he treasured his time as a professor here at Lincoln College and keeping in touch with so many of his former students. During an alumni reception in Chicago November 2012, several of Dave’s students called him and passed the cell phone around so everyone could say hello. Needless to say, he was ecstatic to talk to all of them! On behalf of all of us at Lincoln College, our deepest sympathies. “The Bopper”–as he was affectionately known, will be deeply missed.

  5. I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Daniel. As one of the people who helped in providing medical care for him I always enjoyed seeing his smiling face walk into the office. He always had the best sense of humor and Mrs.Daniel always by his side. My prayers are with you Mrs. Daniel and I know you’ll get through this because I know how strong you are. He will always continue to watch over you and protect you.

  6. What a blessing to have had the privilege to know David. He always took the time to ask how my family was and always had a smile on his face. You both have made an indelible smile in my heart.

    Mr. Daniel was an amazing gentleman and an exceptional father to many including my children. retired. There was never a visit without checking on my children, their progress and conduct both at home and in school.
    There was never a dull moment being around him, even when he’s not feeling well he still finds time to make you smile or laugh. Mr. Daniel will certainly be missed by many.
    Mrs. Daniel, you were his rock and shield, keep up the good work. We love You and will always keep you in our prayers.

  8. Dave was a wonderful family friend as well as a teacher to me and my brothers and sisters when he was in the Dallas City, Illinois school district. He took all of us under his arm and taught us well and stayed connected with us after he moved. He will be greatly missed by his students and his many wonderful friends. My parents feel the loss also as he became one of their children also. Us kids at the time thought of him as our big brother. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
