Velda “Val” Daniels Jr 1926 - 2016 Velda (Val) Daniels Jr. left us on May 19, 2016 to catch up with his wife Verdean who started her journey in the next life in 2008. His earthly journey started in Westerville, Nebraska on June 22, 1926 as the son of Velda (Joe) & Mildred Daniels. He enjoyed his early years in this quaint little town with extended family around. At age 10, he with a large group of family, moved to Albany, Oregon for work. Those were tough years financially and instilled in him a desire to succeed in life. Around 16 he left home to work in the ship building yards in Portland, Oregon. He soon became the supervisor over men much older than himself. This pattern of achievement became his driving force. While in the military, stationed at Kearns, Utah, he met and ultimately married Verdean Morley. They had two children Gary Dean (Tina) & Terry Kay (Jim) Booth who provided eight grandchildren and many great grandchildren. He is survived by his brother Jack (Shelly) Daniels and sister Anne Morss. Val loved to work. After working various jobs, one of which was a Salt Lake City fireman (3 years) he decided to focus on remodeling homes. Soon he started Olympia Kitchens, which grew to be the largest company of its kind in the intermountain area. This business provided employment for many. Val delighted working with all these good people. In his later years, he developed a love for golf. This was a great source of enjoyment and relaxation. He treasured the time he spent with his golfing buddies. Val spent the last years of his life living at Wentworth at Millcreek. Here he peacefully past away under wonderful care. We want to thank the staff and management there for the loving concern for him especially in the last days of his life. We also want to thank Comfort Worx hospice for their thoughtful and extra care he received. We would specifically like to thank their RN Christian for going above and beyond in his care. His family along with others will miss him greatly.
