August 10, 2022, 75, Goldsboro –
Linnie Gerald Daniels, 75, of Goldsboro went to be with his heavenly Father Wednesday morning, August 10, 2022 at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville surrounded by his wife and children.
Mr. Daniels was born in Wayne County on July 27, 1947 to the late Linnie James and Bettie Mae Grady Daniels. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force and was a faithful member of Faith Free Will Baptist Church.
His wife’s and children’s most lasting memory is that he was the strongest Christian anyone could ever meet. His true passion in life was to be obedient to his Lord Jesus Christ by allowing God’s light to shine through him as he touched the lives of many. Through pain and suffering he would say: “Trust in God because Jesus is at your journey’s end.”
He and his wife were “best buddies” and one could find them in their yard complementing each other through his love of a well-manicured lawn and her love for flowers.
He dearly loved his children and grandchildren and was a prayer warrior for them. They will cherish each moment shared with him.
He is survived by the “love of his life” of 50 years, Deborah “Debbie” Keen Daniels; his sons, Jason B. Daniels and wife, Teresa of Middlesex and Leslie G. Daniels and wife, Mandy of Goldsboro; one sister, Annie Lou Lee of Benson; five grandchildren, Dylan Daniels, Cooper Daniels, Noah Daniels, Zachary Daniels and Jase Daniels.
In addition to his parents, Mr. Daniels was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, James Lee.
The family will receive friends Friday, August 12, 2022 from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Howell Funeral Home & Crematory in Goldsboro and other times at the home. Homegoing services will be held Saturday, August 13, 2022 at 1 p.m. at Faith Free Will Baptist Church in Goldsboro with burial following at Wayne Memorial Park in Dudley with military honors.
The family is in the care of Howell Funeral Home & Crematory in Goldsboro.
