Alphonso E. Daniel

April 6, 2020


Master Sergeant Alphonso E. Daniel, United States Air Force (Ret.), of Chipley, Florida, answered the call of the Savior on April 6, 2020.  He was a native of Roanoke, Virginia. 
Alphonso was born to the late Richard & Flossie (Barksdale) Daniel in Roanoke, Virgina.  Alphonso was raised in a Christian home, therefore he accepted Christ as his personal Savior.  He was a member of Grant Tabernacle A.M.E. Church, Chipley, Florida.  He served as a Steward, an Usher, Bus Driver, Sons of Allen and on the Finance Committee. 
Alphonso served honorably in the United States Air Force in the position of Tactical Aircraft Maintenance Technician/Quality Assurance.  He retired after 26 years.  Alphonso transitioned to civilian life with ease and continued his love for aircraft.  His expertise ensured immediate and gainful employment with Raytheon, a major U.S. Defense contractor, and DynCorp, a government service provider, for another 20 plus years.  
Those left to cherish his memories include his wife: Helen Roche Daniel of Chipley, Florida; devoted father to two daughters: Carolyn (Willie, Jr.) Hightower of Tallahassee, Florida and Shirley (Arthur) Goff of Chipley, Florida; two sons: Otis Lee of Vernon, Florida and Theodis Lee of Chipley, Florida; cherished grandfather to 12 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren;  dear brother to two sisters: Linda Daniel and Frances Claytor, both of Roanoke, Virgina; along with a host of other relatives and friends.
