Ben H. Daniel Jr. of Arlington, TX passed away on March 13th, 2017 at the age of 76.

Ben was born to parents Ben and Mary Daniel on January 27th, 1941 in Waverly, TN. The Daniel's subsequently moved to Chicago, Il where he grew up famously on the City's South Side while attending South Shore High School.

Ben married his High School Sweetheart Carol Daniel the first minute he could in 1961 where along with their four loving children met every challenge in life head on and lived happily side by side for over 55 years.

Ben's family moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid 1980's where he was able to enjoy his passion for family, fishing and outdoor cooking to the fullest and he excelled as an Intermodal Terminal Manager where he helped implement many industry changing innovations that are still in place today.

Ben's life exemplified that of a responsible, light hearted but hard working man that placed his Wife and Family above all else. His many achievements, exploits and adventures are legendary and the direct but compassionate manor in which he dealt with others was always with the intent to guide someone in doing the right thing and to be the best they could be.

Ben is survived by his Beautiful Wife Carole, Sons Chris and Kevin, Daughters Ann Marie and Marybeth, Daughter-In Law Michelle, Grandsons Robert, Josh, Jason and Kyle, Granddaughters Alicia and Katherine, and countless friends and admirers.

In lieu of Flowers the family would appreciate donations to be made in his memory to the American Heart Association.
