Obituary of Albert Leval Daniels

Albert Leval Daniels, 75, of Lexington, South Carolina passed away November 25th, 2022, at Lexington Medical Center. He was born April 25th, 1947 in Sellers, South Carolina to Clifford and Mildred (Huggins) Daniels. Albert served in the United States Navy, where he worked as a radio operator during his fouryear service. He later enlisted in the United States Air Force Air National Guard, devoting 26 years of service as a Command Post Craftsman. He had the privilege of serving in Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom during his tour of duty. Alongside his service in the military, Albert also worked at AT&T as an electronic technician for close to 30 years, until finally retiring from both. Growing up living his entire life in the south, Albert was always devoted to his family. Whenever anyone needed advice or even someone to lend an ear to vent to, he was the person that everyone went to first.

He never thought twice to set aside what he was doing in order to help someone out. He loved spending every second he could with his grandchildren, whether it was riding around in the golf cart or teaching one of them how to hit a baseball. He volunteered a good portion of his time for Dixie Youth Baseball, where he was a baseball commissioner. There wouldn’t be a tournament or game that you wouldn’t see him at the ball field driving his golf cart around talking to all the parents and players making sure everyone was taken care of, and it was something he loved doing.

He was a one-of-a-kind person that will be loved and forever missed. Survivors include his wife, Linda Daniels of Lexington, SC; two children, Clifford Daniels (Brandi) of Eglin AFB, Florida, Phillip Daniels of Lexington, SC; four grandchildren, Zachary, Alyssa, Connor and Peyton Daniels; a sister, Joyce Taylor (Rev. Legrande) of Laurinburg, NC; a brother, Ray Daniels (Judy) of Latta, SC; three sister in-laws, Virginia Daniels of Latta, SC, Debbie Benton of Brunswick, GA, and Marilyn Powell of Waverly, GA; a mother inlaw, Christine Powell of Brunswick, GA; and many loved nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Jerry Daniels and Jimmy Daniels; a sister, Debra Hardwick; father in-law, George Powell; and a brother in-law, Richard Powell.
