Keith Alan Daniels, 58, of Carlinville, died on Sunday, May 31, 2020, at his home in Carlinville.
Private graveside services were held at Prairie Lawn Cemetery in Carlinville. Heinz Funeral Home of Carlinville assisted the family with arrangements.
Mr. Daniels was born on July 25, 1961, in Decatur, to Travis and Verna (Gooch) Daniels. He attended Carlinville schools. Mr. Daniels was employed by the Magnuson Grand Hotel, outside of Raymond, where he worked for 28 years. He enjoyed his work and work family.
He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. In his spare time, Mr. Daniels liked to tinker with electronics. He took pride in his home when he moved to town from the family farm.
Mr. Daniels was particularly close to his cousin, David Booth. He spent many hours helping him with his train layout and later, when David fell ill, with doctor’s appointments and treatment. He was truly David’s best friend and will be sorely missed.
Mr. Daniels is survived by his half-sister, Jacqueline Crowden; and several cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
