Daniel was born on November 24, 1959 in Maywood, CA but has spent his remaining years in Batesville, MS. He was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Batesville, MS. Daniel loved his sports, especially baseball. He was a huge Rams and Dodgers fan. He was one of the best when it came to bowling. Some of his favorite T.V. shows and movies were NCIS, Sound of Music, and Wizard of Oz. Daniel has always enjoyed being able to relax on a sunny day by the pool listening to his country music. When it came to Daniel’s favorite past times nothing could beat a good long nap for him. He was definitely an animal lover. Daniel had some dogs over the years that he loved dearly, Rocky, Homie and Coco. As his sister says, Daniel suffered from the middle child syndrome. He was always the rebel out of the siblings. Although Daniel enjoyed countless things in life nothing made him more proud than his children. His children were and forever will be his greatest achievements in life. He loved his family above anything else and will truly be missed by those closest to him.
Daniel Gonzales is survived by his wife, of twelve years, Eva Gonzales; son, Robert (Jessica) Gonzales; daughter, Amanda (Ernest) Gonzales; two grandchildren, Jeremiah Gonzales and Serena Gonzales; three godchildren, Karissa Flores, David A. Culp and John C. Culp; brother, Mike (Yolanda) Gonzales; sister, Vicky (Fred) Culp; and parents, Robert and Inez Gonzales.
