Glen McDaniel Obituary

Glen Arden McDaniel, age 91 of Fremont, passed away Thursday, February 8, 2024 at Green Acres Assisted Living Center in Fremont.  Glen was born on November 24, 1932 in Manton, Michigan to Arthur Glenn and Nellie Blanche (Creed) McDaniel.  He grew up on the Creed family farm with his mother, Nellie and grandparents, Rosco and Goldie Creed.  Glen met his future wife, Elaine M. Swanson during high school in Manton.  After high school, Glen was drafted into the US Army.  Before being deployed, Glen and Elaine met in Anderson, Indiana to be married on June 2, 1953.  Glen proudly served in the US Army on the European front primarily in Salsburg, Austria.  Upon his return they made their home in Sparta, Michigan.  Glen and Elaine moved to the Fremont area in 1963.  He worked at the Gerber Products Company for 29 years until his retirement as maintenance supervisor.  Glen spent many years volunteering with the Fremont United Methodist Men’s Fellowship and the Habitat for Humanity.  Glen was a true outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing.  His other hobbies included growing roses and being an avid reader of novels.  Glen’s pride and joy was building a log cabin in his early retirement years.  He lumbered his own logs from the property and built the cabin with the help of family and friends.  Glen and Elaine spent countless days enjoying their cabin and property.  Sadly, Elaine preceded him in death on May 6, 2013. 

Glen is survived by his children, Arden “Gregg” (Denise) McDaniel; Brian (Lynn) McDaniel; Randy (Terri) McDaniel; daughter-in-law, Eleanor McDaniel; 7 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; half sister, Glenda (Edmund) Chambeau; half brother, Gary (Margarette) McDaniel; and sister-in-law Shirley Richardson.  Glen was preceded in death by his wife, Elaine; his son, Patrick O.
