His education was completed at a private school in Indiana. In 1965, Daniel married Juanita and the two grew their family to include two girls, Bonnie and Jackie, who reside in Canada. He then went on to serve as the Vice President of the U-Haul company in Detroit, did standup comedy and performed music for The Holiday Inn.
