Obituary For Godfrey Daniels
Godfrey Daniels, 90, of Jacksonville, NC went to be with his heavenly father on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Godfrey was born and raised in Guyana by the late Norman Alexander and Kathleen Beulah Daniels.
He grew up with his sisters Norma, Vivienne, Waple (Baby) and brothers Neville and Vibert Daniels whom he was close to. He grew up as a Christian and was schooled into his career as a dispenser at Garraway and Tangs drugs store in Georgetown Guyana. He also worked for many years as a supervisor at Weiter and Ricther drinks factory in Georgetown Guyana. This would go on to shape his life as an adult and would inspire him to be a dedicated and loving father. The Family migrated to the USA in 1988 and he continued working and being a dedicated husband and father whilst his children sought after their own career paths and families.
Surviving Godfrey is his wife, Irna Grant Daniels, of over 63 years; sons, Bernard Daniels of Queens, NY, Stephen Daniels and wife, Jenny Minoo Daniels of the United Kingdom and David Daniels of Guyana; Daughters, Angela Tiam-A-Fook and husband, Walter of Bradenton, FL, Lucinda Daniels of Queens, NY, Hazel Banfield and husband, Hayden of Jacksonville, NC.

Great granddaughter Nawla Williams.
Godfrey was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. His life had an amazing impact on everyone who knew him. Our family was defined by love and generosity and in between the trials Without Harold Godfrey Daniels love and support in our family our lives would’ve been drastically different. He was a man of faith and as a servant of God he led his family to a place of Honouring God and trusting in his word.
We mourn the loss of our father and encourage all who knew him to remember the calmness and soft-spoken man he was.
He is at peace in heaven with his Lord and Saviour and although he will be sadly missed he will be forever in our hearts and minds.
The viewing and cremation will be held on Saturday 9th October 2021 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at Johnson Funeral home, 2685 Henderson Drive, Jacksonville NC. 28546 USA.

Dearest Dad Thank you for your love, and lessons by example of acceptance, forgiveness, steadfastness, discipline and so much more. Your peaceful calm presence still soothes and keeps me going and I'm forever grateful to call you dad. I miss your hugs, "Have a Blessed Day" and "I Love You" and know that you will continue to wish that all my days are bless. As I mourn your passing I will take comfort in your advise to take "One Day At A Time" and knowing that you will be my forever angel watching over me. Thank you for surrendering your life to Christ, for living a life that was pleasing to him and for showing me the way. I remember you telling me how glad you were that you had given your life to Christ. You even said if you had know you would have done it earlier because it made you a better man. Thank you for giving to the Lord and the wonderful example you were of living for HIM!!! Rest well with Jesus papa until we meet again. Say hello to all who have crossed over. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER DAD 🫂 🤗 👐 💋 😘 😗
Condolences to the bereaved family of uncle Danny. He was known to us as "The quiet man". He was always willing to help and gave his advise if you had a problem and needed help. He was a loving husband and father to his family and a very good friend to many. Goodbye uncle Harold (Danny). May the good lord rest your soul in heavenly peace. 🙏🏾🙏💝
Our deepest sympathies to Auntie I, all our cousins and their families, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are filled with nostalgic love, fond times with Uncle Danny. We pray uncle's soul be at rest in Almighty God's home. Rest in peace up in heaven Uncle Danny, Rest in Peace!🙏
Our condolences to Auntie Erna and the children on the departure of a husband and father. Thanks for the good memories Uncle Danny. I remembered a tall and slender Uncle who alway had the time to ask how we are doing. He was alway smiling. As a child, whenever he would visit our home, he alway had a quarter to give me to buy candies. This was because I was his Godchild. Thanks Uncle Danny for the fond memories. Rest in the eternal peace of Jesus Christ, your Lord and Savior.
RIP Uncle Danny, gone but not forgotten. I remember you visiting Mom and Dad, with Auntie and the kids in the wagon. As kids we would-get into the wagon and you would take us for a ride sometimes to the sea wall, or around the block, we enjoyed that. We would say open the back, open the back (of the wagon).My condolences to all.
Condolences to the Daniels family,thoughts and prayers are with you all. From: Sonita Minoo Nurse and Family.
Rest in Peace Bushy Head. You are no longer in pain and that is what truly matters. God knows best and even though will be missed you memories will live on with everyone that you have met in your life on earth.
Always the distinguished gentleman in all aspects of his life. His wisdom, love of God and family and his integrity were never questioned as he always displayed with pride. He will be missed. God speed Pops, you have earned eternal rest and peace, go with God and shine your light on us. You will be missed. Love, Walter. Condolences to all family members and friends of this great man. 🙏🙏
Hi Dad God saw you getting tired a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered come with me. The pain and hurt we now process at news you passed away, even though we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stop beating a blessed soul at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. I 💔 U DAD Psalms 51:16-17 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
My condolences to Aunt Urna and family. I always remember him when I was about 7 or 8 yes old , he would always say , boy how are you doing, and I would reply fine. He would says thats good. Here take this penny and buy yourself something. I always bought sugarcane. Thanks uncle Danny.
From Deryck, Molly and family in south Florida, we share in the celebration of Mr. Daniel's life and our prayers go out for Mrs. Daniels and all you guys, trust the Lord in ALL things and lean not on your own understanding and stay strong.
