Robert was born June 10, 1937, in Daviess, to Bill and Sylvia Brownfield McDaniel.

Survivors include four sisters, Martha Baughn, Rosa Pursinger, Susan Wheel and Ellen McDaniel.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and one sister.

Robert was a very spiritual man who loved his community and the people in it.

In his earlier days, people may remember him walking around town with his headphones on or seeing him making rounds with the doctors at St. Elizabeth and Levering Hospitals.

He volunteered delivering "Meals on Wheels" for the Hannibal Nutrition Center for at least 25 years with the support of Learning Opportunities Quality Works. He was so happy and loved living in the Riney-Walden home, where he was loved by his house mates and staff alike. Those who knew him best will always remember him for his spunky personality, love of serving others and contagious laugh.

Memorial contributions may be made to the donor's choice.
