Elgin is a true servant and he exemplified it through his relationships with others...through family relationships, his police career, coaching little league baseball, etc. by going out of his way to help and be a blessing to people he came in contact with.

I had the privilege of coaching baseball with Elgin for 9 years at Gresham Park and learned so much from him about character building, teamwork and instilling positive experiences in the lives of our players.

God's word states that "whoever wants to be great must become a servant.". He measures greatness in terms of how many people you serve. Therefore, last Monday he needed another great servant to enter into his kingdom and you were chosen...Congratulations on your promotion...

Teresa & Family we love you and thank you for allowing me to express remarks at the Home going Celebration...Remember nothing is lost when you know where it is...
November 17, 2012
To the Daniel family our prayers are with you at this time. Meeting Elgin was my honor and getting to see the son, Gabriel, he has reared into a man reflects his principles. He will be missed, but his legacy lives through his children. God bless you all.
November 16, 2012
My most sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Elgin. I was one of his sergeants at DeKalb P.D., and noticed his dedication and service to the job he decided to do, those many years ago. I regret not being able to attend his homegoing, but bear in mind; I just know he will remain in your loving hearts and memories.

Remember when things appear to be unbearable, trust in God, and think of Elgin.
November 16, 2012
With the love of God and each other, your loss will become easier to bear. Cherish all the wonderful memories you hold in your heart.

Your church family will be there when and if you ever need us.

Very sad too hear about my classmate, When we attended Slater, I remember Elgin and his friends excited about our up coming 6th grade prom, who they would ask out. We were all excited.
Then we graduated, to attend Price High. Elgin played football and was a good student. We were the graduating class of 1977.

I'm grateful to have known him, and proud too see the man he became.

He was such a quiet presence with a good heart.

Proverbs 4:7
May God add a blessing to the reading of his word.
November 15, 2012
Elgin was a High School Classmate. From what I hear, he remained the Gentleman that he was during our years at Luther Judson Price High School. God I pray that You lift and comfort the Daniels Family through this trial. We are comfortable by Your Word that says to be absent from the body is to be present with YOU. Our Brother Elgin is resting now with YOU!

Peace and Blessings,
Elder Timothy Godfrey, Roseville CA.

Another fallen star that shined so bright in the lives of so many. Elgin has always been a person with a humble and charismatic personality in elementary and high school.
