He married Betty Jo Rhoads on June 4, 1955 in Lawrenceville PA. Daniel retired from Corning, Inc. where he was employed as a Master Electrician and was a veteran of the US Air Force during WWII. He was a member of the Big Flats American Legion and the Horseheads Elks Club. Daniel was always a worker at home or helping friends and often helped total strangers. His largest hobby was spent with his wife and his family, whom he loved dearly. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Betty Jo; son and daughter-in-law, Gordon and Mary Herr of Athens, PA; daughter, Brenda McIntosh of Big Flats; grandchildren, Adam and Kathryn Herr and Kyle and Ryan McIntosh; great-granddaughter, Madasyn Herr; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Sandra and Robert Baldwin of Big Flats and their son, Keith; special nephew, Jay (Stephanie) Herr; and several additional nieces and nephews.
