The Guest Book is expired.
Daniel was born in Colusa, California where he grew up and graduated from high school.
He joined the United States Army and enjoyed telling stories of his experiences as an army cook. He followed a friend to Alaska some 30 years ago and settled in Anchorage.
Daniel was a faithful Christian who was a member of the G-3 Church and Skyline Foursquare Church in Anchorage attending both on a weekly basis. He was a direct descended of Pablo Apis, leader of the Temecula Luiseno Indians in 1852, now known as the Pechanga Band.
He worked in various occupations that included commercial truck driver, mechanic, security guard and cook. He had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed the company of others.
Although he faced many challenges related to health issues he never complained about his circumstances even one time. Although reluctant to accept help, he was always willing to help others.
Daniel's surviving relatives are his brothers: Steven Razo (Crickett) of Colusa, Calif.; Edward Razo of Greenville, Ky.; sister Frances (Robert) Villalobos of Temecula, Calif.; along with numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Felix and Beatrice (Salinas) Razo.
Daniel was loved, respected and will be greatly missed by both his earthly and spiritual families.
