Charles M. McDaniel Obituary
POQUOSON - On August 4, 2017, God wrapped his arms around Charles and took him home. Charles, known to many as "Red" or "Charlie" was born in Poquoson on May 10, 1934. After graduation from Poquoson High School Class of 1953, he started working for Virginia Power and married the love of his life, Georgia, as soon as they both turned 19 years old. Red developed and sold real estate, farmed, and collected antiques while working shift work for the Power Company for 32 years. He collected, restored, and rebuilt many antiques which allowed him to invest in real estate and farming. He collected many Poquoson antiques which he donated to the Poquoson Museum that he and his wife help establish. After retirement, it was not unusual to find Charlie in his shop. He loved showing off his latest carvings to the McDonald's Coffee Club and anyone else which caught his eye. Red and his wife, were famous for their beautiful carousels that he would carve and she paint. Charlie is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Georgia Ketchie McDaniel. He was often heard saying that she was the best thing to ever happen to him. He is also survived by his sons, Gregory McDaniel and wife Ellen, and Danny McDaniel and wife Martha; foster son, Randy Luten; daughter, Bonnie McDaniel Cobb; grandchildren, Aaron McDaniel and wife Anna, Cassie Prisco and husband Phil, Matthew McDaniel, Holly Jones and husband Lee, Zac Cobb and wife Erin, Ryan Cobb and wife Sarah, Megan Luten, and Christine Luten; and eleven great-grandchildren.
