Daniel was born on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. After graduating from high school, Daniel answered the call of duty in 1945 by joining the US Army. He spent a portion of his term in Europe and was honored with numerous service medals. Following his honorable discharge in 1948 he met his beloved wife Juliette and they married in 1953. Their journey led them to Oakland, California where Daniel studied at the University of California, Berkeley, earning his bachelor's degree in Business Administration. His professional career as an accountant with the federal government, spanned over 25 years, culminating in his retirement as Chief Accountant, from Mare Island Naval Shipyard in 1985. Daniel's life was a harmony of passions. He loved travel, theater, dining out, music and ballroom dancing, passions he shared with his late wife and continued to enjoy with his family and many wonderful friends after her passing. His most treasured activity was gathering for meals with his son and daughter, grandchildren, extended family and his companion Maybelle and their group of friends known as the “Lunch Bunch.” Daniel Lee's life was a testament to love, family, kindness, and resilience. He wove a tapestry of affection that touched the hearts of many. His charming, gentle spirit and magnetic smile was a precious and memorable quality. His journey was defined by the bonds he nurtured and the beautiful memories he created. Daniel will be deeply missed. He is survived by his son Dale, daughter Cindy, daughter in law, Georgia, grandchildren: Tomiko (Anthony), Jade (Julio), Amber (Chris), Justin (Mary), great grandchildren, Jordyn, Mya, Asha and Taye.
