February 18, 92,

Allen Daniels, 92, was called home on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 to the loving arms of Jesus Christ his Lord while surrounded by his family at Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

Allen was born in Wayne County on March 6, 1927 to the late Ed Daniels and Ruth Smith Daniels Dees. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Ruby Daniels. Allen was a valued employee of Wayne Wholesale for over 50 years.

For many years, Allen attended church with his wife at Mewborn Primitive Baptist Church. Allen was loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed. He always enjoyed sharing many wonderful stories about times gone by with his family and friends. Allen will be remembered by many as a man that was loyal to his family. The best of Allen will live on in each of us.

The family will receive friends Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel with Rev. Bill Rose officiating. A private interment for the family will be held at Wayne Memorial Park.

Allen is survived by his daughters, Sheila Shivar and husband Vernon of Goldsboro and Glenda Speight and husband Doug of Princeton; and his granddaughter, Amy Shivar. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews that he loved very much.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Willard Daniels, Lee Daniels, Clee Daniels, and Gene Daniels, and his sisters, Sallie Daniels, Esther D. Taylor, and Blanche D. Gurganus.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Martha Herndon and Genny Crumpler, who were not only caregivers but friends to Allen during his declining health. May God bless each of you in a very special way.

Flowers are welcome or the family suggests memorials be given to Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Court, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
