Reverend Linwood Daniel of Chesterfield, VA passed away on August 8, 2022. He was born in Emporia, VA in 1929. He was preceded in death by his parents, Turner & Lucy Daniel; brothers, Bobby & James Arthur Daniel; and grandson, Joshua Daniel. Linwood is survived by his wife of almost 62 years, Barbara Daniel; sons Michael, David, and Jeff (Tammy); grandchildren, Sam Daniel, Jessica Daniel (Bryan), and Lauren Daniel (Ryan); as well as four adoring great-granddaughters and two step great-granddaughters.
Linwood served three years as Corporal in the National Guard and has a BA degree and a Masters of Divinity Degree from Wesley Seminary in Washington D.C. He began serving churches as a student pastor in the mid-1950's. In 2000 he became a retired Methodist pastor and continued to serve churches until 2020. He and Barbara served churches over most of the state of VA and deeply enjoyed every single congregation. Linwood loved the people that he served and felt honored to be their pastor. He truly had an undeniably special gift for pastoral care and said so many times "we have SO many friends!" These friendships were one of his largest sources of happiness throughout his entire lifespan.
A celebration of Linwood's life will take place on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, with visitation at 12 noon, and memorial service to follow at 1pm at Highland United Methodist Church in Colonial Heights, Virginia.
