Daniel was born on December 2, 1950, in Chesnee, SC, to Harold & Ruth (Mahaffey) McGee. He graduated from Benton Harbor High School in 1969. In 1970, Daniel proudly served our country by enlisting in the United States Navy, where he served aboard the USS Hanson during the Vietnam War. After he returned home, Daniel married the love of his life, Mary “Liz” Trogdon, on May 11, 1974. He worked for Chardon Rubber for 28 years in the maintenance and tool and die departments. Daniel and Liz would spend many afternoons attending car races and experiencing countless motorcycle trips to various locations throughout the United States. He also enjoyed playing golf, scuba diving, water skiing and watching NASCAR. A passion of his was superheroes; specifically, Superman. He was an avid collector of superhero comic books and loved to draw them. So much so, that he painted a scene of ‘Superman on the Moon’ on his motorcycle gas tank. Daniel also liked to cheer on the Detroit Lions & Red Wings, and watching movies on his computer. He was a loving and compassionate man, who always put a smile on everyone’s face. Daniel will truly be missed by all who knew him.

Daniel is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Liz, of Benton Harbor; mother, Ruth McGee of Benton Harbor; siblings, Steven (Roxanne Merlino) McGee of Benton Harbor and Susan Dean of St. Joseph; brothers-in-law, Eddie, Billy, Ricky, Daniel and Allen and their spouses; sisters-in-law, Irene, Eunice, Kay and Rose and their spouses; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins; and loving dogs, Sissy, Cujo, Bosco, Goldie and Betsy.

Daniel was preceded in death by his father, Harold and brother, Marshall McGee.
