Daniel Nunley was always willing to go the extra mile to help people, and always thought there was someone who had less than what he had, said his sister, Jeanette Burrus.
“If he knew you needed something, he wouldn’t rest until he got it to you,” she said.
Daniel Nunley, 60, of Hobart, died July 12. He was owner of Professional Paving.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Julian and Wanda Nunley.
“He loved his Momma, and was a real Momma’s boy,” his sister said.
Nunley was full of life, and was known as “Uncle Dan” to everyone who knew him.
“He would aggravate me and make me mad, but then he would make me laugh,” she said. “He helped me raise my kids. We were always together, side by side.”
Burrus said her brother loved spending time with her kids and their friends.
“He loved kids, and would always win them over,” she said. “He’d give them Popsicles, presents or whatever it took to make them happy.”
He loved music, played guitar, and wrote songs. Before he passed away, he bought a variety of musical instruments to give to the kids who might be interested in learning how to play them.
Although he suffered intensely after he was diagnosed with cancer, he fought against the disease.
“He never gave up. I have never seen anyone with the courage he had,” she said. “I will always admire that.”
