He was born to the late Edith (Robie) and Bert E. Daniels on April 27, 1939, in Keene. He was educated at Keene High School, class of 1958. After graduating, Robert ended up joining the United States Army where he was stationed at Fort Sill Oklahoma, and then in England. He was honorably discharged in 1962.
Robert worked for Markem Corporation for 36 years as a general machinist for metal engraving in the Printing Elements Department, until he retired back in 2001.
He enjoyed social gatherings with his family and friends; during his younger years, he enjoyed four-wheeling and attending softball games at Wheelock Park. When friends needed help with construction and other work projects he was usually the first one there to lend a hand. He also enjoyed doing yard work around his home and was quite meticulous about its upkeep.
Robert is survived by his niece Lynn (Hank) Brunjes of Swanzey NH, his brother in laws Andrew Perra of Swanzey NH and Paul Shrepta of Westmoreland NH, his sister in-laws Bunnie Daniels of Florida and Joan Daniels of Washington State, and his son Gordon Daniels and his family of Keene NH. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews Jae Ann Witzgal, Doreen Perra, Mark Perra, Scott Perra, Jeff Perra, Gina Paight, William Daniels, Danny Daniels, Rhett Daniels, along with many other extended family and friends. He leaves behind his close friends Steve and Cindy Buswell and their daughter Laura Burt; and Ed and Diane Drew and their children Hunter and Hannah. Robert is now rejoined with his parents and five siblings, George Daniels, Mabel Harris, Christine Perra, William Daniels, and Alice Shrepta, along with his nephew John Short.
Keeping with Robert’s wishes, there will be no calling hours. A graveside service will be held at a later time.
Arrangements are under the care of Cheshire Family Funeral Homes and Crematories, 46 South Winchester St. Swanzey, NH, 03446.
