Born June 10, 1911 in Los Angeles, CA to Jean Bautiste Fillet and Inez Elizalde. He was raised on the waterfront in San Diego, along with his 11 brothers and sisters. After high school, Daniel returned to Los Angeles where he worked as a longshoreman and, ultimately, in the meat packing industry for 50 years. In 1956, he founded Kitty Queen Pet Foods and became a pet food pioneer by introducing the first 6-ounce cat food can to the market.
