Aaron Augustine McDaniel (or "Uncle Mac" as he liked to be called) was the youngest of three sons born to Lewis "Daws" and Della (Paris) McDaniel in Scotland County, Missouri. In 1929, he married Mildred Mae Gordy and by 1930, the couple was living in Boulder, Colorado, where he worked as a meat cutter for Safeway Stores. In 1932, their daughter Donna Joan McDaniel was born in Des Moines, Iowa, and the family lived for a period of time in or near Keokuk, Iowa. By 1940, the family had relocated to Los Angeles, California, where Aaron continued working as a meat cutter in a meat market. They remained in California the rest of their lives, eventually buying property in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California. Aaron was a realtor in that area for many years and later in life was employed by the retailer K-Mart. On June 24, 1975, he enjoyed a lively family dinner with the families of his nephew Roscoe McDaniel and grand niece Jane (McDaniel) Boston who were visiting from Illinois and Northern California, respectively. There was much laughter and many happily shared stories. After the meal, he and his nephew took a walk during which he suffered a heart attack and died. Ironically, this was exactly how he had often said he'd like to die--after a good meal and a laugh. He is warmly remembered by his surviving nieces and nephews.
