Douglas George Daniell passed away April 16, 2022, in Fredericksburg, Texas, at the age of 81. He was married to Margaret Kitchens Daniell. He was born on October 29, 1940, in Brownwood, Texas, to George and Wanda Daniell.
Doug lived in Brownwood until 1985 when he and Margaret relocated to Port Aransas, Texas, where they owned property and had vacationed for years. He was a prolific entrepreneur owning many businesses in his lifetime. Doug never passed an empty lot that he did not know the perfect business for that location. Doug wore many hats; among those, car dealership owner and Hertz licensee for most of South Texas. Doug and his wife left Port Aransas one year ago, retiring to their home in Fredericksburg.
Doug had a quick wit and a wonderful sense of humor. He was known for his limitless generosity, fighting for what he believed in, treating everyone as an equal and forgiving unconditionally. He was a voracious reader who loved sharing quotes, articles and books with all. He loved fishing, shopping for old cars, new boats and spending time with family and friends. He offered advice often to those who knew him, especially his children, who sometimes even listened.
He is survived by his loving wife Margaret; brother Barry Daniell of Brownwood; and his children, Alan (Glenda) Daniell of San Antonio, Leanna (Danny) Reynolds of Southlake, Jerry (Lisa) Daniell of Fair Oaks Ranch, and Michelle Sowers (Rob Maxham) of Port Aransas. He also leaves behind grandchildren, Taber (Adam) Crawford of Argyle, Michael (Kristen) Daniell of Rockport, Tara (Tyler) Tate of Southlake, Mathew Daniell of Cibolo, Jordan Stringer of San Antonio, Cole (Shea) Daniell of Aledo, Jessica (Seth) Hankins of Salt Lake City, Nick and Ben Wengrovitz of Fair Oaks Ranch, Nick, Jace and Emily Maxham of Port Aransas, Jacob Daniell of Fort Worth and Cooper Sowers of Port Aransas, as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nephews and nieces.
Doug is preceded in death by his parents, George and Wanda; his son Dan Daniell; and grandson Chad Daniell. Also left to cherish his memory is daughter-in-law Stacy Daniell of Arlington, ex-wife and friend Ann Hall Schulze of Keller, and many devoted friends.
He will be greatly missed by those who loved him.
