He was raised with love and care by his mother; Fannie, along with his late grandparents, Oddie and Charlie Murry, Sr.. Walt was an all around loveable and humble person. To know him, was to love him. He would lend a helping hand any way he could. He was always a person full of jokes. But most of all, he was the realest person you would ever meet. He didn’t meet to many strangers. He was just who he was, Walt Jr. Daniels, and any other nickname his friends gave him. Walt was a Graduate of Headland High School. He enjoyed attending his church, Little Rocky Mount Baptist Church. He loved his job at Rushing Enterprises Inc., where he had worked over thirty years and was still working at the time of his passing.

The family would also like to acknowledge his work family “The Rushing Crew” and his church family at Little Rocky Mount Baptist Church, in Tumbleton, Alabama.
