Obituary for Daniel Calhoun

Daniel  Calhoun
On Monday, June 11th 2018, Daniel Calhoun passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home, in Jamaica, New York at the age of 86. Daniel Calhoun was born on June 2nd, 1932 to his loving parents Louis and Rosella Calhoun in Aiken, South Carolina. He was the youngest of three boys. Daniel attended grade school in Aiken, South Carolina up until the age of 17, when he enlisted in to the army. He served in the US Army from 1949-1952. Once he left the army, he moved to Jamaica Queens, NY. He met and married Helen Luchie in 1953, and they had three children together, Daniel Calhoun Jr., Dina Calhoun, and Anthony Calhoun.
Daniel Calhoun worked for many years as a tractor trailer truck driver for various companies, hauling steel windows all throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. He worked until his wife Helen’s untimely death due to breast cancer in 1995. Once he retired, he began focusing more of his time on his family and hobbies. He wrapped his free time around catering to his family, fishing, bowling, taking family vacations and so much more.
Daniel showered his family and friends with love, laughter and morality. He was a free- spirit who always saw the good in every situation. He will be remembered as a great husband, father, brother, grandfather, friend, and an outstanding role model. He was someone you could laugh and joke with to help lighten any mood, always lending a helping hand, and overall just an amazing man that we will all truly miss. Daniel leaves behind his stepdaughter Diane Burwell and grandchildren Andre, Dalilah, and Tiontay, his son Daniel Calhoun Jr. and grandchildren Leslie, Danielle, Antonette, and Daniel III, his daughter Dina Calhoun and grandchildren David, Dionna and Vertell, as well a host of great grandchildren, one great great grandchild and plenty of friends who will hold his memory dear to their hearts.
