Daniel Lee Guile passed away suddenly at home on April 30th, 2020.\n\nDaniel was born in Pensacola, Florida; grew up in Battlecreek and Detroit, Michigan; joined the United States Marine Corp before serving a 2½ year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Northern Argentina. When he returned to the United States he went to Brigham Young University, soon meeting Katherine Adams, who would become his best friend and eternal companion. They were sealed in the Salt Lake City temple on June 9th, 1967. They had eight children. \n\nDaniel began serving in the United States Army, rising to the rank of Major, and was a proud soldier. He was also dedicated to the church and held many positions over the years. He loved expressing his faith and devotion through music and in the pursuit of languages. He was also a dedicated father, protective and serving as an example of honor, respect, and kindness.\n\nDaniel was the epitome of strength, a protector, and fierce ally. By his actions and bearing, he garnered trust from those around him, and also stood in opposition to cruelty. Daniel believed in mercy and justice, in hard work and diligence, and in constant improvement.\n\nHe had become Daniel the Deathless, the Unkillable, the Undying, until our Heavenly Father called him home. His watch was over and he bore his pain; Daniel Lee Guile earned his place with those who went before him, in peace and God’s love. He was mighty; his loss will be felt throughout time and space, until we meet again.\n\nDaniel Lee Guile’s graveside service will be held on Monday, May 11th at 11am-12pm at Utah Veterans Cemetery & Memorial Park, at 17111 1700 W, Bluffdale, UT 84065; follow the signs once there.\n\nIn lieu of flowers, Daniel’s family requests donations be made to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Missionary Fund \n\nhttps://donate.churchofjesuschrist.org/donations/church/missionary-fund?cde2=807-home\n\nThank you.
