He is survived by his parents, his brother, Rev. John Hamilton (Pam), his sisters, Kelly and Holly Hamilton, all of Columbia, and numerous nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and grand-nephews, whom he adored.

Daniel was greeted in Heaven by his beloved older brother, Jimmie Jr., his Nana, his birth mother, Geraldine Hatch Hamilton, and many other loved ones.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Columbia Rotary Alzheimers Research Fund (CART); East Columbia Gideons; Shriners Children’s Hospital (Greenville); US Church Planting; Greenlawn Baptist Church or the charity of one’s choice.
