On February 29, 1976, Charles and Cynthia Daniel welcomed the birth of their first born son. They named him Charles Lamont Daniel. He was better know as “Mussey”, “Half-Pint” “Lamont” and “Burger”.
Lamont accepted Christ at a young age and united with the First Missionary Baptist Church family under the pastorate of Dr. Shadrach Porchia. He served as a Junior Deacon, choir member. He proudly served on the usher board under the leadership of Sis. Ella Mae Butler.
He was a 1996 graduate of Sparkman High School. Shortly after high school he attended Job Corps in New Mexico. Lamont was not a lazy young man; he exemplified Genesis 3:19” By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." He worked for over 10 years with Dean Crouse Company. He was an employee of Ray White Lumber Company.
“Mussey” was an outdoorsman. He spent countless hours hunting and fishing. He was a simple man who loved his children and his family. He favorite song was “Regulate” by Warren G & Nate Dog. He lived life to the fullest and there was never a dull moment when he was around. Family as well as friends will miss his jovial spirit and smile, but will never forget his sense of humor.
