James Dwight McDaniel

James Dwight McDaniel, Sr., officially known as “Buster”, went home to be with his Lord on August 16, 2020 at his home in Reidsville. A graveside service will be held at 11am on Thursday, August 20, 2020, at Hickory Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery in Pelham, NC with Pastor Joe Dillion officiating. James was born on October 4, 1950 in Rockingham County to the late Paul Sr., and Ruth McDaniel. He had a passion for gardening and grew a big garden every year so that he could give his produce to friends, family, and the community. He also enjoyed fishing, boat riding, and fixing lawn mowers for people in the community. The most important thing to James was his love for God, his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. James will be remembered for his faith in Christ and for sharing the word of God with everyone he spoke to. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by the love of his life for 42 years, Joyce McDaniel; son, James Dwight McDaniel, Jr.; granddaughters Ashley Anderson and husband JC of Eden, Chyna Jones of the home; grandsons, Isaiah McDaniel and Blake Jones of the home; great-grandchildren, Kaylynn and Kiah Anderson of Eden; brother, Bobby McDaniel and wife Reavell of Reidsville; sisters, Sylvia Mosser and husband Terry of Reidsville, Bettie Emerson and husband Wayne of Providence, NC; sister-in-laws, Darnell McDaniel of Reidsville, Jeanette McDaniel of Reidsville ; brother-in-laws, Kenny Neal of Reidsville, Ricky Neal and wife Tammy of Reidsville; in addition to a multitude of special nephews and nieces.

Sweet Buster, what a great man he was. No matter how long I went without visiting the church every time I did he would say hey theres my girl! I would say you know it, how you been and it was never a oh Im hanging in there but more like Im doing great, how about yourself? Last time I seen him he wasnt feeling well and was laying down, I went up to him and said Buster, Im still your girl right? With a very lite voice he said you know it! I let him know then I would always be here for him and his wife if they ever needed anything! What a sweet couple! Buster you will truly be missed. Ill see you soon!

I was so honored to have know "Buster" for a lot of years. He was always so good to me and made me feel like family. I am praying for the family earnestly throughout this time of grief.
