ANDOVER – PFC Juctin (pronounced Justin) Richard
Patrick McDaniel, 19 years young, died on Monday, December 17, 2007 in

Hampshire, he was the son of Timothy R. and Janine M. McDaniel.  Juctin was a
graduate of Andover Elementary Middle School and Merrimack Valley High
School.

PFC Juctin Richard Patrick McDaniel was in the Army stationed at
Schofield Army Base, 524th Combat Service Support Battalion, 45th Sustainment
Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command that was his command in
Hawaii.  He joined the Army Reserve when he was seventeen and decided to
join the regular Army in February of 2007 because he was proud to serve
our country.  He was deployed and died in Taji, Iraq (just over one
month) near Baghdad of a non-combat related injury, which is still under
investigation.

He was the beloved son of Timothy Richard and Janine Marie McDaniel,
Brother of Maygan Bethany McDaniel of Concord, MacKenzie Marie McDaniel
and Timothy Michael McDaniel of Andover, New Hampshire, Brother & Nephew
of Kerith Teklia Muzzey as she lived with us many years and came to
know him more as a brother than a nephew, Uncle of Ceianna Marie
McDaniel, Grandson of Mary and Richard McDaniel of Northfield, New Hampshire,
and Great Grandson of Evelyn McDaniel of Franklin, New Hampshire, as
well as many cousins, aunts, and uncles.  A Grandmother Joyce Emily May
Cripps Carr, Grandfather Edward Austin Carr, Uncle James Joseph Mello,
Uncle Michael Frank McDaniel, a Great Uncle William McDaniel, and a Great
Grandfather Rosaire F. Carter predeceased him.

A celebration of his life will be was held at the Bennett Funeral Home,
in Concord, New Hampshire on Saturday, December 29th, 2007.  Relatives
and friends were kindly invited to attend and quite a few did.   

Calling hours were held Saturday, December 29th, 2007 from noon to 2pm
with a service following at 2pm.  Reception followed at the Merrimack
Valley High School cafeteria in Penacook, New Hampshire.

Interment with military honors took place in the veterans lot in
Boscawen, New Hampshire the following Thursday January 3rd at 10:30 am.

Juctin was a caring person who would give the shirt off his back for
anyone.  Anyone that called him a friend had a true and loyal one.  He
was fun loving, caring, wanted to be loved and in love but didn't realize
that love comes in many forms, he was searching for that one true love
that would be there for him unconditionally unfortunately that didn't
happen for him.  Juctin had many troubles with life.  He had to
overcome ADD and a marriage that was falling apart because he was in Iraq,
which put quite a strain on him emotionally.  We thank you all for coming
and apologize for our daughter in laws disregard for respect toward
Juctin and his family.  Juctin knows now how much he was loved now and
"sees the big picture" and it was too bad that he didn't know before hand
the love we all have for him.  Let me say in closing that in your
everyday life if you feel something toward someone or just want to help them
a smile goes a long way, a friendly handshake or an ear to listen!
to these things mean all the world to a person and influence them to
make a bad day good.  Strive to be the best you can be like Juctin and
that would be quite the compliment to his life.  Believe that Juctin is
at peace and watches over those he loves and as he said to us while we
were all sleeping the evening after the funeral "we have but a short
time on this earth and shall meet again before we continue our journey
which will be longer than this one".  Blessed Be.
