Daniel was a 1983 graduate of Danville High School and attended the University of Kentucky, earning his MRI Certification. He was an avid UK Basketball fan. Daniel played the tuba in both the DHS band and the UK band. He loved to travel, eat and cook, sew and made wonderful leatherwork. He had a wacky sense of humor, was a people person and he could make anyone laugh, usually at their own expense.

In addition to his father, he is survived by his two favorite sons, Jackson Garnett of Boynton Beach, Florida and Alex Garnett of San Diego, California and his perfect sister, Joanna Garnett (Robert) Wilkirson of Lexington.
