Joseph Michael Daniels (Skip)

Joseph Michael Daniels passed away Friday, December 1, 2017 at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. He was born in Kansas City, MO on June 12, 1939. He was the son of Joseph and Charlotte Daniels, the oldest of four children. Following graduation from high school, he joined the Air Force to see the world and was assigned in Topeka, KS. He then served at a radar site in Alaska, and ended up at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona. Returning to civilian life, he spent 40 years with the J.C. Nichols Company as an operating engineer – affectionately known as “Mr. Plaza”.

Skip is survived by his wife, Patti Daniels of the home, son Jeff (Kate) Roades and granddaughters Courtney and Rachel Roades of Olathe, KS, daughter Jeni Wakefield and grandsons William and Preston Wakefield, Olathe and daughter Charlotte Daniels of Surprise, AX. He is also survived by his siblings Bob (Julie) Daniels, Anita Daniels and Carol (Steve) Smith and nephew Tom and nieces Beth and Dana. He will be greatly missed by all of the family and especially his beloved 4-legged companions, Sadie and Snickers.

Skip was competitive and loved all sports. He spent many hours coaching and officiating youth football and basketball. He had a passion for cars, especially mustangs and enjoyed racing. He was always up for a good time and had a joke to share. He enjoyed a good game of golf and will be missed by many of his buddies at Tanners, Kelly’s and Romanelli”s.

The family expresses their gratitude to all the staff of compassionate care givers at Shawnee Mission Medical Center for their support and kindness not only to him, but to his family as well.

A Celebration of Life will be arranged for a later date. The family requests no flowers, but donations to the Great Plains SPCA animal shelter.
