A Celebration of Life was held on August, 31 in the Gym at the Recreation Association of Corcoran at 11a.m. for our beloved, Alan Daniels. Services were held Wednesday, August 21st at Faithful Central in Los Angeles.

As Alan would say, on April 21, 1977 a King was born in Los Angeles, Ca. to Athelea Kendrick and Alan Daniels, Sr. Alan passed away tragically early morning on August 4, 2019 at Kaweah Delta Hospital.
Alan was a vibrant, energetic soul. He captivated everyone around him with his stage presence and charm. He was a Proud Panther, Class of 1995 and would tell everyone he saw about CHS and how his class, era and his track career was the best! Construction was his forte; he loved the freedom in building things from scratch. He worked for local companies such as Cal-Agri as a grain inspector, J.G. Boswell at the Oil Mill, Buttonwillow, Mid-State Precast, and most recently for Cal Ag as a nester for Tulare Lake and Drainage.
Alan’s passion has always been music. A natural performer, he would light up the stage with his group UNCUT Records. When he wasn’t in his notebooks writing rhymes, Alan could be found crafting. He enjoyed creating and spent a lot of his free time planting, painting, and working on landscaping projects with his in-laws Nate and Vivian Butler.
His children, Alan Daniels, III and Destiny Daniels were his pride and joy. He would spend countless hours facetiming them in L.A. going over homework, lecturing about life decisions or just clowning around, pulling pranks. Alan was the neighborhood counselor. His household was open to any and every one. He loved to have his crew around and give them tough conversations about manhood and life decisions. He never met a stranger as he would greet everyone as if he knew them forever. Mentoring was his skill, a passion of his. He took pride in unofficially assisting his fiancé, Charissa Butler, coach various sports teams of basketball and cheer. The girls nicknamed him, Coach A. That was a title he treasured and spent a lot of time mentoring them on and off the court and sidelines. He was always ready to dish out fatherly advice!
Alan is preceded in life by Athelea Kendrick (mother), Brant Daniels (brother), Marcus Daniels (brother), Clydell Bryant (grandmother), Taira Thomas (cousin), Dexter (Uncle), Helen Young (grandmother), Odell (Uncle), and Leroy Gladney (grandfather).
He leaves behind his two children, Alan III and Destiny Daniels of Los Angeles; his Forever Love Charissa Butler; his father, Alan Sr. of Oklahoma; Step-Mom Lorna Daniels of Fresno; nine aunts of Los Angeles and Oklahoma areas: Veanda, Nina, Faye, Nan, Betty, Lois, Michelle, Elaine, Gladys; five uncles of Los Angeles and Oklahoma areas: Louis, Bradies, Charles, Kevin, Gary; 16 siblings: Tamika, Loren, Meaghan, Kyle, Gail, Calceil, Antonia, Gladys, Helen, Malcom, Nicholee, Kia, Monet, Tressa, Chris, and William; his in-laws, Nate and Vivian Butler of Corcoran, Ryan (Kristin, Ryan, Quincy, Reese) of Sacramento, and countless family members and friends.
Alan’s infectious personality and charismatic smile will be missed by many. As he would say, “Look up in the sky, everybody wants to be a star!”
