Whitehall-Joseph F. Daniels, 75, passed away unexpectedly on November 6, 2017 at the Glens Falls Hospital. Joseph was born on November 16, 1941 in Staten Island, NY. He was the son of Isabella (Barry) and Joseph Daniels.

Joe was a 1958 graduate of Whitehall High School. Following high school, Joe joined the Marines and served his country from 1959-1963. Joe has been driving trucks since 1964 and has been working for St. Anne Transportation for the past 25 years. 

Joe married the love of his life, Joan Therrien, on September 12, 1964. They recently celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary. Joe cherished his family above all else.  Joe spoiled his children and grandchildren and always made it a point to be present at all of their activities and sporting events. He also enjoyed NASCAR and boxing. Every Thanksgiving you could count on him participating in the Turkey Bowl, or in later years, watching as a fan.

In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his sister Evelyn and brother Richard. Survivors include his wife Joan, his children Kim Daniels, Melia St.Clair (Thomas), and Joseph Daniels (Heather), all of Whitehall, and his grandchildren Ryan and Daniel St.Clair and Aiden and Ayla Daniels. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
