He was especially interested in the younger element of the city and one of the outstanding events of his life here was the reorganization and building up of the Watertown Troop of Boy Scouts of America. He was for ten years the scoutmaster of the local troop. Rev. Daniell also instituted the community vesper services here and his book reviews and sermons were a vital part of his work in Watertown. He was a student and his liberal education gave him an insight and interest in many lines of activity. He was a gifted speaker, a writer and student and lover of music. His death is a distinct loss to the community.
Possessed of a most pleasing personality and fine character he was a force for good in this community. A man of refined tastes and manners, he was always a welcome visitor in the homes of the people. His liberal education gave him the opportunity to impart well advanced ideas in his sermons while his manner of delivery impressed his auditors greatly and always attracted large congregations to hear him. He had a deep and abiding faith in Christianity and an earnest desire to do good along life’s pathway. Although a sufferer for many months, he always presented a cheerful nature which was the wonder of many who were aware of his condition and he always bore his sufferings with Christian fortitude and hope.
In the death of Rev. Daniell Watertown loses one of is best citizens who always took pride in anything that made for the benefit of its people. The boy scout movement was started here under this direction and he kept up a lively interest in the order until his death. His services in this respect cannot be measured by money, but they have left their stamp of character upon the youth in which he took a delighted interest. His friends and associates knew him as a man of sterling character and amiable qualities and his connection with many social organizations attests that phase of his personality. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved wife whose loss is so distinctly a loss to the entire city.
