Aaron Robert Daniel
October 1, 1992 ~ December 1, 2023 (age 31) 31 Years Old
Aaron Robert Daniel passed away suddenly on Friday, December 1, 2023 at the young age of 31. He was born on October 1, 1992 at Bethesda Naval Hospital.
While we mourn the loss of Aaron, we also celebrate his extraordinary life and the love he shared with everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
From his earliest years, Aaron displayed an extraordinary capacity for compassion and empathy. He possessed a heart that overflowed with warmth and kindness, a quality that touched the lives of countless people. His selflessness and dedication to others defined him, making him an incredible person to know.
As a child, Aaron assumed the role of a confident and caring leader with his many brothers and sisters. He would guide them through life's pathways and sometimes mischievous adventures.
Aaron lived most of his life in Stafford County, Virginia where he worked as a server and manager at the Outback Steakhouse in Stafford for over 9 years. He took his work very seriously. He recently was moving up in the company. He transferred to an Outback Steakhouse in Maryland where there was great potential for advancement.
He then moved to upper Marlboro, Maryland with his boyfriend, Reese, until his final days. He talked about moving back to the Stafford area because of how much he missed his family.
This was Aaron’s favorite time of year. Taking after his mother’s incredible love for Christmas and the holiday season, such as the numerous large family gatherings, going to the adventure parks to see the Christmas lights, and decorating his own home. Recently he purchased a large Christmas tree that he was so proud of.
He is survived by his mother, Melissa Bailey; step-father, Patrick Bailey; father Roger Daniel; seven brothers and sisters, Megan, Cory (Bekah), Jaden, Kyler, Daelyn, Carly, and Patrick, Jr.; boyfriend Reese Gaskins; and many nieces and nephews.
May we find strength in each other, as we go through this difficult time, cherishing the beautiful memories we have of Aaron.
