Daniel was persistent in his passion to join the Marines and was extremely proud of having been chosen as the Alpha Company Honor Graduate from Parris Island Recruit Depot June 5, 2020. He possessed tenderness, empathy, and kindness for others. He engaged in service projects, both with church youth outreach ministries, as well as a WWOOF volunteer program at a monastery in Thailand, where he fell in love with the country and its people.Daniel's heart was always united with his beloved French family, the Burners, as well as with many cherished memories of family times on the Mediterranean coast of France

"When a soul is extinguished in this world, it is because it shines in another world made of beauty. More powerful than death is the presence of the Absent in the memory of the living. Daniel's memory will remain for us an invisible presence forever in our hearts." - Houria Burner

He was a bright light in all our lives. Our silent tears will forever flow, but we know he has been reunited with the saints in heaven.
