Dr. Roy Daniel

Dr. Roy E. Daniel, a former resident of Silsbee, passed away peacefully at 96 years of age at his home in San Antonio surrounded by his children. Born in 1921 in a small town in East Texas, he played football at Silsbee High School and delivered ice by a horse drawn wagon to make extra money during the summer. He began college at Stephen F. Austin and like all young men at that time, WW II interrupted the innocence of that generation. He married his high school sweetheart in 1942, Wanda Joyce Morgan, also of Silsbee, prior to reporting for combat duty. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps and became a pilot of the B 24, the heaviest bomber in the US fleet. Shot down over Yugoslavia on his 25th mission, he ensured that his entire crew abandoned the aircraft to safety below. Battling a parachute that had pre-opened, he managed to bail out seconds before his plane exploded.
