Daniel was born October 28, 1969, in Fulton, MO, the son of Lawrence and Linda (Garrett) Redington.

On April 18, 1998, Daniel married Trisa Rush. They were happily married for over 25 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Jennifer Redington.

Daniel was a graduate of Paris High School.  He obtained his bachelor’s degree at Columbia College and spent 30 years employed with the Missouri Department of Corrections, ending his career as the Warden of the Northeast Correctional Center in Bowling Green, MO.

Daniel was a Veteran of the United States Navy, serving time on submarines.  He was grateful for the opportunity to serve his country and was extremely proud of his sons’ service.

He liked to go trout fishing and hunting. Daniel’s interest in coon hunting led him to founding the Monroe County Coon Hunters.  He also enjoyed playing golf and attended Mt. Airy Baptist Church, in which he was a Deacon.

Daniel was thankful for his friends and family and the time spent and love shared together.  His faith in Jesus Christ was the driving force behind his life, and he would willingly share his testimony with anyone that would listen.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are suggested to Mt. Airy Baptist Church and may be sent in care of Fenton-Kendrick Funeral Home, 104 S. Collier Centralia, MO 65240.
