He married Patricia Hamm in Memphis,Tennessee. Not sure what year but they had a daughter October 24 1970. They were divorced shortly after. Je died in Memphis, Tennessee December 19 1979. The daughter's name was Leigh Ann Simpson which was changed to Cruse. Leigh was my mother so Daniel would be my maternal grandfather..that's all I know. I'm not sure why he or anyone in his family never had anything to do with my mother but I'd like to.
