Stephen Tucker Daniels

July 17, 1942 – May 24, 2021

Steven Tucker Daniels died on May 24, 2021, at Taos, New Mexico.

Born July 17, 1942, he was the son of Jane Bernice (Tucker) Daniels and Cecil Lamar Daniels. He graduated from Perry High School in 1960.

Steve was a kind, loving, gentle man, who loved Taos and New Mexico. Owning several businesses, “Needlepoint of Taos” and “Starving Artist’s Gallery,” was his joy and a source of his endless generosity.

Later in life, for eight years, he was the Pastor of Emanuel Church in Penasco, NM. He was beloved by his congregation and he in turn loved them and regarded them as family. His devotion and energy and sermons will be missed.

Steven was preceded in death by his parents, an infant brother, and his brother, Philip Cooke Daniels. Also preceding him in death was his life time love and business partner, Richard L. May.

He is survived by one cousin, Judy Beals and her two sons, Mathew and John Beals and dear friend, Randy Levi Balance.
