Robert Daniel Death – Cause of Death – Robert Daniel was identified as the victim who died in the candle factory collapse on Friday night, 10th of December 2021. The victim was killed as he was supervising seven work-release inmates at the Mayfield Consumer Products facility when it was hit by a tornado. Robert worked as a correctional officer with the Graves County Jail.
Jailer George Workman said in a Facebook post made on Monday, 13th of December 2021 that Daniel “gave his precious life while physically ensuring that his 7 inmates were moved into a safe location, from which they all survived. He was just unable to get there himself in time. Like my savior, he too gave his life for others. This is so much for me to process.”
He died a hero and will be greatly missed by his family, colleagues and friends. The funeral arrangements and obituary will be released by the family at a later date.
