Mr. McDaniel worked on my cars for years, and I always knew that I could trust him. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family.

My family and I moved to Waco in 1977, and the first time we had vehicle problems, one of my co-workers recommended McDaniel Garage, which is how I came to know Myron over these many years. People always worry about whether or not a mechanic is being honest with them, and that can be especially true when you are new to an area, but that was never the case with Myron. He always explained exactly what was needed to be done, and then did it for the cost he estimated, or generally less. He even solved some manufacturer's issues that no one else could. Obviously, he had our complete trust, and I am sure that many others felt the same way. I am also sure that he followed the steps of his father, and that Mark is following those of his Dad. We were sorry when he decided to close his shop, and think of him every time we drive by it. He was and will be missed.
