Harold Eugene McDaniel, known to all who loved him as Bud, 87, of St Petersburg, passed away on February 26, 2023, at Bay Pines VA Medical Center.  Born in Ohio on July 1, 1935, he was the son of the late Harold and Mary (Thomas) McDaniel.  After graduating high school, he proudly served in the United States Navy.  He later went on to pursue a career as an Ohio State Trooper and after moving to Florida as Property Clerk in the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.  He was an avid sports fan staying true to his beloved Ohio State and Pittsburgh Steelers.  He had a respect and appreciation for firearms, and played with remote control helicopters and airplanes.  As a devoted family man, he was the best father and grandfather. Every conversation ended the same way and knowing that we will see you again, we end our earthly time together with "Love you too, Honey!"
