Daniel McCall Jr. Obituary

CHARLOTTE, NC

February 21, 1956 - January 16, 2024

Daniel Hall McCall, Jr. passed away peacefully with Marie at his side in his home on Tuesday, January 16. He was born on February 21, 1956, in Charlotte, NC. He was predeceased by his father, Daniel Hall McCall, Sr., sister, Nancy Woodell and brother, Scott McCall. He is survived by his mother Dolores McCall; his wife of 42 years, Marie; daughters, Ashlyn McCall, Hannah McCall (Anthony Byrne) and Claire Jampole (Michael), and grandchildren, Charles Hall McCall and Finley Ray Jampole.

He was a proud Charlottean, spending his youth on the East Side and graduating from Independence High School and Central Piedmont Community College. He met the love of his life, Marie, through his brother Scott in 1976 and they married in 1981. They settled in Windsor Park where they raised their three beautiful daughters. Dan worked for Empire Wine and Beer Distributors for 30 years, retiring as Area Sales Manager in 2013. While he was passionate about spirits, he especially enjoyed traveling for work and always returned home with gifts for his girls. During those early years, life revolved around time spent with his chosen family, his girls, and church activities.

He was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2013. After his retirement, he continued to explore new interests. He took classes and became a beekeeper, enjoyed estate sales and reselling found treasures. He and Marie traveled with friends to New England, Alaska, England, Scotland, Ireland and the American West. He wasn’t done exploring the United Kingdom and returned with his family to visit his homeland during Christmas of 2022.

Dan enjoyed the simple things in life and had a way of bringing love and humor into everything he did. He will be remembered for his sneaky sense of humor, his laughter, and his constant shenanigans. His friends benefited from his spiritual gift of sarcasm, which he retained to the very end. He was a surprisingly good pool player and taught his girls to never waste the meat, rake their leaves and tend their “ssrubberies.” He set the standard for what a father and husband should be, and he will be greatly missed by his family and his wide circle of friends. As Finley said, “He was a good one.”

“If you are already on thin ice, you might as well dance.” This is a good description of the life he and Marie lived. They knew for years that the end would come and at least some of what it would entail. Despite that, perhaps amplified by that, they LIVED large, full and fun. Throughout it all, the love he and Marie had for each other shone clearly.

His family is being served by the Cremation Society of Charlotte. His ashes will be spread by his family at the Giant’s Causeway in Ireland.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Calvary Church, 5801 Pineville Matthews Rd, Charlotte, NC 28226 or VIA Health Partners Hospice, 7845 Little Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28226.
