The son of Walter Leland and Nellie Neilson (Truitt) Daniels, he was born October 27, 1935 in Stahl, Missouri. On May 7, 1955 in Kirksville, Missouri, Spike was united in marriage to Margie Linder.

Spike graduated from Novinger High School with the Class of 1953. Beginning in 1956, Spike served two years in the United State Army stationed in Germany. Since 1958, he lived and farmed in the community of Pure Air. Farming was a way of life for Spike. Spike also worked in concrete and construction many years.

Fishing with friends and hunting quail and wild turkey were favorite hobbies. Hunting dogs were always nearby companions. In recent years, he designed, crafted, and shared furniture and boxes of wood. Spike could see the beauty in any piece of oak or walnut.
