Reggie Daniel was an operationally trained consultant and designer with over 40 years of industry experience. He was the Director of Design at Camacho Associates. His work took him all over the United States in addition to the Middle East and the Caribbean. His eye for color, lighting, surfaces, and materials allowed him to design a space that was warm and inviting . He made sure they were operationally sound. He had invested many hours to earn critical food service certifications to ensure his projects were designed to the highest level of safety possible. These certifications include HACCP, Hospitality, and ServSafe. Reggie kept up with this industry and its trends.
Reggie would be considered a Renaissance Man, a person who has wide interests and is expert in several areas. He was a topnotch designer with all the knowledge to bring any commercial kitchen into this century. The other interests of Reggie were things that were old or classic. He owned a lilac ’56 Ford F100, Blue/White ‘55 Ford Fairlane, a Red ‘65 Ford F100, ’72 Airstream, ’13 Mini Cooper Hardtop, and a ’04 Honda VTX1300C Motorcycle. Can’t you just see him with his hair blowing in the breeze with any of these. He was a loving husband to Cherylanne Weaver, father to FCSI member Brett Daniel and Leah McKinley, and proud grandfather to five grandchildren.
He was proud that his son Brett was following in his footsteps. He was so proud of him that he posted this major recognition on his Facebook page. “Brett Daniel, BIM Manager & Project Manager, Camacho Associates, Atlanta, has been selected as the winner of Foodservice Equipment Reports’ 2017 Young Lion Award in the Consultant category.”
James Camacho FCSI, CSI, president of Camacho Associates and chair of FCSI The Americas said, “He was not only a partner, but my best friend, Reggie leaves a big hole in our firm and a bigger hole in my heart. I will always remember the giggle and the excitement in his voice when he found something new and just had to share with everyone.”
