Obituary

Daniel M. Sumrall, Sr. was the youngest child born to Jack Sumrall & Mary Esther Smith-Sumrall on January 27, 1965, at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg, MS. As a boy, during his military tour, and even up to his death, Dan learned how to survive through struggles. On June 2, 2021, God decided that He needed this strong warrior to help prepare for ‘things to come.'

Upon graduating from Sumrall High School in 1983, Daniel answered the Nation’s call to serve his country. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1983. He ultimately ranked as Sergeant First Class, serving in California, South Korea, South Carolina, North Carolina and New York.

Daniel was united in holy matrimony with Alicia Pittman. To this union 2 children were born: Amber Sumrall & Daniel M. “Djay” Sumrall, Jr.

After his military service of 15 years, Dan studied and received his MBA. He was employed with Merck Pharmaceuticals for over 17 years working in the Southern District Area. Dan was also a businessman, owning his own horse ranch, “Circle ‘S’ Riding Stables," in Sumrall, MS.

At an early age, Dan became a member of St. Louis Baptist Church in Sumrall, MS. He participated in the choir and was an usher. Over the years, he attended many churches because of his military relocations. He served for many years as a member of Word of Faith Christian Center, Hattiesburg, MS, under the leadership of Bishop Orlando R. Burt. His present membership was at CrossPoint Community Church, Hattiesburg, MS, under the leadership of Dr. Dean Register, where he was a Prayer Team member.

Dan was preceded in death by his Father, Jack Sumrall; Oldest Brother, Fredric D Sumrall; Father-in-Law, Alton Pittman; Sister-in-Law, Altina Pittman; and his most loved animals: Figure, Show Horse, Radar & dog/companion/protector, Joe (if you touched Dan, you had to deal with Joe!!)

He leaves to cherish his life with so many good memories: Wife, Alicia Sumrall; 1- Daughter, Amber Sumrall (Hattiesburg, MS); 1-Son, Daniel M. ”Djay” Sumrall, Jr (New Orleans, LA); 1- Grandson, Isaiah Evans (Hattiesburg, MS); his Mother, Mary Esther Sumrall (Sumrall, MS); Mother-in-Law, Frances Pittman (Sumrall, MS); 3-Sisters: Mary J. Porter (Hattiesburg, MS); Dianne Prince (Hattiesburg, MS); Narcissus “Sissy” White (Sumrall, MS); 2-Brothers: Joe “Coke” Sumrall (Hattiesburg, MS); Richard Sumrall (Sumrall, MS); Sister-In-Law: Sandra Pittman (Hattiesburg, MS) and Duchess Pittman (Meridian, MS); Brother-in-Law, Bobby White, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives & friends. Last but certainly not least, his best friend & buddy, Larry Fairley (Sumrall, MS).

DANIEL HAD A SPECIAL IMPACT ON MANY LIVES. HE WAS A PRAYER WARRIOR, A STRONG MAN & A MEEK MAN BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE FOR ANIMALS. HE MENTORED SEVERAL PATIENTS AT OCHSNER’S HEART CENTER, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS IN CRITICAL HEALTH. HIS GUIDANCE, LEADERSHIP, COURAGE, DIGNITY, BEING FAMILY-ORIENTED & POWERFUL PRAYERS HAVE AFFECTED US ALL.

“WE LOVE YOU, DANIEL. PLEASE REST NOW, IN PEACE.”

We got to know Daniel in Sunday School at CrossPoint a few years ago. In fact, not too long ago, I found his business card in my Bible. Daniel was an awesome person to get to know. My husband and I thought a lot of him.
Our prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
