Daniel Vanover, age 46 of Knoxville, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, March 15, 2022. He was a Giant to many, especially to his wife and family as a beacon of light and love. He was of interdenominational faith and a member of The Avenue Church in Morristown, TN.

His love for basketball continued, playing at both Carson Newman and Tennessee Wesleyan University. After college, he played defensive end for the Knoxville Thundercats Arena Football team. He was previously the owner of Diesel Maxx Performance Products and Slingshot Concrete Pumping. The last four years of his life he worked to help families buy and sell homes as a realtor for Realty Executives Associates.
