Mr. Daley was the father of Ryan Daley, and Mrs. Daley's husband.
He thought of the Bible as "mumbo-jumbo, and never believed it.
Mrs. Daley too never became a believer. When the disappearances
occurred, he died in a plane crash, never becoming a believer. Mrs.
Daley went to search for him the following morning, but died in an
explosion, also never becoming a believer. That left Ryan Daley alone,
later discovering the death of both his parents.
