A fourth generation Californian and a business graduate of the University of Southern California, Milton F. (Bud) Daily, Jr., is the managing general partner of the M.F. Daily Investment Company, a Ventura County-based property.
A partnership formed in 1962 by Mr. Daily and his father, M.F. Daily Investment Company has been engaged over the years with a wide variety of growth and development projects in Ventura County including apartment buildings, condominiums, commercial centers, and banks. Mr. Daily has also been involved in the Sunkist citrus business and is a past president of the Ventura Pacific Company. In addition, for 10 years, he was involved in the golf management business.
Bud and his wife, Heather, are the proud parents of three grown children and grandparents of two. Their son, Scott Daily, serves as a president of the Board of Regents for Thomas Aquinas College, and a nephew and niece are graduates of the College. Mr. Daily’s uncle, the late J. Edward Martin, was a long-time member of the Board of Governors, as well.
Says Mr. Daily, “My uncle’s commitment to Thomas Aquinas College sparked an interest in me that has grown over the years. He was a person who had a great influence on my life, and I am so honored to be able now to carry on his legacy of service to the College.”
The Dailys have a keen interest in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel. “The Chapel strikes us as a wonderfully significant contribution to Ventura County, a real identity point. Not only does the Chapel reflect the principles of our faith, it is reminiscent of the many beautiful churches and cathedrals we have viewed during our European travels. Seeing an edifice such as this here in our part of the world is extraordinary.”
Mr. and Mrs. Daily reside in Camarillo, Calif., where they are active parishioners at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church.
