Uncle Dallas Bamberry wrote Mr Daniel was an "innocent passenger in a car accident" and the family was having an extremely hard time.
"A beautiful 16-year-old boy, a son, a sibling of six, a twin brother, and as life would have it, was soon to be a father to his own twins," he wrote.
"He was adamant about becoming a dad, and he knew he was going to be a good one, we all did.
"A young man who was full of life, was young and free, always happy to help others."
Close friend Shanelle Swift said she "can't express how much we loved him".
"Brock is and will always be remembered for his cheeky personality, his love for his girlfriend and the babies on the way, and also all of his family and friends that he cherished very much," Ms Swift said.
"I'm going to miss your smart ass ways, sparing with you, singing our hearts out to music, sculling down cruisers and living our best life.
"He had a beautiful soul and will always have a place in our hearts forever."
Tributes have also begun to flow for the teenager, with friends remembering him as a funny boy "who always made us weak to the knees".
Friend Trinitii Vanbrugh posted a heartfelt tribute online for the teen she "loved very much".
"You lit up the room & (sic) made everyone laugh," Ms Vanbrugh wrote online.
"I just keep thinking of me, you & (sic) Shanelle playing murder in the dark in the middle of the night all the time & fully getting into each other & (sic) when we stayed in Brisbane & (sic) you got upset so you walked out of the hotel, & (sic) I came to find you AND SOMEHOW you were the one that ended up buying me Krispy Kremes to make us both happy, you're a beautiful soul.
