Daniel graduated in 1956 and for the past 27 years each month went to lunch with his classmates - that was important to him. I believe Lawrence Nash never missed a luncheon. He, along with Allison Gibbs, built VW dune buggies, along with Jim Alders and Eric. We would load them up and head to Moosehead areas camping and exploring the woods - usually a muddy good time had by all. Moose hunting with his siblings were happy times. He enjoyed feeding and watching birds. He loved his dogs, Lolly, a yellow lab, and Spunky, a small white poodle. He also enjoyed and made Spunky and our white cat, Mr. Snowman (about the same size) jealous, not on purpose, but they both knew they were loved and wanted to be in his lap. Imagine that of Daniel! He did love animals. We had cows, sheep, goats that we so enjoyed, hens and roosters, ducks, name it, a horse, Palamino named Amigo. Bethany broke him in when she was 10. We raised a Holstein bull that was taller than Daniel - Bull Diamond, he dressed 911 lbs. There is so much I could write about. His love for Jesus - he didn't always show it. He enjoyed going to church. He would never touch his meal until the blessing was said. After every meal, he told me thank you. He prayed for me and our children. His favorite sandwich was peanut butter and jelly. Daniel was a jack of all trades kind of person. He was a very hard worker, and everything he did had to be right. He often mentioned he only had three jobs he began while in high school. He worked for Lawrence Brown at Knox Lumber on Conway Road for 6 years, Camden Farmers Union delivering grain, often carrying two 100# bags at a time. He also delivered oil and worked in the store. During that time we built our house without electricity, then got a generator. We soon filled our home with our children. Then he went to work at St. Regis Paper Mill in Bucksport where he spent 34 1/2 years. A long drive each day, but he liked his jobs there and connected with all his fellow workers. He totally enjoyed his 1951 black Tudor Ford. We belonged to the Highway Legions Antique Cars Club for many years. Friday nights at Reny's car show was a highlight each week. We also went on many day trips. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 30th 11 a.m. at Faith Temple, Lincolnville Avenue, Belfast.
