Daniel R. Smith
1955 - 2016
VAN BUREN - Daniel R. Smith, 61, died unexpectedly Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016. He was born June 3, 1955, in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, Canada, the son of the late Tom and Omerine Smith.
Dan graduated from Van Buren High School and Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute. He worked most of his life as a self-employed carpenter in Augusta, Waterville, and surrounding areas.
Returning to his hometown of Van Buren in 2013, he enjoyed being a local handyman.
He was a longtime member of the Masons in the Fairfield Siloam Lodge #92. He served as Past Master many times.
Dan was very proud of his recovery, and through his experience he devoted much of his time in assisting others in their own recovery.
Dan's wit and generous spirit were gifts to those who knew and loved him, and he will be forever cherished and missed.
He is survived by his two children, Calder Smith and Danielle Thibodeau; five siblings, Robert and wife Karen, Michael and wife Donna, Sandra, Tom, and Pamela; his grandson, Lucas; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Funeral services will be announced in the spring by Lajoie Funeral Home, 118 High St., Van Buren, where a memorial and Masonic service will be given.
