Daniel Thomas Jennings
Daniel Thomas Jennings passed peacefully on September 14, 2020. He is blessed to once again, be with his beloved wife of nearly 65 years, Nancy Barbara Kern Jennings, who passed March 17, 2020. He was the son of D. Thomas Jennings and Jane Elizabeth Winter Jennings, both of Parsons, Tennessee. Dan and Nancy had two daughters, Cynthia A. Jennings and Diane L. Rowland. They were blessed with four grandchildren, Erin Bridges Padham, Hannah Elizabeth Jennings Priest, Eve Nancy Rowland, and Noah Frances Jennings Priest. Sadly, they missed the upcoming birth of their first great grandson. Daniel had a love for spiders from age five and spent his professional career as a research scientist for the U.S. Forest Service. Dan was born in Fulton Kentucky, and at a young age his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he eventually met the love of his life, and began his scientific career. Dan and Nancy loved the natural beauty of the Southwest but felt a special connection to their home in the woods of rural Maine. They will be deeply missed, but the family feels blessed that Dan and Nancy are once again re-united. A private ceremony for both is planned.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Old Town Public Library, 46 Middle Street, Old Town, ME 04468; or the Garland Baptist Church, P.O. Box 76, Garland, ME 04939.
