Brunswick - Daniel R Higgins, 61, of Brunswick passed away on Tuesday February 6th surrounded by his family after a short illness. He was born on September 24th 1956, the son of Ralph & Eunice Higgins, and graduated from Morse High School in 1975.
Daniel spent many years driving trucks all over North America, many days & nights in the forest products transport industry, hauled dirt, wood, cows, cars, asphalt, and was a self taught heavy equipment operator, all the while making friends wherever he would go.
He had the unique ability to talk to anyone anywhere in any setting & wind up making friends for life. Dan was happy behind the wheel of a Peterbilt big rig, or at the Fryeburg Fair sitting in with the ladies knitting club! He would help anyone in need, sometimes driving all night to do so. He inherited his mother’s quick wit & humor and could brighten anyones day with just a smile. Dan loved country music, farming & animals, race cars & street rods, boating, but most of all spending time with family & friends. He spent the last few years fulfilling a lifelong dream of moving west and living in Arizona.
Dan will be loved and missed by his girlfriend Lynn Weaver of Mesa, Arizona; his son, Cory Higgins of Brunswick; his two sisters,
Marcia Lavigne & Margaret Higgins; A brother Allen Higgins; numerous nieces & nephews, cousins, and friends all over the world.
