Daniel Ernest Darling, 90, of Cundy’s Harbor, Maine passed away at home on November 29, 2021, from colon cancer.
Born November 27, 1931, to Merton and Pauline Harley Darling, he graduated from Brunswick High School in 1950 and married the love of his life, Doris Smith Darling. He served in the US Navy before returning to “the call of the sea” where he diligently and faithfully worked in commercial fishing/lobstering off the coast of Maine for the next seventy years.
Daniel is survived by his wife Doris Ella Smith Darling, his brother Clinton Lossy Darling, four daughters (Donna, Cheryl, Susan & Kathryn), 12 grandchildren, and 21 great-grandchildren.
There will be a grand “Celebration of Life” later in the spring of 2022 to honor the legacy of this dearly-loved man of God!
