WEST BALDWIN - Daniel William Trafford, 58, of West Baldwin passed away on July 11, 2016. He leaves behind his wife, Helen Terri (Litrocapes) Trafford; sons Nicholas Jon Trafford and Christopher Jon Trafford, Chris' wife Sarah and three grandchildren, Ian, Eliza and Zach. He also leaves behind his mother, Virginia Juth Trafford; sisters Donna Trafford Ward, Deborah Trafford Payton, Darlene Trafford Leavitt, brothers Darryl, Dean and Donald Trafford, many nieces and nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald Wesley Trafford.
Dan was born on Feb. 11, 1958, in Duluth, Minn. In 1963, the family relocated to Poland Spring and eventually settled in Baldwin. He attended Sacopee Valley High School. Over the years, he worked as a farmhand, a machinist and expanded his career to cover all aspects of excavation, forestry and trucking. Dan was mechanically-gifted and loved to figure out how machinery worked. He enjoyed rebuilding old equipment and bringing it back to life. He proudly sculpted their land and handcrafted their home on Douglas Hill.
Dan enjoyed boating and sailing, exploring Maine and New Hampshire's historic landmarks, and spending time with his grandchildren in his workshop and at the soccer field.
A memorial service is scheduled for Monday, July 18, from 5-8 p.m. at Watson Neal & York Funeral Home in Cornish. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Dan's life.
