ROCKLAND — Daniel E. Ames, 73, died Thursday, October 10, 2019 at the Sussman House in Rockport after an extended illness.

Born in Rockland, June 28, 1946, he was the son of Dennis E. and Norma P. Richards Ames. Daniel attended local schools.

Danny’s gregarious personality made him a special friend to anyone he met. He always enjoyed their approval when someone would tell Danny, “I love your hat.”

He loved going to day program and was proud of the things he made for his sister. He recently had given her a birdhouse he made.

He enjoyed going to all the fairs but would always say, “No, no, no, I don’t like rides!” He also enjoyed playing Checkers and would always exclaim, “I’m going to win!” His favorite music was anything by Elvis and he always looked forward to getting coffee at Dunkin Donuts.

Danny loved the Lord and would go around singing every morning. He held a special place in his heart for everyone at The Lincolnville House where he lived. They were all so good to Danny.

Danny was predeceased by his parents and his brother Gary.

He is survived by his son, Jeremiah Ames Allan and his wife Milissa, their children, Jeremiah, Jackson, and Brooklyn Allan; his daughter, Holly Ames Allan and her son Rynan Allan all of Rockland; his sisters, Judith Steeves, Patty Poland, Paula Watson all of Rockland, and Debra Hendrick of Union; as well as many nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Danny’s Life will be held Thursday, October 24, at 11 a.m., at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland. Pastor Mark Holden will officiate.

A visiting hour will be held from 10 to 11 a.m., prior to the service. Interment will follow in Achorn Cemetery.
