Obituary

DANIEL W. BURNS

WARREN - Daniel Webber Burns, 68, of Warren, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on August 25, 2020. He died at Maine Medical Center in Portland due to complications from heart surgery. Born in Portland on June 25, 1952, he was the son of William H. and Beatrice (Miles) Burns and was a 1971 graduate of Rockland District High School. After H.S. he joined the Coast Guard and served his country towards the end of the Vietnam war. Later, he attended the University of Maine at Fort Kent studying engineering.

For over thirty years, Dan has been employed as a project researcher for the Department of Transportation for the State of Maine. Over the years his work involved travelling to various DOT projects throughout the state researching deeds, titles, and zoning. He loved his job.

On October 12, 2002, Dan Married Sonja Pease. A man of strong faith, he loved the Lord and was a great source of strength for Sonja. They loved attending the First Baptist Church of Waldoboro. Family life was also very important to them. They enjoyed travelling throughout the United States, to Europe, and taking cruises.

Dan’s hobbies included collecting and watching John Wayne and other Westerns. He also enjoyed metal detecting and prospecting for gold. He panned for gold in Alaska and Colton, California where the Gold Rush began. Dan was a staunch conservative and enjoyed reading political books of that nature.


Dan was a quiet, steady and reliable man. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. And, there never was a person who met him who didn't like him. He married into a large, loud, and sometimes obnoxious family but it didn’t seem to bother him. And that very family loves him and misses him very much.

Surviving is his wife of 17 years, Sonja Burns; Sonja’s children, Rachael (David) Umstead, Zacchary (Stephanie) Aiken; grandchildren, Henry & Hudson Umstead, Teagan and Christopher Aiken; brother, William Burns; special niece, Amanda Burns; Aunt Pat Donohue; father & mother-in-law, Nathan and Charlotte Pease, Jr., brother-in-law, Vick (Shanie) Pease, sisters-in-law, Stacey (John) McKenzie, and Molly (Wayne) Luce; several nieces, nephews and cousins including Tim (Joann) Clark and Kathleen (Wesley) Vosmus. He will be greatly missed by Fatso, his cat and his dog, Rosie. Dan was predeceased by his parents, his stepson, Vincent P. Galkowski and Uncle Guy Donohue.

Calling hours will be held from 5-7PM, Friday, September 4, 2020 at the Long Funeral Home, 9 Mountain Street, Camden. A memorial service will be held at 2PM, Saturday, September 5, 2020 at the First Baptist Church, 71 Grace Avenue, Waldoboro. Social distancing and masks are encouraged at both events.

Memorial gifts in his memory may be made to Pope Memorial Humane Society, P.O. Box 1294, Rockland, ME 04841 or to the Building Project at the First Baptist Church, PO Box 324, Waldoboro, ME 04572.

I first met Dan & Sonja in the Spring of 2016, when I began working in the group home they have in their house. Every evening Dan would make several trips downstairs to deliver the delicious meal Sonja had prepared. One evening when Dan was delivering dinner to the group home, I made the comment it was to bad the house didn't have a dumbwaiter. For a split second Dan looked at me with dismay, then with his quick wit he responded, "Sonja doesn't need a dumbwaiter, she has a Dan waiter." With a smile and a hardy heartfelt laugh Dan went on his way. Over the last 4 years I've often thought about this story, and it always makes me laugh. There are no words to describe what an honor and privilege it was to know Dan, and what a blessing it is to know people like Dan & Sonja. Dan will always be fondly remembered but deeply missed.
