CALAIS - Alvin S. Daggett, 89, passed away Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, at a Bangor nursing facility. Alvin was born May 30, 1924, in Danforth, son of the late Frank and Lila (Weeks) Daggett.

Alvin graduated from Danforth High School and enlisted into the Army Air Corps where he served as an airplane mechanic. Following his service, he returned home and helped his father in the family business working road construction. While working on the roads in Baring he met his future wife, Dorothy Stewart, whom he married in Calais on July 8, 1955.

He was a member of Calais United Methodist Church, a life-member of the American Legion in Danforth where he was a member for over 60 years, served as a Boy Scout leader, and enjoyed hunting and fishing.
