MADISON - Daniel Corson, 30, of Madison passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 18,
2019 in Athens.
He was born on October 5, 1988 in Skowhegan, a son of Ann Kerby and Ernest Corson. Danny
was educated in the local schools.
He was passionate about cars and would talk about them to anyone who would listen. He had a
natural gift for mechanic work and fixing things. He enjoyed taking things apart and rebuilding
them. He liked snowmobiling, four-wheeling, and dirt bikes. He would look on the side of the
road for old cheap machines to tinker with and get them running again.
Danny was most recently employed as an oil technician at Wal-Mart in Skowhegan, where he
also worked in other departments of the store prior. Before that he also worked in tree service.
He did a lot of odd jobs for people he met. He enjoyed working outdoors and working with his
hands. He always found ways to keep himself busy.
He went to the annual 4th of July gatherings at his Meme’s house in Athens to watch the parade
and enjoy good company. He loved the town of Athens and the country lifestyle. He cherished
his family and was willing to help them in any way he could. He was generous by nature and
would offer help to anyone who needed it. He was guarded with his emotions, but underneath it
all he had the biggest heart. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always thoughtful of
others. He made it a point to show his son how to be a proper gentleman and a good friend.
Danny thought the world of his son. He was taken far too soon from this earth and will be deeply
missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He was one of a kind.
