Obituary

Daniel Thomas Jennings
Garland
Daniel Thomas Jennings passed peacefully on September 14, 2020. He is blessed to once again, be with his beloved wife of nearly 65 years, Nancy Barbara Kern Jennings, who passed March 17, 2020. He was the son of D. Thomas Jennings and Jane Elizabeth Winter Jennings, both of Parsons, Tennessee. Dan and Nancy had two daughters, Cynthia A. Jennings and Diane L. Rowland. They were blessed with four grandchildren, Erin Bridges Padham, Hannah Elizabeth Jennings Priest, Eve Nancy Rowland, and Noah Frances Jennings Priest. Sadly, they missed the upcoming birth of their first great grandson. Daniel had a love for spiders from age five and spent his professional career as a research scientist for the U.S. Forest Service. Dan was born in Fulton Kentucky, and at a young age his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he eventually met the love of his life, and began his scientific career. Dan and Nancy loved the natural beauty of the Southwest but felt a special connection to their home in the woods of rural Maine. They will be deeply missed, but the family feels blessed that Dan and Nancy are once again re-united. A private ceremony for both is planned.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Old Town Public Library, 46 Middle Street, Old Town, ME 04468; or the Garland Baptist Church, P.O. Box 76, Garland, ME 04939.

Dear Cynthia, Diane and Family,
Janie and I have many fond memories of our wonderful friends, Nancy and Dan, from impromptu visits leading to coffee and conversation to heading out to collect specimens. We were kindred spirits, Dan and the spiders and Bob and the snakes. We could never understand why the human aversion to spiders and snakes: too many legs, or none at all? We would conclude that this was learned behavior which cast our favorite critters in such an unfavorable light which just added to their allure for the Dans and Bobs of this world. We fantasized how wonderful it would be to find a population of black widows or timber rattlesnakes in Maine. We never gave up. We never said NO. Having moved back to CT last November we have missed our dear friends; any reconnect exacerbated by current conditions and then quickly, we ran out of time. . . .
Please pass along our thoughts and condolences to your family.
With much love,
Janie & Bob Fritsch

I was so sorry to hear about Dr. Jennings death. I worked for him when I was employed by the Forest Service in Orono. I counted and measured a lot of spruce budworms and reared trap nesting wasps for some of his studies. It was fun and interesting work and he was a good boss. After I left the Forest Service to begin teaching career I asked him to come to talk to my school about spiders. He gave a wonderful talk and the kids who were not keen on spiders beforehand got to appreciate them and maybe be a little less fearful. I am glad I got to know and work with him. He made a difference!

I first met Dan in Orono, Maine, in my first year of graduate school at the University of Maine. Earlier that year, I sent out a reprint request card to him at an old address in New Mexico (where I am from!!). It took many months for that little card to get forwarded to him, but when he got it, he walked across the street from the Forestry building where he worked to the Entomology building where I was, and introduced himself to me! We became friends and what a treat that was! He was always kind, helpful, generous with his knowledge and supportive. He helped me to know that studying spiders was a worthy endeavor and indeed one that could take the energy of a lifetime. When I had the opportunity to transfer to University of Cincinnati to work with George Uetz, he encouraged me to do that, even though I know he hated to see me leave Maine. I am sorry to hear that he has died but very glad to hear that many of his specimens are in the DMNS. Deepest condolences to his family and other friends.
