Lincoln Danielson of Seekonk, MA passed away early Thursday morning February 9th, 2017. He was a devoted husband of 62 years to his beloved wife Patricia (Boyle) Danielson and a proud father of six children and an even prouder grandfather to seven grandchildren.
Lincoln was a successful Mechanical Engineer for over 45 years. He obtained several patents, for various electronic devices and business machines, while working for companies including Sweda Cash Register, Computer Devices, Astromed, G-Tech and Joseph Pollack. He finished his final working years designing toys at Hasbro, where he would often bring home samples of what he was working on for his grandchildren.
He was born in New Britain, Connecticut to the late Lincoln Danielson and Frieda (Glaeser) Danielson. He inherited a love of photography from his father. He was an excellent photographer and documented much of the family’s life in these pictures. He was also a very talented artist who was able to recreate life-like imagery with a pencil and paper. In addition to photography, Lincoln collected cameras and stamps.
He was Korean War veteran and a 32nd degree Mason in Unity Lodge No. 148, in New Britain, for over 50 years. His love of engineering and design fostered a great interest in steam engines, both industrial and for the railroad. He never missed a visit to the “Steam Up” at the New England Wireless and Steam Museum.
