Alfred Daniel Sines, 95, of Alburgh, Vermont passed away peacefully on August 22, 2017, at Maple Lane Nursing Home in Barton, Vermont.

Dan was born in Morrisville, PA on April 11, 1922 to George W. Sines and Eleanor E. (Gallagher) Sines. He was the youngest of their five sons. Shortly after graduating from Morrisville High School in 1940, he entered the United States Army and served in Italy during WW II. Dan was awarded a Purple Heart, having been shot and seriously injured during combat.

Dan returned to Morrisville, PA and married Elizabeth "Betty" Lukens in 1946. Together they raised three children, who survive him; Cindy Bacigalupo (Randy Hickin) of Dummerston, VT, David Sines (Julie McCarthy Sines) of Bellows Falls, VT, and Marylouise Peters (Scott Robtoy) of Isle LaMotte, VT.

Dan was an electrician for Forrestal Research Center in Princeton, NJ and General Electric in Trenton, NJ. Dan and Betty retired to Isle LaMotte, VT in 1985. Betty predeceased him in 1999 shortly after their 53rd wedding anniversary.

In 2002, Dan met and married Annie Bradley of Alburgh, VT, who survives. Dan and Annie traveled extensively during their 15 years together, visiting many locations including Italy, Hawaii, a scenic train excursion through the Canadian Rockies, and a Mississippi River cruise.

Dan is also survived by his grandchildren, Amy Bagetis (Keith), Libby Beecher (Steve), Danny Bacigalupo (Katlyn), Christopher Sines, Jonathan Sines (Caitlin) and Sarah Peters and her boyfriend Matthew, and Dan's sister-in-law, Suzanne (Lukens) Woodcock of Brattleboro, VT.
