Daniel Hugh Nugent



Daniel Hugh Nugent, age 67, of Lowell, left this world riding his Goldwing Friday, July 20, 2018. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Jennifer Nugent; parents, Joseph “Stub” and Jane Nugent; father- and mother-in-law, Bud and Kate Lyons; and nephew, Kevin Anderson. Dan is survived by his wife of 47 years, Barb; children, Sheryl Fielbrandt and Joe (Jill) Nugent; sisters, Mary (Joe) Anderson, Sue (Fred) Rentsman, Barb (Daryl) Anderson; brother-in-law, Rich Lyons; sisters-in-law, Betty Lyons and Chris (Bruce) Packard; grandchildren, Evelyn, Jacob, Lily, Mike and Drew Fielbrandt, Jackson and Maverick Nugent; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncle and close cousins. Dan worked in the welding industry most of his career, meeting many interesting people along the way. Dan was a leukemia survivor for the last six years.  He and his wife loved to ride their Honda Goldwing motorcycles all over the country and traveled throughout all 48 contiguous states. However, family came first. He was a good father, happy to help his children. He loved doing things with his family whether it be camping trips when his children were young, or just watching the grandchildren play as they were growing up. When Dan said he invited the family to go camping, it usually meant he had called his sisters and invited their families too. Dan was a handyman to his family and took on projects such as building “cubbies” to put their things in after school or bunk beds for their room. He even took on remodeling work for family members throughout the years. Dan was always happy to help in any way he could when it came to working with his hands.
