He loved to read, was a military history buff and an avid Red Sox fan, and enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening.

Funeral services were held Dec.12 from the John P. Rowe Funeral Home of Marlborough, with burial held at a later date in St. Mary Cemetery in Biddeford, Maine. Memorial donations may be made to either the St. Jude’s Children Hospital, St. Jude’s Place, Memphis, TN 38108 or to Veterans Shelter, 65 Grove St., Worcester, MA 01605.
