Text size

Bangor - Alden Dingley Leavitt, 90, died on March 27, 2017. He was born December 18, 1926, to Lucy Cullinan Leavitt and Eben Leavitt, Sr., both of Bangor.
A veteran of the United States Army, Alden worked in and around Bangor until 1963 when he moved with his family to Rye, New York. He lived in New York, but returned to Maine, his beloved home state, at every possible opportunity. Upon retirement from AT&T in 1990, Alden moved back to Bangor to help care for his mother, and lived in the house in which he was raised.
Alden had many interests ranging from the arts (he was a sculptor), hunting, boating, fishing, golfing, gourmet cooking, and entertaining. For many years, Alden enjoyed membership in the Penobscot Valley Country Club where he and his wife, Judith Cunningham, were married in 1951.
In addition to his parents, Alden was predeceased by his devoted wife, Judith Cunningham Leavitt, with whom he shared fifty-five years of marriage; and siblings Lucy Leavitt Sanford and Eben Leavitt, Jr. He is survived by his three daughters: Lynn Marrison (Chad) of Brewster, New York and Woolwich, Maine; Karen Hanley (Brendan) of North Creek, New York; and Tracy Hughes (Bob) of Tulsa, Oklahoma; his grandchildren Sarah Tucker Price and Heather Marrison, Kevin and Dillon Hanley, and Chelsea Davenport; and by caring and committed friends of many years.
Services will be private for the family. Those who wish to remember Alden in a special way may make gifts in his memory to St. Joseph's Hospice, P.O. Box 1638, Bangor, ME 04402-1638. Condolences to the family may be expressed at www.BrookingsSmith.com
