- Lawrence Augustus Swenson passed away on December 11, 2017. He was known as "Larry" or "Gus" to most people, and was known as "Papa" to his grandchildren. He was 90.
Larry was born in Millinocket, ME, in 1927, to parents Augustus Swenson and Mary Ann Swenson (nèe Wickett). He is a Navy veteran. Larry married Rosalie Aldrich in 1948, and for over 50 years, they owned and operated Swenson Carpet and Video in Hampden, hardly leaving each other's sides. They were longtime residents of Patterson Street in Hampden, ME.
Larry is surely at peace, having joined his beloved Rose, who passed away in 2013. They were married for 64 years and hardly left each other's side. Larry is survived by his sons, Chuck, Marc, and Kirk, grandchildren, Jennifer, Jessi, Adam, and Daniel, and his cat, Muggy.
A Funeral Liturgy outside of Mass will be held at 12 p.m. on Friday, December 29, 2017, at the Hampden-Gilpatrick Chapel of Brookings-Smith, 45 Western Ave., Hampden. Relatives and friends are invited to call from 10:00 a.m. until time of service on Friday. The Rite of Committal will be held later in the spring. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com
