EASTON AND FORT FAIRFIELD - Albert L. "Pomp" Sawyer, 71, husband of Janet Boulier (Hewitt) Sawyer, passed away unexpectedly Sunday morning, January 18, 2015 at his Easton home.
He was born June 10, 1943 in Clearview, Carlton County, New Brunswick, the son of Mary Ann Sawyer. He attended school in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick and at the age of twelve Pomp began working in the logging industry, hauling logs with horses. After moving to the U.S., Pomp became employed by several area farmers including Don DeMerchant, Fort Fairfield for a number of years and Nightingale Enterprises, Fort Fairfield as a supervisor for many years. He most recently worked for Dave Adams (D.A.S.K.O.) Easton, in their farm operations.
Pomp loved to hunt and fish and was an experienced outdoorsman. He recently discovered the joy of vegetable and flower gardening, also loved to pick strawberries, and greatly enjoyed animals, especially his two dogs which he recently lost.
