George's Story

OAKFIELD - Oakfield - George Nixon Clark, 83 passed away Saturday June 13, 2015 in Patten, Maine. George was born at the family homestead in Oakfield, Maine on March 8, 1932, the son of Holman D. Clark and Harriette (Nixon) Clark.

George graduated from Oakfield High School in 1950. He served in the U. S. Army in Korea during the Korean Conflict from 1952-1954. After returning home to Oakfield, George worked for 40 years as a passenger coach driver for the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad Company and the Cyr Bus Line daily route from Bangor to Van Buren and Caribou. Over the years of driving the run, George would extend a helping hand and generous acts of kindness to patrons while always maintaining the highest level of courtesy and professionalism. George also drove scores of memorable special charter coach tours throughout North America including a senior group excursion from Maine to Alaska and back. George was an avid motorcyclist and in his free time particularly enjoyed many wonderful short and long distance adventures cruising on his Gold Wing with close friends David and Lois Haggerty from Houlton. George also volunteered countless hours to maintain local portions of the snow sled trails.

George is predeceased by his parents, sisters Alca (Clark) Bechard and Lillian (Clark) Lenentine and brother-in-law Weldon Lenentine. Surviving are sister Sandra (Clark) Estes and husband George of New Hampshire, daughter Kimberley Clark Rosen and husband Richard of Bucksport, granddaughter Rachael Barrow, husband Chris and daughter Brooklyn of Williamsburg, Virginia, grandson David and partner Christine and daughter Chloe of Bucksport, first wife of 32 years, Dolores (Roach) Botting, his current wife, brother-in-law Denis Bechard of Hallowell and beloved special nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Later this summer the family will host a memorial for all of those who wish to remember George.
