- Gerald Champney passed away January 16, 2017. Gerald was the son of Sumner Champney and Alice Emerson. Gerald graduated from Hampden Academy in 1958. After graduation Gerald went into the Navy for 4 years. After the Navy, Gerald sat on the doorstep of the Bucksport Mill for 2 weeks until they hired him. Gerald worked at the Bucksport Mill for 39 years until retirement. Gerald married his sweetheart Rebecca Collins in 1968. It was a love like no other. They loved each other unconditionally. Rebecca died December 7, 2016. We do believe they could not be apart and Rebecca called him to be with her. Gerald leaves behind two daughters. Patricia Moody and her husband Dwain Moody of Bucksport. And Pam Johnson and her husband Frank Johnson of Stockton Springs. Gerald has 5 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. We will miss you deeply... until we meet again.
