Robert's Story

BREWER - Robert L. Osgood, 86, died unexpectedly at his home, May 17, 2015. He was born May 5, 1929, in Easton, the son of Harry L. and Alfaretta (White) Osgood.

Robert graduated from Easton High School, Class of 1946. He served in the United State Air Force and United States Air Force Reserve. After his military service, he was a Telecommunication Lead Supervisor at Loring Air Force Base, 1961-1984.

He followed sports on TV, enjoyed horse races and loved playing the piano. "Greatest man I've ever known," is how he is described by most all who know him. Robert had an unusual sense of humor, and he loved his children and grandchildren dearly.

Osgood and his wife, Tamara, of Eddington; two daughters, Vicki Wilcox and Sandi Bishop, both of Bangor; a brother, Fred Osgood of Easton; seven grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
