KENDUSKEAG - Stephen M. Barker, passed away peacefully and went to his heavenly home April 20, 2016, with his family by his side. He was born January 7, 1960, in Bangor, the son of John E. and Muriel (Emery) Barker.
Stephen grew up in Bradley, graduating from Old Town High School, class of 1978. He attended college for a year, worked shortly as a carpenter, then went to work driving delivery trucks. Lastly, he loved his job working for Pine State Trading Company where he was always known as dependable, and could be counted on for going "above and beyond" to help his co-workers.
