Scarborough, ME – Glenn Robb Hetzler, 73, of Gray, passed away on Monday, July 16, 2018 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House.
Robb was constantly learning and always lived on his own terms. He was self-taught in music, languages and carpentry, and intensely passionate about books, film, music and travel.
That love, passion and warmth extended to his personal relationships. He made friends easily, loved to banter with anyone, and many would find themselves in intimate and heartfelt conversations with Robb after just knowing him a short time. He especially loved sharing his passion for literature, music and film from all over the world.
Robb was born in Portland, Maine on August, 1, 1944 to Glennis Merle Flint Hetzler and Charles Robb Hetzler, D.O. After graduating from South Portland High School and the University of Maine Orono, Robb received his PhD in biochemical engineering from the University of California Berkeley in 1970. He had many stories about living in San Francisco in the sixties, and saw, among other things, some amazing concerts including the teenage Bob Dylan. Somewhere in one of his yearbooks Robb was voted "Most Likely to Succeed" and he certainly did live an incredibly rich and joyful life, keeping his overhead low, living frugally, and having the freedom and independence to explore all his interests.
Deciding that he wanted more control over his own life, Robb taught himself carpentry and returned to Maine. He built his house in Gray in 1978, where he lined every shelf with records, books and CDs. He was at home in nature, walking in the woods, cross-country skiing, working in his garden, sailing, biking or motorcycling. He never wasted anything, and would bristle if someone encouraged him to throw away something that was “perfectly good.”
Quoting one of his favorite musicians, Greg Brown, Robb said he was “rich in daughters.” He was a devoted father to his four daughters, Kristin Joler, Robin Hetzler, Heidi Hetzler and Luisa Hetzler, as well as his stepson, Jack Flagler. He also leaves behind his stepmother, Phyllis Hetzler and sisters Judy Hetzler Shedd, D.O., Linda Manchester and Mindy Keith. He will be missed by sons-in-law Bruce Joler, Angel and Stew Taffe, and daughter-in-law Yoojin Cho; grandchildren Joseph and wife Nichol, Ryan and partner , Brendon and wife Megan, Erick, Pamela, Magnolia, Henry and Oskar; and great grandchildren Isabella, Sophia, Olivia, Ayden, Caleb and Keegan; as well as nieces, nephews and countless friends. Robb and his surviving partner, Jody, were together for nearly 27 years.
Robb lived courageously and fully with lymphoma for 14 years with the wonderful help of the New England Cancer Specialists folks and the macrobiotic community. He died peacefully at Gosnell House with his family and an amazing group of hospice helpers on Monday, July 16 at 8:48 a.m.
A celebration of his life will be held at Farm Audubon Center, 20 Farms Rd. in Falmouth, Maine, on Saturday, December 22 at 12:30 p.m.
Memorial contributions may be made in Robb's honor to the Gray Public Library, 5 Hancock St, Gray, ME 04039 or The Gosnell Memorial Hospice House, 11 Hunnewell Road, Scarborough, Maine 04074.
Westbrook, ME - Nancy Ellen Herlihy, loving mother and grandmother, passed away on September 4, 2018 at the age of 76. Nancy was born on March 25, 1942 in Camden, Maine, the daughter of Lenora and George Davis. Nancy lived in Thomaston until she was 14 when her mother passed away. She moved to Portland to live with her aunt and uncle, Elizabeth and Martin Ney, and their four children and was raised as part of the family. Nancy graduated from Saint Joseph’s Academy in Portland in 1960. She moved to Boston and graduated from Boston City Hospital as a registered nurse in 1963.
Nancy found great purpose and pleasure in her career and worked in many hospitals in the Boston area including Mass. Eye and Ear, Boston City Hospital, and Beverly Hospital. She also worked in nursing homes and for private patients and formed compassionate relationships in each setting where she worked. At the end of her three decade career, she also enjoyed her work for the Massachusetts Peer Review Organization, both as a reviewer and manager.
Nancy was a loving mother to her two children, Kerry and Ryan, and a loyal and thoughtful friend to many people. Her greatest joy was her only granddaughter, Saoirse. She spent many hours sewing, cooking, and painting with Saoirse as a young girl and instilled within her a love for the creative arts, as well as a taste for Thai food and pedicures. Nancy also was a passionate animal lover and an advocate for rescue animals and always lived with at least two animals in her adult life.
Nancy enjoyed making clothes and jackets, especially if they included sequins and feathers. She also enjoyed quilting, painting, and crossword puzzles. She liked to make pillowcases to donate to local cancer centers and hospitals to brighten up the patients’ rooms. She was a proud and active member of the United Church of Christ, in Naples, Florida and then later at First Parish Church in Gorham.
She is survived by her two children, Kerry and Ryan and her granddaughter, Saoirse, of Gorham; her former husband and father of her two children, Frank Herlihy of Naples, Florida; her sister, Barbara Lyons of Scarborough; and her special cousins, Jack Ney and his wife Maureen of Portland; Lenny Ney and his wife Belinda of Cape Elizabeth; Elizabeth Williams and her husband James of West Bath.
There will be a private service at First Parish Church in Gorham later in the fall.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Animal Welfare Society PO Box 43 West Kennebunk, ME 04094
Raymond, ME - Thomas Robertson MacLean passed away peacefully at his home after a courageous battle with cancer on August 28th, 2018.
Woody was born on May 6th, 1951 in Portland, Maine, the son of Frank and Geneva MacLean. He grew up with his large family on a 27-acre farm in West Falmouth, Maine. He attended Falmouth Schools graduating in 1969 and later graduated from USM with an Associate’s Degree in Business.
Proudly following in his father’s footsteps, Woody started driving for the Metro in 1977, where he continued to work for 38 years. Woody was extremely proud of the work he did as an Executive Board Member of the Local 714 Union for the last 15 years, 9 of which he served as Vice President.
Woody was fiercely dedicated to his family, always making time to spend with his wife, children and grandchildren. He made sure to never miss a family gathering, genuinely interested in his siblings, nieces, and nephews' lives - and of course, the heaps of food that were always there! As a father, Woody always made “chore time” fun. Going to the junkyard for a car part, or heading out to pick up some hay bales for the goats always turned into an adventure for his kids!
Woody was always there to help anyone out. Forever selfless in everything he did, whether it be selling his sailboat to buy a home for his new family, or raising chickens and goats to teach his children valuable lessons, Woody helped us all find joy in the small things. Nothing ever slowed him down. He loved riding his motorcycles with his friends and family, frequently taking trips around southern Maine. He was a diehard Giants fan (though the Pats were a close second), and never missed a Superbowl weekend with his brothers and friends from the Newport area.
Woody is survived by his loving wife of almost 40 years, Judy Legere MacLean of Raymond; his son, Samuel MacLean and partner Erin Gaudet of Westbrook; his daughter, Lauren MacLean and partner Kristofer Rodgers of Portland; his son, Noah MacLean of Casco; his grandchildren Felix and Haven of Westbrook; Siblings John MacLean and partner Janice Rattray of Gray, Jerri MacLean and partner Sharon Huggard of Scarborough, Paul MacLean of Plymouth, Gail MacLean of Gray, Kathryn Copp and husband Gerald of Cumberland, Sterling MacLean of Falmouth, James MacLean and wife Tammie of Gray, and Bonita Quinn and husband Colin of Skowhegan; his Stepmother Lucy Ayotte and husband Danny of Windham; as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Frank and Geneva MacLean, Mother in Law Arline Goodwin, and beloved dog Chewy and cat Yellow.
Services will be held Saturday, October 13th at 2pm at the West Falmouth Baptist Church, 18 Mountain Road, Falmouth, Maine. In lieu of flowers, Woody would like donations to be made to the West Falmouth Baptist Church.
