Carl Condon, 80
Freeport - Carl Raymond Condon, age 80 of Freeport and Fort Myers Beach, Florida made his transition January 10, 2014 at 5:19pm. He passed peacefully at home with loved ones at his side.
He was born in South West Bend in Durham, Maine at the Brown Family Farm on December 3, 1933 to parents Osborne William Condon and Esther Mae Brown. As the first born, he spent his early childhood just "up the bend" and graduated from Edward Little High School in 1952. He married Alice Ann Dogan of Freeport the same year. A carpenter by trade, he built their home in Freeport where they had five children. Always industrious, he worked many jobs including reserve police officer in Freeport for fourteen years and Deputy Sheriff for Cumberland County for five years. He did this all while continuing his family gardening tradition and attending college at USM. He worked for E.E. Taylor and Central Maine Power for many years, before he and his wife became residential landlords in the Portland and Freeport area.
He was a 4-H Leader, played baseball for the Spruce Tree League, and outfield for the Durham Red Sox. He was a member of the Eureka Grange in Durham for fifty years and Master of the Grange from 1950-1954. Additionally, he was a member of the Freeport Masonic Lodge for over thirty years.
As head of his own family, he was committed to the Freeport community and spent years coaching little league and supporting the high school band boosters. Carl and Alice loved being in the outdoors, spending time fishing and hunting. Camping with family and friends made the time even more enjoyable. As retirement neared, they began to spend more time at Sebago Lake and Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years Alice, who has been his devoted companion and caregiver since his numerous strokes in the past decade. He chose to meet life and death head on. As one physical therapist said, "I have never met a man more determined." Through grit and determination, he overcame many obstacles. Throughout it all, he never lost his enthusiasm for life and always had a joke and a wink at hand.
He is predeceased by his parents, his daughter Cheryl Ann, his granddaughter Beth Ann, and sister Esther Mae Routhier. Surviving siblings include his sister Nancy Carter and her husband Ralph of Auburn; his brothers Freeman and his wife Carolee of Durham; Randy Miller and his wife Angie also of Durham.
His surviving children are Carl O. Condon of Durham; Cathy Campbell and her husband Mike of Cumberland; Cliff Condon and his wife Nancy of Saco; and Cherie Gustafson and her husband Asbjorn, and their two children Oscar and Matilda of Cape Elizabeth. He also leaves behind numerous cousins, nephews and nieces.
A service and celebration of life will be held at Lindquist Funeral Home in Yarmouth on Saturday, January 18th at 1pm. Please visit www.lindquistfuneralhome.com for more information and or condolences. Carl's ashes will be interred with those of his wife's at Burr Cemetery at a later date.
Donations may be made to CHANS of Brunswick and Freeport Fire and Rescue.

"I am so saddened to hear of Carl's passing. He was a good friend and next door neighbor at camp on Sebago and will be greatly missed. My deepest..."
