Frederick R. Hart III, 80, of Wiscasset, passed away peacefully on the morning of Feb. 11 near his home in Maine.
Fred was born on July 1, 1937, in Concord, Mass. to Fred and Lois Hart. He briefly attended the University of Miami and later graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Mass. Fred proudly served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Fred retired with over 30 years from United Airlines after working at the Oakland, San Francisco and Portland airports. Fred was loved and cherished by all of his United Airlines co-workers.
Fred was fond of model trains, so after retirement he volunteered and worked at the Boothbay Railway Village in Boothbay. He loved to do crossword puzzles in his favorite chair overlooking the Sheepscot River, and he was an avid fan of both the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox.
He is survived by daughters, Michaela M. Hart of Pleasanton, Cal., Tiffany L. Meyer (Richard) of Albuquerque, N.M., Seneschel Sims (Matt) of Hayward, Cal., and Cashel Fanslau (Brian) of Alna; grandchildren, Kyle, Nikyra, Angela, Shane, Allen, Ariana, Freya, Matthias, Isaac and Isabel; partner, Wilma Turcotte of Wiscasset; brothers, David Hart (Roberta) of Dresden, and Robert Eisenhauer (Andrea) of Land O’Lakes, Fla.; lifelong friend, Patricia Hart of Hayward, Cal.; and many other extended family members and friends.
Services will be private, with a graveside gathering later this year.
The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to the Boothbay Railway Village, 586 Wiscasset Rd., Boothbay, ME 04537; or Muscular Dystrophy Association, 222 S. Riverside Plaza, Suite 1500, Chicago, IL 60606.
