Timothy Sandblom, 59, of Friendship, died unexpectedly in Fort Pierce, Fla. on June 2.
Tim was born in Damariscotta on April 19, 1958, to William A. Sandblom and E. Hope Sandblom. Tim grew up in Friendship, attended local schools and graduated from Medomak Valley High School in the class of 1976. Upon graduation Tim joined the U.S. Navy, serving four years aboard the U.S.S. Edson. He was honorably discharged with the rating of Petty Officer Second Class. Tim worked at the Dragon Cement Plant for many years, before leaving due to service-related disabilities.
