Paul H. Blagdon, “Blaggy”, 58, of Wiscasset, passed away on Oct. 19 surrounded by loved ones.
He was born on June 27, 1959 in Damariscotta, the son of Holbrook and Alice Blagdon.
Paul grew up and attended school in Wiscasset. He could often be found with his lifelong friends David, Norm, Randy, and Leo. In high school, Paul met the love of his life, and wife, Bonnie. Together they made a home in Wiscasset where they raised their two sons, Corey and Josh. Paul was very proud of their family and cherished every moment spent with his sons, whether it be hunting, fishing, tubing on the lake, or going for snowmobile adventures.
Paul would always welcome any visitors to his home. You could expect to see him sitting in his swing; ready to serve whatever he had available. Even if you had only planned on staying for a minute, you would end up staying for hours of laughs, delicious food, and a good drink. Paul’s huge heart, and infectious smile, would draw in everybody he met, making everyone feel like family.
Paul worked in the plumbing and heating industry his whole life. Many of those years were spent working for Redlon & Johnson and Sondik Supply, alongside his father-in-law, John. Paul loved all of his customers and was always willing to go out of his way for them, answering calls late at night or even out on the boat. Paul truly appreciated their business and friendship.
Paul looked forward to his family’s annual vacation at Damariscotta Lake. Since he was young, this is where Paul could be found on most summer days. He treasured his pontoon boat and was always willing to take anyone on a long cruise around the lake. This summer Paul and Bonnie reached their lifelong dream, owning their own camp on Damariscotta Lake. The camp is Paul’s legacy. He often would speak of how he wished for his grandchildren to grow up on the lake he loved so much.
Paul was predeceased by his parents, Holbrook and Alice Blagdon; nephew, Dean Verney; and brother-in-law James Verney.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Bonnie Blagdon of Wiscasset; sons, Corey Blagdon and wife Jenna of Wiscasset, Joshua Blagdon and wife Audrey of Alna; sister, Linda Verney; niece, Ann Perrello of Sheepscot; father and mother-in-law, John and Gert Blagdon of Wiscasset; sister-in-law, Wendy Williams and husband Mike of Woolwich; brothers-in-law, Michael Blagdon and wife Michelle of Wiscasset, and John Blagdon III of Windsor; grandchildren, Emmy, Holbrook, Llireva and Myrick; as well as several close nieces and nephews.
