Fenlason, Gerald Oscar "Jerry"*  
1943-2014 ANSON - Gerald "Jerry" Oscar Fenlason, 71, formerly of Jackman, Maine, passed away Wednesday, November 19, 2014, after a period of declining health and a recent stroke. Jerry was born in Anson, Maine, on August 12, 1943. He was predeceased by his parents, Aletha Pearl Nye Fenlason Spencer and Oscar Ellery Fenlason. A 1961 graduate of Anson Academy in North Anson, he excelled in basketball and baseball. Jerry was also a proud member of the Maine National Guard. Early in his career, Jerry worked in the North Woods of Maine, hauling wood and gravel, and he was an all-around mechanic. Jerry worked hauling gravel for the Logan Airport expansion project. He worked in many capacities within his jobs, but many stories touted Jerry's ability to fix anything. When someone was in a tough spot with any piece of equipment, Jerry could always get them out and get it repaired, sometimes better than it had been before. Socializing with friends, hunting and fly fishing were a few of Jerry's hobbies. Working in the vicinity of ponds, brooks and streams when he worked in the woods gave Jerry ample time to enjoy many evenings casting his fishing line. As well as fixing trucks, Jerry was a skilled driver. He was a first prize recipient for many years at the Moscow Truck Rodeo. Jerry is survived by his children, Lynda Leila West, Col. Timothy Jerry Fenlason, Steven Brian Fenlason and Patricia Belle Horgan; his favorite daughter-in-law, Pamela Jean Fenlason; grandchildren Ryan David Dawes, Lacey Mae Fenlason, Dalton Robert Fenlason, Samuel Joseph West, Micah James Horgan and Bryson Patrick Horgan; and siblings Janice Ricker and Ronnie Fenlason. There will be no service at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Anson Academy Alumni, in care of Carrabec High School, 160 N. Main Street, North Anson, ME 04401. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Dan & Scott's Cremation & Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Road, Skowhegan, ME 04976.

Jackson, Adam*  
2014 Adam Jackson of Oakland, Maine, and Jupiter, Florida, left his fun filled journey on earth for eternal life on November 15, 2014. His spirit will be carried on by his mom, dad, brothers, step- parents, grandparents and his extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life, all who have been very blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Adam during his life and through his battle with melanoma. His positive fun filled attitude throughout life motivated others and put a smile on the faces of others each and every day. More often than not, Adam would put the needs of others before his own. He could often be heard saying "it is what it is"! Adam lived his 37-years-long life big and often referred to his life as a "good" ride. He had a passion for the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, NASCAR, beautiful girls, a party, his colleagues and his family and friends! Adam was a true foodie, never passing up a perfectly cooked slice of prime rib. He loved to cook and entertain during sporting events and other times. He also enjoyed great times with family and friends boating, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, bar hopping and eating out at fantastic restaurants. Adam loved his annual trips to Moosehead Lake with his dad, brothers and friends. At his request, Adam's ashes will be scattered at the base of Kineo during a winter ice fishing gathering. Adam is survived by his mom, Dianne Dubord, and his stepfather, Dan "Dano," of China, Maine; his dad, Bruce Jackson, and stepmother Dianne, of Oakland, Maine; his brother, Todd Jackson and daughter Emily, of Smithfield; his brother, Ben Jackson, his wife, Val, daughter Cassie and son Dalton, of Oakland; his grandparents, Georgette and Joe Moore, of Waterville; and his stepsister, Krystal Tavares and sons Aiden and Keagan, of Waterville, Maine. Adams was also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and best friends from both Maine and Florida. Adam will be reunited with his grandparents Priscilla and George Jackson, his grandfather William Lewis and his cousins Kevin Brann, Bryan Corson and Travis Lewis. The family would like to thank the Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Florida, and the Palm Beach County Hospice for its excellent care and treatment. Adam's brother Ben provided unselfish care, compassion, and support during Adam's final journey and the visit from his friends from Oakland and his Jupiter friends during his last days made his eyes light up at each and every visit. Remember my friends "life is a beautiful journey, live large and it is what it is"! A celebration of Adam's life will take place from 2 to 4 on Sunday, November 30, 2014 at Silver Street Tavern, Waterville, Maine. Donations in Adam's memory may be made to Messalonskee High School "Sports," 131 Messalonskee High Drive, Oakland, ME 04963.
