Kenneth Herbert Normand, 58 NORTH YARMOUTH -- Kenneth Herbert Normand, 58, passed away on Friday, Sept. 12, 2014, at Maine Medical Center. He endured 48 years with diabetes and 22 years with sarcoidosis lung disease. He was surrounded by those who meant the utmost in his heart - his wife, their three children, spouses, and a few close extended family members. Ken was born in Portland on Oct. 7, 1955, the first of four children of Arlene Hamilton. He lived with and was raised by his grandparents in North Yarmouth. He attended school in North Yarmouth and Cumberland. In June 1982 he had the good fortune to marry Diane Louise Freeman. Together they built a lifetime of love and memories raising their family which was Ken's greatest joy and gave him his biggest smile. Ken worked building lobster traps for 15 years at Anderson & Sons. He later became a lobsterman, a landscaper and worked for the Yarmouth School Department. He worked in his later years at Val Halla as a groundskeeper rebuilding sand bunkers and adding rock walls leaving his signature touch throughout the golf course. Ken greatly enjoyed the outdoors with his family through hunting, fishing, camping, and Sunday hiking the fields, sandpits and railroad tracks.

Floyd Emery Cobb Renowned Traditional Sporting Camp Operator LEE -- Floyd Emery Cobb passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 14, 2014, with those he loved by his side. Floyd talked very often of how blessed he had been his entire life of 94 years. He spoke of many blessings, but his home, his friends, and his family were the cherished ones. Floyd was born at the True Farm located in the township of #3 on May 6, 1920, to Vinal and Etna Jones Cobb. He grew up at the Thurlow Place, attended schools in Lee, and graduated from Lee Academy in 1937. It was in Lee that Floyd met and married Maudie Scribner. After serving in the U.S. Navy, he returned home where he farmed a little, lumbered for a few years, then became a bush pilot in the early 50s. Flying was his passion and often said he was more comfortable flying a float plane than driving on the ground. He was still flying into his 90s. Floyd was also one of the original six Lee men to build and operate Mt. Jefferson Ski Area. Wherever Floyd was, his thoughts easily drifted westward to his other home, Pierce Pond. It was there Floyd and Maudie created a beautiful place from meager beginnings. Together they etched a business and lifestyle in the Maine woods that still serves their family well three generations later. Cobb's Pierce Pond Camps, one of the few remaining traditional sporting camps in Maine, has touched the lives of many in ways only nature can provide. Floyd loved the outdoors, an avid fisherman and deer hunter. He was blessed to share his passions with others. Floyd spent over 20 winters in Zephyrhills, Fla., where he developed a passion for golf and made many wonderful friends. He enjoyed his Florida home, but his heart was always in Lee. This was home. It was where he wanted to be. It was where he always came back to. Over the course of his life, Floyd had many life-long friends. Like him, they were born, grew up, left, and returned to their home town. These friends were loved and even though most of them Floyd Emery Cobb have passed on, they were in his thoughts and conversations daily. He leaves his good friends Avis Noyes, Bernard Staples and Lester Delano to keep the memories alive. These friendships spanned nearly 90 years. Floyd's single most important reason for his being was his family. He was a loving and dedicated son, brother, husband, dad, grandfather (Pup), and great- grandfather. To his family, however, he was forever the anchor, the teacher, their friend. Floyd was predeceased by Maudie Scribner Cobb, his wife of 67 years; Merrill Cobb, brother; Joan, Phyllis and Charlene Scribner, sisters-in-law, Dick Scribner, brother-in-law; and Stephen Cobb, nephew. Floyd is survived by his children, Gary and wife Betty of North New Portland, Judy Mallett and fiancee Jack Bailey of North New Portland, and Jeannie Merchant and husband John of Mount Desert Island; his grandchildren, Jennifer Cobb Hering, Andy Cobb, Katherine Mallett, Kristen Mallett Cowan, Timothy Justin Merchant and Hayley Merchant; and his great-grandchildren, Lyle and Jamie Hering, Kaitlyn, Nickolas and Grace Cowan, and Ava Merchant. He is also survived by several cousins, nieces and nephews. Floyd is also survived by very special brothers-in- law, Claude and Roland Scribner, sister-in-law Wilma Coffin Cobb; and loving companion Betty Fickett Barter Welsh. The family extends sincere thanks to Dr. Chris Mannari and his staff for their exceptional care and concern, and Hospice for their comforting presence. Services will be announced later in October. Those who wish may sign an online register and leave written condolences at www.clayfuneralhome.com . In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to: The Maine Wilderness Watershed Trust, an organization that will forever protect the watershed surrounding his precious Pierce Pond P.O. Box 5660 Augusta, Maine 04332 or to any charity of your choice.

Albert McLoon Rogers ROCKLAND -- Albert McLoon Rogers passed from this life on Sept. 10, 2014. Born in Rockland on May 17, 1929, he was known by his family nickname of 'Mac.' Mac moved to Fort Fairfield as a young boy in 1931 where his father set up practice. Many summers were spent in the Rockland area at the Sunset cottage on Pleasant Beach. It was the summer of 1936 that Mac contracted polio which kept him in bed at his grandmother's house for two months. He slowly recovered and was able to continue second grade. He grew up in Fort Fairfield until the tragic passing of his father from a brain tumor in 1943. After a year, the family returned to Rockland in 1944. Mac worked one summer loberstering on Hewitt's Island. He graduated from Rockland High in 1947 and spent the following summer working as a messboy on the schooner Enterprise out of Camden. Acceptance to Bowdoin College came late in August while Mac contemplated joining the Navy. He majored in biology in preparation for medical school. Mac was a member of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity where he made may life-long friends. His college summer jobs included raking blueberries, working in a sardine factory and for General Seafoods, and during the summer of 1951 as a cabin boy on a schooner out of Camden. Mac went to McGill University in Montreal for his medical schooling. He joined the Navy Reserve during the first year of medical school with the intent to apply for active duty at the end of his internship. It was during the summer of 1952 that Mac and Stephany ('Stevie') Lindquist began courting following a chance meeting when her father invited Mac and a friend to the Lindquist house following Stevie's sister's wedding. They dated during the summer but didn't see each other much during the school year with Mac in Montreal and Stevie in Boston at Wheelock College. They were engaged in the fall of 1953 and were married on June 26, 1954, at the Congregational church in Rockland. They honeymooned one night at his grandfather's pound house at Bunker's Harbor and then on to a cabin at Fundy National Park in New Brunswick for three days. That summer he worked assisting surgeons at Knox Hospital in the mornings and pumped gas in the afternoon. In the fall Mac returned to McGill and Stevie went to Boston. They would get together about every six weeks during that year. It was during that fall that Mac's mother was diagnosed with cancer that would take her life five years later. After each graduated in 1955, they moved to Portland where Stevie taught third grade and Mac began an internship at Maine General Hospital. Following a year of internship, he began residency in orthopedic surgery at the Chelsea Naval Hospital in Massachusetts. The first child, Jeff, was born in October, 1956. Scott, the second child, was born in December of 1957. Mac's residency took him to Indianapolis, Ind., where the third child, Marcia, was born in April, 1960. The Navy's next assignment was to Subic Bay, Philippines from 1961-1963. It was there that Mac built a 26-foot sailboat he called 'Mabuhi', which means Victory in the Philippine Tagalog language. The sailboat was shipped to his next assignment when he returned to the Chelsea Naval Hospital. Mac's busy schedule did not allow much time for sailing and he parted with the boat soon Albert McLoon Rogers after. The Chelsea assignment ended in 1965 and Mac decided to resign his commission and return to Maine to begin private practice in Portland. A new home was built in Cape Elizabeth and the family grew with the addition of Cynthia in February, 1967. The larger family prompted a move to Falmouth in another new house in 1969. Mac became ill in April, 1972 which left him partially paralyzed with a diagnosis of Guillain-Barre syndrome. There was a partial recovery after two years that allowed him to walk with the aid of braces. He attempted to rejoin his practice but soon realized the illness was too great an obstacle. The slowness of the recovery was a strain that led to a massive ulcer in the spring of 1975 which ultimately required a transfusion of more than 29 units of blood and the removal of 80% of the stomach. He enlisted the help of friends and associates to start in the field of rehab medicine. This led to a move to Warm Springs, Ga., where life was very different from Maine. It proved to be an important step and Mac then took a position at Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford, Conn., in 1977. The family moved to Cheshire and built a house not far from the hospital. Mac worked at Gaylord for five years before taking a position as Chief of Rehabilitation at Waterbury Hospital. He worked there until the end of June, 1985 and retired when the last child, Cindy, graduated high school. Mac and Stevie moved to Bremen where they undertook yet another house construction on McCurdy Pond. This home became the focal point for family reunions as the number of grandchildren grew. Mac established a basement workshop where wooden wonders were constructed and distributed to friends and family. Mac and Stevie traveled extensively in early retirement, driving a motorhome to Alaska (twice), cruised through the Panama Canal, along the Norwegian coast, and in the Netherlands. Mac's volunteer work at the Owls Head Transportation Museum was the anchor to much of his life in Bremen. He was president of the Pemaquid Water Association and help lead it toward the active organization is today. Mac was also treasurer of the Bremen Library and oversaw fundraising necessary for the library addition. Combined with the friends Stevie made with her volunteerism, they were busy and active in the community. Mac is survived by Stevie, his wife of 60 years; his four children and spouses; and seven grandchildren. Jeff and his wife Linda Hamlin live in Salt Lake City area and their son Alden lives in Breckenridge, Colo. Scott lives in Gorham, and his daughter Karah lives in the Portland area. Marcia and her husband Mike Stanford live in Branchburg, N.J., with their children Riley and Ryan. Cindy and her husband Stephen Colton live in the Nashville suburb of Brentwood, Tenn., with their children MacKenzie, Ally, and Parker. Dr. Rogers family will be remembering his life privately.
