FALMOUTH -- Henry F. Brink, 86, of Falmouth, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, after losing his battle with cancer.
Henry was born in Falmouth on Aug. 26, 1926, the son of Harry and Ruth Brink. He attended schools in Falmouth and worked for the town as a young man. During that time, he also worked for the Canadian National Railroad. Henry served in the Army from 1952 through 1954. He retired from Central Maine Power Company in 1988, after 35 years of service.
Henry had many hobbies during his life including hunting, fishing, camping, as well as panning for gold and metal detecting. His passion was any kind of mechanical devices. Everyone brought things to him to fix. There was nothing he couldn't fix, when he put his mind to it. He also enjoyed spending time with grandchildren and going to their events.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Connie (Harroun) Brink; their two sons, William Brink of Scarborough and Russell Brink and his wife Laurie of Portland; along with five grandchildren, Robbie, Jon Henry, Samantha, Kaleigh and Kristi; one great- grandchild, Pierce; his sister Ruth Batchelder of Thomaston, and brothers, Kenneth of Saco and H. Melvin of Windham. He was predeceased by his brothers, Norman and Bobby and sister Peggy. He will be missed by all who loved him especially his cat, Punkin.
