Howard Merritt Verrill, 83
NEW GLOUCESTER - Howard Merritt Verrill, 83, of New Gloucester, passed away in the comfort of his home, on Feb. 23, 2018.
He was born in New Gloucester, on March 4, 1934, to parents Merritt and Angie Verrill. He graduated from New Gloucester High School in 1951.
His wife of 59 years, Barbara Verrill, died in January 2013.
Howard is survived by his sister, Betty Robidoux; and his children: Angie Maschino (George), David Verrill (Susan), Nancy Verrill, Donald Verrill (Oksana), Jane Stone (Chuck), Ann Ryan (Robert), Mary Verrill, Peter Verrill (Beth), and Catherine Verrill (Beth Piper); 24 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; several in-laws he welcomed into the family; and his canine companion, Sophie. He was predeceased by his brother, Willis Verrill.
He served in the United States Army Reserves. He was a truck driver and a mechanic most of his working career. He also spent time volunteering with the New Gloucester Fire Department.
Howard's interests were camping, Tuesday night suppers, family gatherings, hearing who we thought was his favorite, attending his children and grandchildren's sporting events, and being with all the family dogs. He also enjoyed the Boston Red Sox, NASCAR, hunting, and fishing.
