Walter F. Jardine, 82
ELIOT -- Walter F. Jardine, 82, of Eliot, passed away at York Hospital on Nov. 8, 2012. He had been fighting Parkinson's for about eight years when an aneurysm took him earlier than expected.
Walt was born in Greenville in 1930 to Paul and Louise Jardine. He graduated from Norwich University in Vermont in 1953 as a Mechanical Engineer. He spent two years in Germany as a Tank Platoon Leader serving in the U.S. Army with the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
Walt worked at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Engineering and Quality Assurance before retiring in 1985 after 30 years. He was married to Roberta (Williams) in 1958 and they raised two sons, Paul and Peter.
He loved to ski and spent as much time as he could at his camp up at Sugarloaf. After retirement, Walt worked at the health club and drove shuttle bus at Sugarloaf. Besides skiing, he enjoyed camping, biking, woodworking, hiking, hunting, fishing and a little golf.
Walter is survived by his wife Roberta of 54 years; his sons Paul and Peter and his wife Ann Marie; a daughter-in-law, Amy Jardine; sisters, Paula Bartlett and her husband David and Joan Dickinson; uncle Roy Smith, aunts, Irma Johnson, Dawn Sanders, and Thelma McDonald; grandchildren, Tim and his wife Lindsay Jardine, Dan and his wife Trish Jardine and their children, Makayla and Ava, Rebekah Jardine, and Ashley, Christie and Allison Jardine; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A memorial service will be held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ on State Road in Eliot on Friday, Nov. 23, at 2 p.m. Arrangements are entrusted to the J.S. Pelkey Funeral Home of Kittery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Walter's memory to:
