ASHLAND - Frank O. Sprague, 78, passed away Dec. 25, 2018, at his daughter's home in West Baldwin, surrounded by his family. He was born in Caribou on March 21, 1940, son of the late Harold and Bernice Sprague.

After graduating from the Caribou High School, Frank served in the United States Navy for four years as a submarine sailor. He served on the Ashland town council, also serving as chairman for many years. He was a member of the Ashland Rotary Club.

Frank was an avid outdoorsman, especially enjoying hunting, fishing, trapping, and spending time at his camp at Round Mountain in the North Maine Woods. He worked at Hubbs Engine Company in South Portland and Great Northern Paper Company for several years before starting his own business in Ashland called Frank's Diesel Service. Frank is survived by two daughters, Dawna Sprague Cyr and her partner Mark Wasowski of West Baldwin, Jane Sprague May and her husband Kurt of Kittery; five grandchildren, Catherine, Christopher, and Cameron Cyr of West Baldwin, Jack and Cooper May of Kittery; one brother, Gerald Sprague of San Diego, Calif.; his canine companion, Brady.
