ORONO - Charles Jarius Lincoln passed away Sunday, April 6, 2008, surrounded by loving family members, at a Bangor hospital. Charles was born Oct. 13, 1926, in Atkinson, the first of 13 children born to Lula (Hichborn) and Leslie P. Lincoln. Charlie spent most of his childhood in LaGrange, a member of a large and loving farm family. He graduated from LaGrange High School and served his country in the Army during the occupation of Japan at the conclusion of World War II. Charlie married June Taylor, Aug. 23, 1955, and they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 2007. Charlie and June loved spending vacations on the coast and shared many memories of trips to Milbridge, where they stayed in a cottage on the water's edge. Charlie and June loved stock car races and he worked as a mechanic for a friend who raced at Exeter and Unity racetracks. Brothers and sisters remember Charlie and June's love of Ford T-birds and recall the time Poochie, their dog, tore the upholstery in one of these T-birds after being left alone in the car, obviously a little too long. Although Charlie worked at London's Garage, Milo, as an auto body repairman, for many years, he and June moved to Island Avenue, Orono, after he got a job at GE, Bangor, where he spent more than 20 years, retiring as a supervisor. He is still missed by many of his former co-workers. Charlie always loved to share a joke and had a kind, gentle manner and will be missed by siblings and their spouses, Isabelle Weston of Winslow, Lois and Paul Strout of Bangor, Priscilla McPheters of Brunswick, Alice Dolley of Old Town, Carolyn and Robert Reed of Ellsworth, "Junior" Leslie P. Jr. and Susan of LaGrange, Evelyn and Ralph Robbins Jr. of Hampden, Gerald and Faith Lincoln of Dixmont, Doris Whitaker of Windsor and David and Wanda Lincoln of Old Town. Charlie was predeceased by his loving wife, June; sisters, Irma Ellis and Blanche Barnes; as well as brothers-in-law, Dana Ellis, Harold Barnes, Hubert Weston, Manley Dolley and Jerry Whitaker. His extended family included dozens of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Charlie's family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to staff at Orono Commons and St. Joseph Hospital for making his final months as comfortable as possible. Visiting hours will be held 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town. A memorial service will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, April 10, at Birmingham Funeral Home with the Rev. Maria Guereca officiating. Services entrusted to the care of Birmingham Funeral Home.
