MILO - Robert E. Hussey, Sr., 92, passed away peacefully September 27, 2020, at his daughter, Heather’s home in Corinna. He was born December 27, 1927, in Milo, the son of Bertram and Cora (Weymouth) Hussey. Bob’s life revolved around his family and his hard work was exceptional. His humor and life lessons will never be forgotten, especially his whistle or thumbs up.

He started working at a young age at Kroemer’s Farm in Milo, harvesting potatoes. He went on to work for the American Thread Co., Bangor and Aroostook Railroad in Derby, and he also owned his own logging trucks. He later retired in 1987 from Great Northern Paper Co. in Millinocket after almost 3 decades of service. He worked for Cianchette when Bangor International Airport was built.

Bob’s love for the ocean was where he enjoyed an annual tradition every 4th of July in Bar Harbor. He started tenting with his family at Lily Bay State Park and then onto Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. In later years, he made the trip to Bar Harbor with his 5th wheel camper. He enjoyed the pancake breakfast, parade, and fireworks. He appreciated the time with family and loved watching his grandchildren grow up. Bob enjoyed many years on Schoodic Lake and hunting and fishing at Camp 29. He was an incredible woodworker and really enjoyed spending his time woodworking.

Bob lost Helen, the love of his life on December 10, 2019. They were married on June 15, 1948 and enjoyed 71 years of marriage together. The youngest in his family, he was additionally predeceased by his parents; brothers, Irving, Clyde, Otis, Elwood, George, Arnold, and John; sisters, Addie and Irma; and a special niece, Patty.
