GERALD T. TREADWELL
OAKLAND––A life-long resident of Oakland, Gerald T. Treadwell, 66, died on Wednesday, July 6, 2016, from the cumulative effects of a stroke. That stroke hit on Memorial Day, 2008. Gerald held on at home for five years, before relocating to Woodlawn Rehab & Nursing, in Skowhegan––the location of his death. Gerald was born on May 5, 1950, in Waterville. He was the younger of two sons born to Trueman B. and Lois M. (Day) Treadwell.
He attended Oakland schools.
Gerald enjoyed following sports until his final years. While he cheered for the Bruins and Celtics, his other pro favorites were the New York Giants and Yankees. He was able to attend several pro baseball games. His longest faithful attendance, however, was at countless Colby College sporting events, where he could be seen at almost all home games and meets for all sports. Some coaches and players recognized that loyalty with souvenir presentations.
He also loved visiting Acadia National Park, and took many hikes on, up, and down its trails with his brother or friends.
Gerald was predeceased by his parents and is survived by his brother, Robert (“R.D.”) and cousins.
Arrangements under the direction and care of Dan & Scott’s cremation & Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Road, Skowhegan ME 0497i6.
