OBITUARIES for Thursday, May 13, 2021


NAPLES, Fla. – Jibryne “Gubby” Karter, 75, passed away on Sunday, April 11, 2021, in Naples, Florida. He was born in Waterville on June 17, 194,5 to Jibryne “Gubby” and Jeanette Karter.

He was educated in local schools and attended the University of New Hampshire where he completed a degree in Hospitality Management. While at the university, through a bit of ingenuity, he established his own fraternity, Alpha Dubba Gubba, which he personally founded and elected himself president.

Upon graduation Gubby served his country as an officer in the US Army and went to Korea. Completing his term of service and ready for adventure, without any financial resources he traveled to Vermont and convinced his brother-in-law to co-sign a note with him so he could go to Europe for two months where he made many lifelong friends. He then returned to his hometown where he and his brother, Fred, purchased the Bob-In Bar and Grill, on Temple St., in Waterville. They soon took over ownership of the Chez Paree, also in Waterville, another local night spot. In time Gubby became solely affiliated with the Bob-In which he owned and ran until his move to Florida five years ago. For many years he was also the managing partner at the Budget Host Motel.

Interestingly Gubby passed away on the Sunday of the Masters. This is the man who in years past climbed the fence to get into the Masters with his best friend Carl Beck.

One of his passions was the Waterville Boys and Girls Club. He served on the board of directors and was instrumental in the relocation and building of the then new facility.

As one of ten children in a large out-going family, Gubby was gregarious by nature. He loved and enjoyed interacting with people from all walks of life. He was often late for family dinners because he had to take time to converse with a friend or with someone he just met while strolling the aisles of a grocery store. It could be said his friends ran the gamut from bank presidents to bank robbers.

Gubby loved spending time with his granddaughter Jenna at the lake in the summer. He often said that his crowning achievement in life was when he organized a weekend reunion of the extended Karter family, which was attended by several hundred people. He was the consummate host. People were drawn to this larger than life personality. His love of life knew no bounds and he lived it to the fullest.

He was predeceased by his son Jibryne Karter III.

He is survived by granddaughter Jenna Karter his son Michael Gabriel (Kathleen); grandsons Michael and Christian; and his nine siblings, Carol Cota (Hugh), Jim Karter (Mona), Mary Elliott (John), Elissa Karter, Fred Karter (Nancy), Joe Karter (Debra), Jan Bourque (David), Karl Karter (Roxanne), Jeff Karter (Tim), his ex-wife Brenda Ross Karter; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins.

A celebration of his life will be held by his family at a later date.

OAKLAND – Howard R. Jones, 75, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at home. Howard was born in Waterville on January 4, 1946, to Robert B. and Doris (Willette) Jones, who predeceased him, along with his two older brothers, Deane and Bruce.

He was the husband of Linda (Bulmer) Jones with whom he shared 53 years of marriage.

Howie was a resident of Oakland for many years and previously resided and grew up in Waterville. He was a graduate of Waterville High School, class of 1965, and he attended Maine Maritime Academy, in Castine. Howard started his long career as a building materials sales rep at Superior Column, Oakland. After a long successful career in the industry, he retired from Huttig Building Materials in 2015. In 2015, he received the RLDAM Lifetime Achievement Award. He continued to do consultant work with Reeb, Protecto Wrap, and Prime Source until his death.

Howie loved being outside working around his house, down at the lake, or taking walks with his wife and dogs. He enjoyed spending time with his friends and family, especially if they were fishing or hunting. Howie was fortunate to fish all over the continent, including Montana, Alaska, and Cabo San Lucas. He also enjoyed hunting all over the globe in places like North Carolina, Colorado, Spain, England, and South America. One of his most memorable hunting excursions was a month-long safari in Tanzania, Africa.

Howie would say though that nothing could beat his times spent hunting in his home state of Maine, especially with his grandson. They would often go deer hunting after school and were also able to go on a couple bison hunts and one moose hunt together.

Howie also took pleasure in playing softball, golf, hockey, skiing and dirt bike racing.

In addition to his wife Linda, Howie is survived by his daughter Carolyn Bridges and her husband Erik, of Oakland, and their son, Rhys; his sister-in-law, Patricia Jones, of Scarborough; many nieces and nephews; and three special cousins Gary and his wife Terry, of Sherborn, Massachusetts, Barbara Hauter, of California, and John Hauter, of New York.

NEW YORK CITY – Kenneth Jacobson, 91, songwriter and activist, passed away peacefully on March 22, 2021, two days after his birthday. The son of Gertrude and Henry Jacob­son, he was born and raised in Waterville.

As a child, he gravitated toward music naturally, picking out tunes on the piano that he heard on the radio, writing songs and skits that he and a younger sister performed in the family living room, with or without an audience. His talent developed over the years, and while still in high school, he played with Waterville’s Al Corey’s Big Band. During his first year at Colby College, in Waterville, he attended the performance of a musical play and realized that this was what he wanted to do. During his time at Colby, he wrote the music for two such shows, Lucky to Be Me (1947) and Bottoms Up (1949). They were both performed at Colby and Bottoms Up went on tour.

Kenny also served as president of Powder and Wig, Colby’s student run theatre club. Upon graduation, he was awarded the Condon Medal “established in 1920…to honor the graduating senior who exhibited the finest qualities of citizenship and made the most significant contribution to the development of college life at Colby.” Years later, a Kenneth Jacobson Music Room was established at Colby.

After a short stint in the Army where he was stationed in Orleans, France, and was responsible for the entertainment of the soldiers, he moved to New York City. Almost immediately, he met with success when his first recording, Every Day performed by Joni James, was released in 1954. It was his first gold record.

In the years that followed, Kenny’s songs were recorded by Peggy Lee, 101 Strings, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Dinah Washington, Ronnie Self, The Four Lads, Jimmy Brown, Theresa Brewer, Ella Fitzgerald, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Kidd and The Pirates, The McGuire Sisters, The Andrew Sisters, Lou Christie, Jackie Wilson, Shelley Fabares, Count Basie, Duane Eddy, Jim Reeves, Nat King Cole, Link Wray, Steve and Eydie Lawrence, The Partridge Family, and many others. He loved working with Ella Fitzgerald in particular, who he called his best and kindest collaborator.

A number of his songs ranked high on the Billboard charts, which are weekly listings showing the popularity of songs. In 1965, Kenny was the composer of Hot September the musical version of Picnic. He also wrote the music for the musical comedy Show Me Where the Good Times Are based on Moliere’s The Imaginary Invalid. It was performed in 1970.

Kenny was an active member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers). For a period of time, he taught musical theatre classes for adults at The New School, in New York City. He was unstinting with his knowledge, warmth and generosity, and in his later years mentored many young songwriters. One of them remembered a bit of Kenny’s advice: “Don’t worry if it’s bad. We all write bad. Just write it until it’s good.” Equally as important to Kenny as his music was his involvement in the AIDS activist organization ACT UP during the late 1980s and 1990s. He was lauded as “a wonderful guy and a steady hand” of ACT Up’s Treatment and Data Committee. Kenny lived a rich, modest and creative life, full of music, love and beauty.

He was very close to his three sisters – was predeceased by his sister, Estelle, and is survived by his sisters, Phyllis and Ruthie (spouse, Herb), nephews and nieces.

Both he and his wife worked countless hours to grow this business into the successful company it has become today. After his son Michael was old enough to join in the business operations, Carroll and Mike became a partnership changing the name of the business to Carroll and Son Body Shop. He enjoyed working alongside his wife Phyllis and son Michael.

When Carroll was not in the shop working countless hours on vehicles or towing wrecked cars, he was out at his camp on Belgrade Lakes fishing and enjoying the outdoors. He could be seen out on his deck, by the water, enjoying a cigar on a nice sunny day. In his earlier years, he enjoyed going on trips with his wife to Aruba, Las Vegas, and Florida.

FAIRFIELD – Richard “Dick” B. Clark, 79, passed away at MaineGeneral Medical Center, on Saturday, May 1, 2021. Dick was born in Summerfield, New Brun­swick, Canada, on December 3, 1941, the son of the late George and Hilda Clark.

The family relocated to Maine in 1946. He graduated from Lawrence High School, in Fairfield, graduated from Thomas College, in Waterville, and served his country in the Armed Forces.

While on leave from the U.S. Army in 1963, he kidnapped his wife Blanche and returned to Europe to finish his tour while Blanche made hand-whipped spam and eggs in the Blue VW Beatle.

After exiting the U.S., Army, Dick entered the work force as a sales representative for Beechnut Baby Foods until he found his calling within the manufacturing industry at Keyes Fibre/Chinet/Huhtamaki, in Waterville, where he served 35 years before retiring in 2007 as a member of Huhtamaki’s management team, overseeing multiple production departments.

Over the years, Dick volunteered to the community coaching youth sports, helping the football and hockey boosters, as well as being a proud member of the PAL board. Fall is football in Dogtown. So, Friday nights, top row of the bleachers, directly in front of the tower, 50 yard line, he and Ronnie King would watch the “Dogs” battle.

In his spare time, he could be found swinging his clubs with close friends Larry Murphy, Gary Ackendorf, and Dale Buzzell (who also customized his clubs) at the Waterville Country Club. Dick’s best round was a 66, and managed a hole in one along his journey. In 1996 and 1997, Dick represented Huhtamaki at the McDonald’s LPGA Pro-Am.

Special thanks from all the grandkids for the countless rides to and from practices, sporting events, and other “random” calls and spontaneous credit card purchases. Let us not forget the suffering of all the dance recitals he painfully sat through.

He enjoyed his “do nothing week” alongside wife Blanche at their Samoset Condo. They would sit and relax on the porch for hours, cocktail in hand, laughing, savoring each other’s companionship absorbing beautiful ocean views. Daily walks on the breakwater; guaranteed, as they enjoyed the peacefulness of the ocean, sharing their continued love for one another. Forever, they will dance the night away on God’s stage.

Richard was predeceased by parents George and Hilda Clark.

He is survived by son, Eric Clark; and twin grandsons Dustin and Dylan Brown, of Fairfield; daughter Michelle Peterson and husband Clinton, of Fairfield; and grandchildren Karlie Clark and fiancé Richard Clarke, of Augusta, Tragen Clark, of Sidney, Braylee Peterson, of Sidney, Alexandrea Peterson, of Fairfield and Xavier Peterson, of Fairfield; his sister Linda Clark and partner Mike Holt, of Fairfield.

FAIRFIELD – Floyd A. Eller, 73, passed away suddenly on Saturday evening, May 1, at home. He was born Nov. 7, 1947 in New Sharon the only child to Della (Lane) Eller and Joseph Eller.

He was the husband to Dorothy A. Campbell, formerly of Acton, Massachusetts, whom he married on New Year’s Eve 2012, and together they retired to their beautiful farm on the Ridge Road, in Fairfield.

Floyd graduated in the last graduating class from New Sharon High School, in 1966. During his high school years he worked for William “Ross” McCormick at McCormick’s Store, in New Sharon. After high school he worked construction for several years. He was especially proud of the brick work at the Learning Center at University of Maine at Farmington. He went onto complete a course at the Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which allowed him to become the sales and marketing representative for the NFO (National Farmers Organization) as the North East Regional Sales and Marketing representative.

Following that he remained a livestock dealer and dairy farmer for 24 years. He spent most of his life on the Lane Road, in New Sharon, farming and raising his family with his first wife Rose Mary (Harris) Eller. He returned to Maine in 2012 to raise beef cattle on his and Dorothy’s Ridge Road farm. Most recently he formed his LLC, Ridge Road Remodeling and has been buying and remodeling houses with the assistance of his realtor friend, Judy Williams, of Plourde Realty, in Waterville.

Floyd is also survived by his three daughters, Barbara Eller and her boyfriend Robert Searles II, of Waterville, Brenda (Eller) Avery and her husband Alan Jesse Avery, of Woodstock, New Hampshire, and Beverly (Eller) Stevens and her boyfriend Adam Hamm, of Smithfield; three grandchildren, Carter Stevens and his fiancée Kaitlin Marraché, of Jacksonville, Florida, Logan Stevens and his girlfriend Taylor Davidson, of Sidney, and Emma Avery, of Woodstock, New Hampshire.

As someone who had survived tough times and pulled himself up by his bootstraps on several occasions, Floyd was always willing to help a friend in need by any means necessary. He lived by the theory that strangers were merely friends that he had not yet met and his biggest fault was that he wore his heart of gold on his sleeve.

A sunset service was held on May 10, at their farm.

SIDNEY – Richard Arthur Boudreau, 89, died Monday, May 3, 2021. Richard was born in Waterville on May 25, 1931, to Alphonse Boudreau and Grace (Pooler) Boudreau.

After graduating from Waterville High School in 1949, he served four years in the United States Air Force, attaining the rank of staff sergeant. During the Korean War, he was stationed in Japan. He was very proud of serving his country.

With help from the GI Bill, Richard earned a bachelor of liberal arts degree from the University of New England, in Biddeford, in 1959. He met many friends there with whom he always remained in touch.

After college, he met the love of his life, Madeline (Rossignol) Boudreau, when he returned to his hometown of Waterville to work at the Depositors Trust Bank, on Main St. They shared a blessed life together, enjoying 52 years of marriage that saw many classical music concerts, trips to the Maine Coast for lobster dinners, lively picnics, and fall foliage trips throughout Maine.

Because of his love of philosophy, books, and the desire to start a new career, Richard decided to go back to college in 1968. After earning a master’s degree in library science from the University of Maine at Orono, he became the librarian at Thomas College, in Waterville. During 27 years of service, he befriended students who, long after graduating, often visited him and Madeline at their home.

Retirement gave Richard more time to devote to the community and those in need. For 15 years, he and Madeline delivered Meals on Wheels for the Muskie Center, in Waterville. They loved helping others; this was a direct link to their strong Catholic faith and devotion. For 64 years (67 years of Franciscan study), Richard was a member of the Saint John the Baptist Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order and served as president, secretary, treasurer, and several other roles for the local fraternity council.

The arts held a special place in Richard’s life and was something he passed on to his children. Maybe it is no surprise for a librarian, but Richard loved books, especially the classics and Charles Dickens. An appreciation for classical music led to an extensive record collection and his children’s memories of their home filled with the sounds of Saturday Afternoon Metropolitan Opera. Richard also enjoyed model railroading and spent years building his own.

Richard especially loved the Boston Red Sox. Like many in his generation, he waited his whole life for them to finally win the World Series. The joy of that win in 2004 was something he was able to witness three more times. He shared his love of baseball with his children. He coached them and took them to see the Maine Guides, and eventually the Red Sox at Fenway Park, the church of baseball. His children have fond memories of listening to the Sox games under the large willow tree in their backyard, as Richard smoked his cigars, playing catch, and hitting thousands of pop flies to them.

He was a loving, sweet, giving, compassionate and caring father and grandfather, as well as a mentor. He would often say, “There is only one decision: make the right one. Don’t be afraid of the decisions you make; do what you think is right.”

He was predeceased by his wife, Madeline, his daughter, Margaret Mary, grandchildren Faye and Jibryne, his younger brother, Ronald Boudreau, and his older sister, Theresa (Boudreau) Guerrette.

He is survived by his children Rosemary, Jane, and Mark; five grandchildren, Dustin, Kayla, Aida,; four great-grandchildren: Jenna, Eliot, Oliver, and Mattie Lynn; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Ever committed to public service and the greater good, Richard donated his body to science to the University of New England’s medical school.

A memorial mass will be held at a time to be determined.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Secular Franciscans, attention Dan Spofford, treasurer, SFO, 194 Garland Rd., Winslow, ME 04901.
