H. Jack McFadden
Mr. H. Jack McFadden, 66, of Liberty, Maine passed from this life on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013. He was born Feb. 23, 1947 in Philadelphia, Pa. to Anne and Harry McFadden. Jack leaves behind his wife and best friend, Daryl V. Schwartz McFadden; his beloved children, Carrie McFadden and partner Fred Foy, Colleen Jewett and husband Darrell, Ian McFadden and wife Anita, Heather McFadden and Jesse McFadden, Lisa Ward and husband Steve.
Jack dearly loved being “Dad-Dad” to his grandchildren, Amanda and husband Dan Cushman, Stasia McFadden, Gavin Jewett, Meli McFadden, Jeff McFadden and Samantha McFadden; and great-grandson, Kale Cushman, Dalton and Cayleigh Ward.
Jack was a teaching parent for Father Flanagan’s Boys Town and opened his home and heart to many children over the years. He loved to drive the back roads in nature, telling jokes, making others laugh with his irreverent sense of humor and sharing everything he had with others. He gave his never-ending support and advice to many without expecting anything in return. He loved playing Santa and making sure the spirit of giving was a year-round endeavor. He loved his “Chicken Bone”, his Chinese-crested canine companion who misses him terribly.
In honor of Jack's big heart and open arms we ask in lieu of flowers that donations be given to Toys for Tots at http://toysfortots.org. A celebration of life will be held Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Liberty Town Office from 2 – 3 p.m. Please bring a memory, story or antidote to share and celebrate Jack's life. We would ask that Jack be remembered with bright colors and smiles.
