Larry Eugene Maddocks
Larry Eugene Maddocks, 76, of Kittery, died on Dec. 28, 2013 at his home surrounded by loved ones. Born in Brooks, Maine, on March 9, 1937, he was a son of Everett E. and Eleanor Mae (Carleton) Maddocks. Larry attended local schools in Searsport and graduated from Searsport High school in 1955.
Larry and his loving wife of 56 years Jean L.

He then began a career for decades in the home heating field, working first for Boulters Heating and Navy Yard Oil in Kittery, then for more than 26 years with Davis Oil Service in Eliot, Maine.
He and Jean often enjoyed their restored red 1954 Ford truck, attending many car shows with the Maine Obsolete Auto League (MOAL) and the Twin State Cruisers, as well as local Christmas parades. They were parishioners of the South Eliot Advent Christian Church.
