Frank London Jr., 87, died April 16, 2010, at Tall Pines in Belfast. Born in Dover-Foxcroft Oct. 21, 1922, he was a son of Frank and Emma (Angove) London and attended Foxcroft schools.

A veteran of the Army’s 10th Airborne Squadron during World War II, London was stationed in the European Theatre, serving in northern France, the Rhineland, and Ardennes from 1943 to 1946. Following his discharge from the Army, he returned to the Dover-Foxcroft area. He worked as a self-employed wood-cutter, running a team of horses and cutting lumber and pulpwood for local lumber- and sawmills.

He moved to Camden to work in the carding room at the Knox Woolen Mill in the early 1950s, where he worked until he retired. On Sept. 2, 1955, he married Ruth Nichols at the Chestnut Street Baptist Church parsonage on Belmont Avenue in Camden. In the early 1960s, the Londons moved from Blake Street in Camden to the Youngtown Road in Lincolnville.

His hobbies included fishing, woodcarving, painting with oils and enjoying the company of his cat. Frank had enjoyed spending time at his camp on Kingsbury Pond in Kingsbury Plantation, where the family discovered fossils and Native American artifacts.

Surviving is a son, John, and his fiancée, Sally Varney, of Hope; three grandchildren, Samantha London, Thomas London and Jessica London, all of Virginia Beach, Va.; two step-grandchildren, Brent Varney and his wife, Roxanne, and Aaron Varney, all of Hope; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his wife, Ruth London, who died in 2000, and six brothers and sisters.

Calling hours will be held 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, April 20, at the Long Funeral Home, 9 Mountain St., Camden. A graveside service will be held later in the Youngtown Cemetery in Lincolnville.
