FRANKFORT — Richard K. Robertson, born Sept. 27, 1933, passed away peacefully with family by his side the afternoon of Oct. 19, 2021. He was the eldest son of Kermit Robertson and Elsine Dutton Robertson.

He was predeceased by his sister, Anita Robertson; brother Daniel  Robertson; the mother of his four daughters, Junne Knight Robertson; his wife from his second marriage, Alice Robertson; and stepson Malcolm Zlotkowski.

He was an Air Force veteran, and was retired from Central Maine Power Co.

He will be deeply missed by his four daughters, Venita, Rhonda, JoAnn (and Blaine Webber) and Jane (and her husband, Gary McIntire); his grandchildren, Graham Clark (his wife, Kristina, and children Graham and Owen), Emma Clark, Chase McIntire and Junne Robertson McIntire.  Additional family he leaves behind include Roger Blake, Lincoln Blake, Suzanne and Mark Robertson and their families, Johnny Zlotkowski, Catherine Kovach and their families.

He was a builder and a mover. He built at least eight houses throughout his lifetime, and enjoyed moving rocks with his custom-made jitterbug. He loved Half Moon Pond, jazz music, and antique cars. You could find him every Friday night at the Reny’s Plaza car show and Tuesdays in Brooks with “The Liar’s Club.”

He will be remembered for his gifts of watermelon, cherries, farmer fries,  fireworks for the Fourth of July, and endless boxes of diapers for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A gathering to honor his life and share memories is planned for Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to noon at the North Searsport Christian Center on the corner of Loop Road and 756 Mt. Ephraim Road.

Arrangements are with Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, Damariscotta.  Condolences and messages for his family may be expressed by visiting StrongHancock.com.
