Harold R. Jackman
RUMFORD -- Harold R. Jackman, 75, of East Livermore, died on May 21, 2012 at the Rumford Hospital.
He was born Nov. 10, 1936 in Livermore Falls, a son of Cecil and Edna (Bamford) Jackman. He attended schools in Chesterville and Fayette.
On Nov. 1, 1958, in Chesterville, he married Janice E. Jordan of Dixfield.
He was employed at Livermore Shoe, the Wilton Tannery, and also worked in the woods and owned his own pulp truck. He later worked for Cianbro, was a mechanic at the Western Auto in Livermore Falls and was employed by the Town of Fayette until his retirement.
He was devoted to his family and was an outdoorsman who loved wildlife, particularly birds. He always had a project he was working on as he was the ultimate “putterer.” As was often said of him, “he loved to work on anything he could put wheels on.” His greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family.
He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Janice, of East Livermore; one son, Spencer Jackman and his wife, Penny of East Livermore; two daughters, Katherine Philibotte and her husband, Jim of Harrison, and Gay Fletcher and her husband, Allen of Livermore; seven grandchildren, Kyle Herrick and his wife, Ashley, Darcy Herrick and companion, Anthony Brook, Megan Ricker and her husband, Andrew, Craig Jackman and companion, Alexa Smith, Kent Jackman and companion, Lacey Jackson, Keith Smith and Cory Smith; three great granddaughters, Ava Smith, Lea Smith and McKenna Herrick; his stepmother, Dora Jackman of Turner; brother Richard Jackman and his wife, Debbie of Jay; sisters, Arlene Wilkins and companion, Tom Randall of East Livermore, Lois Gray and her husband, Luther of Windham, and Lisa Pratt and her husband, Robert “Bob” of Turner; a very special aunt, Mildred Robinson of Monmouth; uncle, Robert Bamford of Fayette; and a special friend, Ormand Gross, “Jr.” of Chesterville.
He was predeceased by his mother in 1940 and his father in 1979.
