Carroll S. Fogg

NORWAY — Carroll S. Fogg (Foggy), 96, of Waterford  died  Nov. 14, 2010  at Stevens Memorial Hospital, in Norway.

Carroll was born Sept. 13, 1914 in Cumberland, the son of Walter R. Fogg and Christina (Cram) Fogg. He attended Cumberland schools and served in the 70th Infantry Division during World War II in Europe. On Sept. 29, 1935, he married Katherine McAllister.

For many years, he worked for HP Hood & Son, Inc. throughout Maine until his retirement in 1972. He continued working with his son Ray for 10 years and then part-time for Dead River in Norway until the age of 90.

He was active for many years as a member of Masonic Lodge #132, Waterford, the Shrine, Bear Mt. Grange #62, South Waterford, and VFW Fryeburg-Lovell.

Until recently, he had the gift of good health and was able to drive up until his 96th birthday.

Carroll was very active and enjoyed many activities with his companion Doris McAllister, friends and family. He enjoyed traveling, watching the Boston Red Sox, playing cards, fishing, hunting, trapping, gardening and telling stories of his past experiences. He had a “secret” fishing spot in northern Maine that he kept only for his family. He started an annual fishing and camping trip with his son Ray 45 years ago. This trip then went on to include his grandchildren and then grew to include his great-grandchildren. His last trip this past summer was very special to him at age 95. He had his son, four of his grandchildren and one of their wives and six of his great-grandchildren with him when he said goodbye to his “secret” place.  Carroll knew in his heart it was his last trip there, but the memories would last forever.

In addition to his parents, Carroll was predeceased by his wife, Katherine on May 12, 1991; his brothers and sisters.

Carroll is survived by his two children, Marcia (Fogg) Glatt of Levant and Ray Fogg of Glenburn; his six beloved grandchildren; his much loved 10 great-grandchildren; his beloved companion of many years Doris McAllister of Norway; and several nieces and nephews.

Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19 followed by a funeral service at 1 p.m. at Oxford Hills and Weston Funeral Services, 1037 Main Street, Route 26 in Oxford.
