HARRISON — Durward “Dody” Maxfield, 84, died Monday afternoon, Oct. 2, 2017, at the Norway Rehab and Living Center, where he had been a resident since last October.

Dody was born in Harrison, on March 6, 1933, the first son of Elizabeth and Harold Maxfield. Dody was a graduate of Bridgton Academy Class of ‘51.

Dody was a builder by trade; he built and remodeled countless homes throughout his career, which lasted until he was 80 years old. He delighted in the fact that he lived his entire life in Harrison until a stroke forced him to leave his beloved town. Dody was an active, longtime member of the Bridgton (Christian & Missionary) Alliance Church and an active member of the local Gideon camp.

He is survived by his son Vern and his wife Brenda of Norway; two cherished granddaughters, Laura (and Brian) Nichols, and Katie (and Tim) Huggins; his four precious great-grandchildren, Madeline, Mason, Matthew and Victoria; brothers John (and Judy), Nicholas (and Beverly); and sister Joan (and George) Wright.
