Enfield H. Wilson

LOVELL — Enfield Herbert Wilson, 88, a devoted dad and precious “Pa,” passed away on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at the Maine Veterans Home in Augusta.

Enfield was born in North Lovell to Leland and Glenna McAlister Wilson. The early part of his life, he worked in the woods with his team of horses. He worked for the State road crew. He worked for seven years as a baker at Pleasant Mountain Ski Area (now Shawnee Peak). He had his own summer restaurant for three years with his specialty being fried clams. He worked in North Conway, N.H. for Dunkin’ Donuts as a baker. He was a guide for many years during the hunting season. The majority of his later years, he was caretaker of many homes in Lovell including The Halford, Keller, Goss, Hoagland, Crane, Salke and Hertzfelt, to name a few.

He was an Army veteran, who proudly served his country during WWII. He belonged to the VFW Post in Lovell.

Enfield’s pleasures in life were being together with his family, ice fishing with the guys in the Allagash waterways, having a couple of “beef creatures,” camping, and most of all dancing. He also loved his Boston Terriers, the last one being “Half-pint.” Enfield was a hardworking man all of his life. He was a quiet, gentle man of few words and was always there throughout his children’s lives with a helping hand.

He was predeceased by is loving wife, Erma in 2001, his mother in 1962, father in 1969, and three brothers, Kenny in 1997, Buddy in 2003, and Nucky in 2005.
