OXFORD — Glendon H. “Babe” Flanigan, 84, of Oxford, passed away during the early morning hours of Monday, May 11, 2015.

He was born Oct. 15, 1930, in Mapleton, one of nine children of Arthur and Julia Young Flanigan. The family moved to Casco in 1945 and he graduated from Casco High School in 1948. Babe worked at Dielectric in Raymond, before establishing Unique Machine, Inc., in South Casco in 1978 with his brother and nephew.

He was extremely active in Casco town government, the Casco Fire Department, and the Casco Days Celebrations. He coached many generations of children in baseball and T-ball. He truly enjoyed all sports and was an avid Red Sox fan. He loved to spend his free time gardening, bowling, and fishing. He spent the last thirteen winters in Florida, golfing rather than plowing and shoveling snow. He and Velma attended South Paris Baptist Church.

Babe was predeceased by three brothers and three sisters. He was formerly married to Gail (Royce) Flanigan from 1958 until her death in 1999. He then married Velma (Small) Flanigan on Nov. 29, 2002, who survives him. He is also survived by his three sons, Steven of Casco, Peter of Naples and Kurt of Poland; his daughter, Karen of Casco; his stepchildren, Verna Wheeler of Madison Heights, Va., Sherman Small of Bethel, and Samuel Small of West Paris. Babe had thirteen grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.
