HARRISON —  Linwood Feero, died peacefully in his sleep at home on Thursday, March 28, 2013, at the age of 67. He was born in 1946 in Chicago, Ill., and grew up in the nearby town of Skokie. Linwood was a veteran and served in the U.S. Navy, where he was an aviation bosun’s mate and flagman on an aircraft carrier. His ship ventured to Okinawa and other Japanese locations as well as to Australia.

Linwood’s lifelong career revolved around his expertise as a Master Electrician with working licenses for both Maine and New Hampshire. He also had a variety of interests that made his storytelling and sense of humor unique. He had a clever way of coining words and phrases that made everyone laugh. Linwood had a keen eye for photography that can be seen in the cruise ship vacation photos he and his wife took only last month in Jamaica and Cozumel.

Linwood loved to go deer hunting but confided that the thing he liked most about it was being in the woods in the early morning mist, and watching the sunlight play in forest.  It would be quiet and soulful with momentary intrigue produced by a chipmunk or birds chirping. He loved being outdoors. NASCAR — need we say more? He was the most avid of fans. Linwood was an honest and fiercely loyal person, who could be relied on to help if needed; well, except if he was watching the weather channel. He was captivated by it no matter the time of year. The cooking shows were other channels that he really enjoyed. He had confidence in cooking and experimenting with different recipes and it became a real hobby.

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Nancy Johnson Feero; their son Joseph Feero of Bridgton, his daughter Rachel Feero Oakes of Washington, and son Michael Feero of Waterford, and their spouses and grandchildren.

Linwood loved wildlife and the outdoors and his loon license plates attested to his interest in conservation. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to send a donation in Linwood’s honor to the Lakes Environmental Association, 230 Main St., Bridgton, ME 04009.

We love and miss Linwood dearly and will cherish our memories of him.
