Mark A. Proctor, 66

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABRIDGTON — Mark A. Proctor, "PROC," 66, of Bridgton, died Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, at his home.

He was born in Portland on Dec. 24, 1946. He graduated from Casco High School.

Mark proudly served in the Army and worked in many industries throughout his life. The real constant in Marks life, however, was music. His love for playing bass guitar had him in many bands throughout his early years and he continued to play regularly throughout his life, "Long Haired Country Boy."

Along with music, Mark loved his six grandchildren. He could be found playing pass with a football, baseball or shooting hoops with them. He looked forward to their sporting events as well as getting together to watch New England sports. Hearing of their accomplishments made him proud and put the biggest smile on his face.

Mark will forever be remembered by his four children, Sherrie Small of Naples, Sudiek Neptune of Auburn, Roger Wing of Purcelville, Va., and America Proctor of San Francisco, Calif.; his six grandchildren, Jennifer Knapp, Chase Weese, Jordan Weese, Allyson Arel, Denali Neptune and Ashley Wing; his two sisters, Willa Spiller and Caroline Lambertson; and three brothers, James Proctor, John Proctor and David Proctor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur W. and Laura C. (Bennett) Proctor.

Mark touched many people with his bright smile, great sense of humor and gentle, friendly manner. Even through his recent battle with cancer, he kept that smile, sense of humor and persistent will to survive. He will be dearly missed.
