Maurice E. York Jr.

AUBURN — Maurice Edward York Jr., 70, of Oxford, died Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012.

He was born Nov. 27, 1941, in Oxford to Maude (Pike) and Maurice York Sr. He attended school in Oxford and remained on the homestead in Oxford all of his life. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, camping, walking, picking berries and working in his garden.

He was always very proud of his potatoes and a walk through the garden always took place when you stopped in to visit.

Jr. worked at Penley Mills in West Paris, until poor health forced him to retire early. Ed and Nancy Young and Donnie Knight remained friends of his all his life; he was happy to receive a visit from his childhood friend, Ken Twitchell, last summer.

Jr. is survived by his siblings, Sharlene Stefani of Dixfield, Robert of Bethel, Raymond of Arizona, Priscilla Nickerson of Oxford, Carol of Oxford and Gloria Moore of Kentucky; five cousins including Jean McKay of Naples; and many nieces and nephews.

Jr. was predeceased by his parents, Maurice and Maude; and his sister, Ruth Alice (York) Davis.

Graveside services will be held in the spring at Webberbrook Cemetery in Oxford. Arrangements are under the direction of Chandler Funeral Homes & Cremation Service, 45 Main Street, South Paris.
