CASCO — Thomas E. Quinn, 49 of Meadow Road in Casco, passed away on July 3, 2012 after a brief illness.

Thomas was born in Portland on May 6, 1963 to James “Gus” and Elizabeth (DiMillo) Quinn. Thomas attended Portland schools and graduated from Portland High School in 1982.

Tom was an active member of his community, giving freely of his time and caring. He enjoyed skiing and shared his love for the sport by teaching skiing lessons for 18 years for the Lake Region Pleasant Mountain Ski Club. He was a member of the board of the Greater Bridgton Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce for many years. He was a regular supporter of Lake Region High School Project Graduation, organizing a pancake breakfast fundraiser during Casco Days for many years.

Tom loved gardening and cooking, much to the benefit of his family and friends. He was an avid outdoorsman. His favorite place to be was at camp in Sumner with his sons and camp buddies. Tom enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience last October, traveling to Oregon to hunt elk. He proudly returned with a five to six-point elk. Tom loved to tell stories. The trip provided the raw material for hours of stories.

Tom was employed at Hancock Lumber for the past 26 years. He worked at the North Windham, Casco, Bridgton and North Conway locations.

Tom is survived by his wife of 28 years, Maureen (Konon) Quinn; his beloved sons, Anthony and Nathan; his parents of Portland; his sisters, Jeanna Best, Joanna Kwieraga, Cathy Rice, Dianne Chapman and Liz Minervino; his brother, Jimmy Quinn; many nieces and nephews; as well as great-nieces and great-nephews, all of whom he adored.
