Vincent P. Cardone

BRIDGTON — Vincent P. Cardone, 84, of Harrison, died Thursday, Dec. 1 at Bridgton Hospital. He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on May 22, 1927, the son of Vincent Joseph and Marie Babino Cardone. He graduated from high school and served his country in the U.S. Marines. Following his time in the service he continued his education in radio
and television. He was an electronics engineer, as well as a mechanical and design engineer. He had many patents through companies that he worked for and held several of his own. He enjoyed golf and bowling in his younger years. He was very innovative; he built a dumb waiter using a garage door operator so he would not have to carry groceries up the two flights of stairs. He founded Bud’s Barge, a floating ice cream business on Long Lake and Sebage Lake, featured on “Bob’s Basement” on Channel Six News. He was a strong family man, always putting family needs before
his own.

He is survived by his wife, Roberta (Vlaun) of Harrison; a daughter, Cynthia; two sons, Thomas and Jeffrey; grandchildren, Jennifer, David, Hope and Alysa; and a great grandson, Gabriel.
