Obituary for Arthur Hendsbee Jr.

Arthur  Hendsbee Jr.
WINDSOR, MAINE
And it came to pass (Shakespeare) that Arthur B. Hendsbee, Jr. met his Lord three days after his 95th birthday. Arthur was born in Albion, ME on September 24, 1922 and worked on the family farm until he left to find his way in life in Connecticut.
He served during WWII in the Army Air Force and went on to work at Togus VA for 35 years as an EKG Technician.
He and his wife, Laura, lived on Togus Pond in Augusta during their early years and formulated lifelong friendships with many of their neighbors.
Arthur enjoyed hunting and other activities including a garbage route and a wood delivery from the neighborhood lumber mill.
The family then purchased The White Owl Motel in South China, which they operated for six years.
Arthur was a member of the Bethlehem Lodge of Augusta, a Shriner, member of the Whitefield Lions Club and a Past District Governor.
He and Laura enjoyed many trips to Lions Conventions. Arthur continued to work as the Maintenance Supervisor for Windsor Fair and served on its Board of Directors.
He was noted for his extremely quick wit and passion for words. A voracious reader, he could rarely be stumped spelling or give a definition of any word. At family gatherings, he would delight in entertaining all present with his sometimes “off color” poetry. He had a special bond with his only daughter, Cecilia and enjoyed many trips to Hollywood Slots and the Oxford Casino with his besties, Frank and Gordon. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Arthur was predeceased by his wife, Laura (Rogers) Hendsbee; his parents, Arthur B. Hendsbee, Sr. and Edna M. (Wrigley) Hendsbee; brothers: John Hendsbee, George Hendsbee, Sr. and Edward Hendsbee.
He is survived by his very special and dear friend, Gladys Sparks of Brewer; his children: Michael Hendsbee and wife Susan of Antelope, CA, Cecilia Genthner and husband Frank of Bristol and Wayne Hendsbee of Farmingdale; a brother, James Hendsbee of Clinton; three sisters: Althea Carter of Jenison, MI, Faith Rankins of Randolph and Dena Hubley of Ft. Myers, FL; a dear sister-in-law, Erlene Hendsbee of Chelsea; nine grandchildren: Michael Hendsbee and wife Missy, Lisa Skaggs and husband Mick, Courtney Hendsbee, Christine Gove and husband Scott, Deering Genthner, Jr., Frankie Genthner, Michael P. Genthner, Molly Kimball and husband Patrick and Megan Hendsbee and friend Ron Peaslee; twelve great-grandchildren: Korie, Shelbi, Ashley, Mariah, Michael James, Deering III, Nathan, Ethan, Christopher, Baker, Sean and Megan; seven great-great-grandchildren: Asher, Kaylynn, Christopher, Paige Kelton, Tinnlee, Leila and Lillian as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
A funeral service will be held on Monday, October 2nd at 6 PM at Plummer Funeral Home, Windsor Chapel, 983 Ridge Rd., Rt. 32, Windsor. Burial with military honors will be held at 1 PM on Wednesday, October 4th at the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Mt. Vernon Rd., Augusta.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Arthur’s memory to: Whitefield Lions Club, P.O. Box 52, Coopers Mills, ME, 04341.
