Obituary

AUGUSTA, MAINE
Blaine Norman Clark, age 90, died Sunday, July 5, 2020 at MaineGeneral Hospital in Augusta following a brief illness with his daughter Sandi by his side. He was born in Vassalboro, ME on September 27, 1929 a son of the late Norman and Marion (Shields) Clark.
Blaine graduated from Cony High School. He married Carolyn Maddox on September 18, 1948 and together they raised six children including moving the family from Augusta to Parlin Pond, Jackman, Shawmut, and South Portland. He worked for more than 65 years in the grocery industry starting his journey at A&P before moving on to many years at Samson’s Supermarkets which transitioned to Hannaford Brothers. He retired once from Food City in Lisbon Falls but found retirement so boring he went back and worked several more years.
Blaine loved fishing and spending time with his children and extended family at many cookouts a highlight being the one he hosted for his son Gary’s Army detail of fifteen whom he welcomed like family with only two days advance notice. He liked snowmobile trips and traveling to the White Mountains.
He married Caroline Fleischmann on October 22, 1983. He was a communicant of St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Augusta and was a member of the St. Michael’s Men’s Club, Abnaki Council #334 Knights of Columbus, and Abnaki Assembly #346 Knights of Columbus. He was extremely active in volunteering his time to St. Andrews Catholic Parish.
He was predeceased by his wife of 34 years, Carolyn; son, Glen Clark; daughter, Patti Ochmanski; grandson, Mike Newton; granddaughter, Amanda Ochmanski; brothers, Winston and Gerald Clark; and sister, Norma Bartlett.
Blaine is survived by his wife, Caroline; his children from his first marriage - daughter Sandi Newton and husband Roland of Augusta, son Steve Clark and wife Jean of Albion, son Gary Clark and wife Cindy of Vassalboro, son Peter Clark and wife Cyndy of Augusta. He is also survived by many grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by Caroline’s children - sons Brian and John Mills, and daughter Dorothy Bonsant and husband Tim.
Blaine was fortunate to be lovingly cared for by both his son Pete and daughter Sandi for the last several years. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at MaineGeneral especially those in the CCU for their compassionate care.
Adhering to CDC guidelines of personal distancing and wearing of masks, relatives and friends may visit from 2-4 PM on Sunday, July 12, at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta. A private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Augusta. Burial and committal prayers will follow in Pilgrims Home Cemetery in Monroe.
Blaine and Caroline were long-time volunteers with Greyhound Placement Services both fostering as well as providing a loving home for many greyhounds. In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to Maine Greyhound Placement Service, 231 Old Belgrade Road, Augusta, ME 04330.

Blaine, you are missed so much. I'm sure the first time we met and pet a greyhound was when we met you and Caroline in Augusta way back in 1992. Thank you for that. You started a love affair for us with greyhounds that went on for 25 years, and we hope to adopt again sometime in the future. Thank you for being such a wonderful human and for all you did for greyhound adoption over many years. You will be missed always, I'm sure you were greeted by many Angels when you crossed over, and many had 4 legs and long needle noses. Caroline and all the Clark family, please know we are thinking of you at this difficult time.
Much love. Rest well
MS

Having served as a Catholic priest in Augusta on two separate occasions, I had the great pleasure and privilege of knowing and working with Blaine and Carolyn Clark. They were a one in a million couple. Blaine had that great ability to mix great humor and joy with the hardest of work. We thoroughly enjoyed teasing each other, endlessly!
When I was pastor at St. Andrew's Parish (1998-2003), Blaine would always tease me about the length of my preaching. "I've got lots to do today, so keep it brief."
Once he asked me if I would be long winded on the next weekend. I responded, "You better bring lunch!"
So he did. When I got into the pulpit to preach, Blaine (sitting in the front row) lifted a brown paper bag and tried hard to look stern and not break into a smile. He was successful but I was not! That is only one story of the fondness we had for each other and how much I valued Blaine and Carolyn as parishioners and friends.
My prayers and condolences are with Blaine's family. I will also send to have a Mass said for Blaine in the missions.
God's Peace and consolation on all of you, Mike Seavey

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Blaine, I know that any man who could raise such an caring and upstanding son such as Gary, must have been a great guy. Heartfelt condolences to the family.
Sincerely, Jon Rousseau
