Mark Glazier Gould, 68, passed peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at the Alfond Center for Health in Augusta, ME with the love of his life, Dinah Hoch, by his side. He was born on May 17, 1953, in Augusta, ME to George and Lorraine “Tillie” (Glazier) Gould and is a graduate of Cony High School and the University of Maine at Orono. Mark also did post-graduate work at Penn State University.
Mark was a true self-made man, always living life on his own terms. He was generous, enthusiastic, loved animals and easily made friends wherever he went. Mark owned and operated a dairy farm in Sidney for over 25 years, producing hay for his farm as well as others. Recently he expanded his interests to auctions of all kinds and ran an auction company along with his partners. He loved a good treasure hunt and sharing his finds as a way to educate others about history. Mark often guided the young people in his life through his love of teaching. Mark gathered regularly with his neighbors and friends at the Middle Road General Store in Sidney to share a meal and news from around town.
Surviving family includes his brothers: David of Jay and Alan and his wife Elaine of Freeport; his sister, Linda of Redmond, WA; nephews: Callum and Liam and niece, Catriona of Freeport; aunts: Faith Gould of Richmond, Arlene Gardner of Hallowell and Jean Glazier of Pittston as well as many cousins throughout Maine and beyond.
