Obituary

Meddybemps - Arthur Wayne Furlong, 76, of Meddybemps passed away June 4th at Calais Hospital after he lost his toughest battle of all, cancer. He was born in Calais on February 6, 1944, son of the late Doris and Damon Furlong.

In his younger years he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors. He was a past member of St. Croix bowling club, tax collector of Baring, and selectman of Meddybemps. He was a graduate of Calais Memorial High School, class of 1962. During his senior year he enlisted in the Army National Guard 262 Engineer Battalion. During his service he was part of the National Guard Maine State Rifle Team, in which he won many medals and trophies for being an expert marksman. After 28 years of service he retired as 1st Sergeant of Calais, Brewer Armories. He worked for Eastern Maine Electric and in 1989, during Hurricane Hugo, he suffered a terrible electrical accident. After 18 months he overcame all odds and returned to Eastern Maine Electric as a staking engineer. After 42 years of being employed by Eastern Maine Electric and being a member of Local 1057 Linesman Union, he retired. During his retirement he owned and operated Furlong Construction and employed many others in the area during that time.

He was predeceased by an infant son, Kevin, sisters-in-law, Helen Cameron and Donna Furlong, mother and father-in-law Alton and Barbara Cox, grandparents Ruel and Mabel Furlong, nephew, Stacy Furlong, and a special furry companion, Ben, who never left his side for 12 years.

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Carolyn, a son Brian Furlong and partner Tammy Littlefield of Veazie, a daughter Vicki Jones and husband Dennis Jones of Pembroke, a granddaughter Donna-Ray Furlong and husband Matthew Wiggett of Charlotte, brothers Duane Furlong and wife Kelly Furlong of Charlotte, and Lyle Furlong of Charlotte, and a great-granddaughter who was his pride and joy, Charlotte Wiggett of Charlotte; sister-in-law Lorraine Pike of Orrington; and his extended National Guard Family. And a special thank you to his home health nurse, Melanie Howard, and his physical therapist, Jen Flemming.

Visitation will be held at Arthur’s home, 23 Lake Shore Lane, Meddybemps, on Friday, June 12 from 6 - 8 p.m. A graveside service with military honors will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, June 13 at Round Pond Cemetery in Charlotte. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Arthur’s memory to the Charlotte Vol. Fire Department. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
