Baring Plantation – Thomas Victor Farnham, 57, passed away Monday, November 25, 2019 surrounded by his family at Calais Regional Hospital. Tom was born in Hartford, CT on August 31, 1962, son of Thomas and Andrea (Maillet) Farnham.

After graduating from Calais High School, Class of 1980, Tom enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving four years with the Seabees. While serving in the Navy, he met his love, Markie Norman. Following their service, they stayed in California for eight years where he worked as a Master Electrician and operated his own business, Tom’s No Sweat Electric. Eventually Tom and Markie returned to Maine where he started his career with Eastern Maine Electric Co-Op as a lineman.

Tom was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and riding his Harley Davidson. He was a member of the American Legion in Calais and enjoyed spending time in Vanceboro, a place he called home.

Tom was predeceased by his father, Thomas Farnham. Surviving are his mother, Andrea Farnham of Calais; his beloved wife of 28 years, Markie Farnham; his daughter Aleea and her companion Jacob Sterner of Baring; two sons, Thomas Farnham and Sam Wheelhouse of Calais; his granddaughter who was the sparkle in his eye, Lucy Lee; grandson Hunter Sterner; two sisters, Joyce Whitney and husband Tim, and Brenda O’Leary and husband Galen; nieces and nephews, Ashley and Tim Wilcox, Brittney and Jerry Lafavor, Katlyn and Jon Grissom, and Erin O’Leary; numerous great-nieces and great-nephews; his mother-in-law Suzette McVicar; brothers-in-law Kirk Maenhout and wife Sue, Brandon McVicar and Pete Smith; numerous friends too many to mention; his extended family at Eastern Maine Electric Co-Op; and his Remy girl.

A Celebration of Tom’s Life will be held 3 p.m. Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at the Calais Motor Inn, 663 Main St., Calais. A private burial will take place at a later date in the Vanceboro Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Tom’s memory may be made to Machias Savings Bank, 210 North St., Calais, ME 04619. These funds will be used for a scholarship to help a student attending Washington County Community College, studying to be an electrician. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
