Obituary Condolences

BANGOR, Maine -- John William Fitzpatrick Sr., 63, beloved husband of Luanne Fitzpatrick, died surrounded by his loving family and close friends on Nov. 10, 2004 at the Eastern Maine Medical Center after a long illness. He was born Dec. 1, 1940 in Hoosick Falls, N.Y., the son of Francis (Frank) and Theresa (Mang) Fitzpatrick.

John graduated from St. Mary’s Acadeny in 1958 and completed training at the Royal Barber School in New York City before returning to Cambridge, N.Y., where he lived for 40 years. He owned and operated Fitz’s Barber shop for 12 years and subsequently worked as a department manager for the Grand Union Co. for 28 years, gaining many close friends before retiring in 2002.

He was a lifelong sports fan who celebrated several world championships by the Boston Celtics and Pittsburgh Steelers, while being forever frustrated by the Cleveland Indians.

After retirement, he fulfilled his lifelong dream by moving to the coastal Maine village of Bucksport, where he resided with his loving wife of 42 years, Luanne.

John was a devoted communicant of St. Patrick’s Church in Cambridge and a member of the Hoosick Falls Elks Club. He was a founding member of the Cambridge Valley Athletic Association and served two terms on the Cambridge village board.

He will be greatly missed by his devoted wife of Cambridge and Bucksport; his son, John Fitzpatrick Jr., his wife Jacqueline and daughter Lindsay of Bar Harbor; his mother-in-law, Frances Scaglione of Cambridge; several cousins and very close friends.

Friends may visit Sunday between 4 and 7 p.m. at the Ackley-Ross Funeral Home, West Main Street in Cambridge. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Church in Cambridge. Burial will be at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery in Hoosick Falls. Donations may be made in John’s honor to St. Patrick’s Church, Cambridge, NY 12816.
