CAMDEN — Friends and the larger community lost a good friend July 9 when Samuel F. Manning, 89, died at his home surrounded by his wife, Susan, and two daughters. 

Camden remembers a talented friend with a big smile who loved the sea, was an renowned illustrator, and enjoyed serenading the harbor with his harmonica. 

Through the week, the dory Sam and Susan rowed for years through Camden Harbor is filling with flowers, as the community pays tribute to a man who will always remain close to the hearts of many.
