LINCOLNVILLE BEACH — On Friday, June 7, 2024, we lost a wonderful husband, father, brother, and overall great man. Dwight Fraser Snow of Lincolnville, Maine, passed away unexpectedly after a day of work with a friend at his camp on Schoodic Lake.

Dwight was born on Nov 1, 1942, to parents Dwight G. and Winnie H. Snow in Camden, Maine. Dwight spent his childhood between his grandparents’ blueberry farm in Hope and the shores of Camden Harbor.

He graduated from Camden High School in 1961 and enlisted in the United States Air Force soon after. He served for 8 years, traveling the world building ray domes and towers in Japan, Germany, Turkey, and Korea.

Dwight met his wife, Kathy, through friends in the winter of 1963. They married in Camden on October 7, 1967. Dwight and Kathy welcomed their daughter, Katie, in July of 1974.

Dwight worked for the many iterations of the phone company retiring from Verizon after 38 years, in 2008. He met many wonderful friends at work and enjoyed all the overtime he could get.

Dwight loved his work, and doing projects at home, or camp. He always had a project and was always there to help a friend or neighbor. He enjoyed a good walk in the woods, hunting, and fishing with friends along lakes and rivers in Northern Maine. In his retirement, he could be found mowing or puttering and helping with friend’s construction projects. In the afternoon he loved to sit with a drink and watch the wildlife in the backyard or on the lake.

Dwight is predeceased by his father, Dwight Snow, and mother, Winne Snow.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy; daughter, Katie, son-in-law Trevor Mills, and their daughter Amelia of Rockport, Maine; his siblings, Bradford Snow of Somerville Maine, Bernice Ianacone and her husband Bruce of Clifton Virginia, and Beth Snow of Rockport, Maine; many nieces and nephews; and his cousin, Dusty Cram, and his wife Ruthann of Sidney, Maine.
