PORT CLYDE — Jason Libby, a lifelong resident of the St. George Peninsula, died in his sleep at home, on Saturday, February 17, 2024.

Jason graduated from Georges Valley High School in Thomaston in 1992, where he played soccer, was the class clown, and made his mark on all those around him.

He started his lifelong commercial fishing career while still in school, fishing for scallops, shrimp, and groundfish with his father, Glen, and uncle Gary on the family fishing boats out of Port Clyde. Later, Jason also spent time fishing on boats out of Gloucester and New Bedford, Massachusetts as captain, mate, and crew. He fished with his uncle Wayne, brother Justin, longtime captain Stephen Sukeforth, and on many other boats with dorymates who loved and respected Jason.

Jason enjoyed spending his free time with his children and grandchild, going out of his way to ensure they were cared for and loved.

Jason is survived by his parents, Donna Winslow and her husband Robert of Hope, and Glen Libby and his companion Claire Bissell of Port Clyde; his grandmothers, Rosalie Johnson of Camden and Annie Thorndike of Thomaston; his children, Marisa Libby of Rockport and Alexander Libby and his sister Raven Meklin of Thomaston; granddaughter Raelyn of Rockport; step-sons, Wesley Hooper and Cody Hooper of Thomaston; sisters, Jenna Libby of Appleton, Jessica Libby of Hope, and a brother, Justin Libby and his companion Alexandria Brasili of Port Clyde; uncles, Gary Libby of Port Clyde, Wayne Thorndike and his companion Dianne Rahkonen of South Thomaston, and Kelly Thorndike of Naples; aunt Jeanne Johnson of Whitefield; many cousins, nieces, and nephews; and his close companion Jess Waters of St. George.

Jason was pre-deceased by his beloved son Michael Jason Libby; and his grandparents Roger and Betty Libby of Port Clyde and Donald Thorndike of Thomaston.

A celebration of his life, memories, and breaking of bread will be held on Sunday, March 10, from 1 - 4 p.m., at the Black Harpoon Restaurant in Port Clyde; all are welcome.
