MILO - Paul R. Robertson died Jan. 2, 2005, at home following a lengthy illness. He was born June 3, 1929, a son of Neill and Susie (Daggett) Robertson above the railroad station in Sherman Station. He attended high school in Greenville and Island Falls, graduating in 1946, at age 16. Paul had a love for railroading, working for more than 40 years as a station agent/telegrapher for the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad, in stations from Aroostook County, Greenville, Milo, Derby, Searsport, favorites being Brownville, a converted caboose, and Monson Jct., living with his family above the station. Coming from a musical family, Paul had several brothers that played for the Big Bands, himself being an accomplished clarinetist. He enjoyed coaching at the youth level, having very fond memories instructing the Island Falls Little League team, with friend Brian Wing in 1963, especially taking the team on an after season camping trip to Moosehead Lake. After many years of wondering why anyone would chase a little white ball around a field, he tried golfing at the age of 50, got hooked, played daily after his retirement in 1989. Paul was very family-friend oriented, getting much enjoyment from preparing his corn chowder, putting on a pot of coffee, spending an evening playing cards. He is survived by his wife, Denice Stevens Robertson; sons, Joel Robertson and wife, Marie, of Washington State, twin sons, Kirby Robertson and wife, Valerie, of Milo, Kevin Robertson and wife, Patricia, of Thomaston; sisters, Roberta Kittredge, husband, Philip, of Bangor, Loretta Grinnell of Milo; grandchildren, April Bishop of Island Falls, Jason Robertson of Texas, Katie Robertson of Milo, Ben Robertson of Vermont, Sarah Robertson of Rockland, Andrew and Nathan Robertson of Thomaston. Paul has three great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews. A graveside service will be held in the spring of 2005.
