MILO - Malcolm "Mick" F. Stockwell, 85, died peacefully in his sleep on Memorial Day, May 28, 2007, at home in Bangor. He was born Oct. 17, 1921, in Bradford, the son of Ralph R. and Ethel (Chase) Stockwell. He lived in Maine and Connecticut, and graduated from Milo High School. Mr. Stockwell served with distinction in World War II with the U.S. Army. He was a member of the 104th Infantry Division, 413 Co. C, and fought in France, Belgium, and Germany. He received several medals for his valor and bravery. He was proud of his service to his country and the things he saw in the service he never forgot. He loved challenges and lived a full life. He played in bands when he was younger, and he loved to dance. He also loved to ski, skate, and golf. In his later years, as arthritis limited his mobility, he took up pool and was a regular at the Eagles Club, Brewer. His several jobs capitalized on his mechanical skills. He won patents on some of his designs for machine parts. As a sideline, he also did plumbing, heating, and electrical work. In his spare time, he worked on cars. He never met a machine he couldn't fix. In his 60s, he worked at the University of Bridgeport, helping design students bring their inventions to life. This was his favorite job because, as he said, he was learning something new every day. He loved his family and worked hard to support them. He is survived by his wife, Shirley Jones Stockwell of Berlin, Vt.; and his children, a son, Terry Stockwell and his wife, Xiu, of Milo, Cheryl Blaisdell and her husband, Joseph, of Southbury, Conn., Samn Stockwell and her partner, Jackie Johnson, of Montpelier, Vt., and Nancy Garcia and her husband, Juan, of Binghamton, N.Y.; a sister, Mary Sirois of Brewer; and several grandchildren, Nathan and Gordon Stockwell of Belton, Mo., Russell Blaisdell of Austin, Texas, Joseph Blaisdell of Edgewater, Fla., and Anthony and Abigail Garcia of Binghamton, N.Y. He also leaves behind his caring roommate, Sonny Dyer, who helped him in his last years. Many others knew and cared for him and are too numerous to list here. Friends are invited to call 2-3 and 6-8 p.m. Friday, June 1, at Lary Funeral Home, Milo. Funeral services will be conducted 11 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at United Baptist Church of Milo, with the Rev. Ernest Madden officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 22 Atlantic Ave., Brewer, ME 04412.
