LEVANT - Harry Edwin Carey, 71, passed away unexpectedly Jan. 25, 2011, due to natural causes, doing what he loved most, working outdoors at his home. He joins in heaven his beloved wife of 53 years, Mary-Ann (MacLeod) Carey, who died in June. He was born May 30, 1939, in Milo, and moved his family to Levant in 1968. He worked for Bangor and Aroostook Railroad for 23 years before pursuing his dream of living off the land by cutting and hauling wood and growing vegetables for their business, Carey's Farm at the Brewer Farmer's Market. Both he and Mary-Ann were hard workers. He was an avid reader, historian, outdoorsman, boxing fanatic and was very interested in his family genealogy. He leaves behind his loving daughter, Jean Carey Jenkins and husband, Adam Jenkins; his son, James Carey and Stephenie; his grandchildren, Chelsea, Caitlin and Sophie Jenkins, Justin and Anna Carey; great-grandchild, Hailey Carey; his mother, Evelyn Carey; his sister, Ruth Janeski; his brother, Richard Carey; and his wife's dog, JJ. He was predeceased by his first son, Harry Jeffrey Carey; his first grandchild, James Jeffrey Carey; and his father, Harry V. Carey.
