SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A longtime Maine log truck driver is being remembered by his colleagues by doing what they did best: Twenty logging trucks led a funeral procession for 72-year-old Maxell “Mackie” Moore, who also had stints behind the wheel as a driver of race cars and school buses.

The Morning Sentinel of Waterville says truckers from across Maine turned up for Moore’s funeral Thursday afternoon in Skowhegan. The 72-year-old Moore died April 27 in Skowhegan. For the last 20 years, he drove pulp trucks.

After Moore’s service, his fellow truckers fired up their engines and drove up U.S. Route 201 for a reception outside of Skowhegan. Moore’s ashes are to be buried in Anson.
