BREWER – Robert Blaine Wolverton, 86, died peacefully April 22, 2009, at his home. He was born Dec. 23, 1922, in Houlton, the son of Allison and Madeline (Boulier) Wolverton. After graduation from Bangor High School, Robert served his country in the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II as a mechanic on the B-29, stationed on the island of Tinian in the South Pacific. Returning after the war, he and his wife of 54 years, Natalie, eventually settled in Brewer, where they raised two children, Roger and Jennifer. Robert and Natalie were extremely dedicated to their children. Robert spent most of his working career as a salesman in the wholesale food business. After he and Natalie retired they traveled around the country in their motor home named “Bill.” Robert was an avid fisherman spending as much time as he could, trolling for salmon on Chesuncoock Lake in Northern Maine. In the most recent years, he was accompanied by his special friend, Olga McGeehan of South Portland. Robert is survived by a son, Roger Wolverton and his wife, Linda, of Union; a daughter, Jennifer Mangels and her husband, Alex, of Ocala, Fla.; a brother, John Libbey; two sisters, Cynthia Libbey and Joan Scripture; and three grandchildren, Jody Frederick, Nicole Blood and her husband, Isaac, and Cristine Gracie and her husband, Chris. Robert was the very proud great-grandfather of Tashia Frederick, Zac Blood, Brittini and Sarah Gracie, and Maggie Frederick. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Natalie; and two sisters, Francis Stearns and Madeline Martin. A service of remembrance will be held 1 p.m. Sunday, April 26, at Brookings-Smith, Clark-Piper Chapel, 55 South Main St., Brewer, with the Rev. Robert T. Carlson officiating. The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments after the services at 27 Rosebud Lane, Brewer. Interment will be at a later date at Maine Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery, Augusta.
