SOUTH PORTLAND — Amos Joseph Link, 75, died Feb. 5 at the Maine Veteran’s Home in Scarborough.
Born on Aug. 14, 1935, to Bernice and August Link of South Portland, he attended schools in South Portland and briefly served in the U.S. Air Force.
For many years he worked for South Portland’s Public Works Department. After he retired he worked as a security officer at Unum and Disney World.
He loved spending time with his family, playing softball and baseball, and going on adventures with his wife Marlene in their motor home.
A lifelong fan of the Boston Red Sox, he measured all players by the standards of Ted Williams.
He was predeceased by his brothers, George and Frederick, and sisters, Bernice Oldham and Dorothy Soucy.
He wasn’t a religious man, but instead he believed in the spirit of each person he met.
Surviving are his wife of 52 years, Marlene A. Link of South Portland; sister Elizabeth Lothamer of Deer Isle, Wayne and Gerry Upton and Joanne Gagnon; his sons and daughter-in-laws, David and Georgette Link, Joseph Link, and Stephen and Kathleen Link and his daughters, Angela Link, Cheryl Ouellette, and Jennifer Link and her partner Ronald Blankenship II; 16 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial visitation was held Feb. 9. Interment will be in Highland Memorial Cemetery, South Portland, at a later date.
Arrangements are by Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland.
