PORTLAND — Barry A. Wilcox, 70, of Falmouth, formerly of Cumberland, died unexpectedly on July 22.
Born on Nov. 25, 1940, in Brockton, Mass., he was the son of Marion (Bruns) and Roy T. Wilcox.
In 1959 he graduated from Deering High School, and in 1963 he graduated from University of Maine Orono with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
For 35 years he worked for Nestle.
An active member of the Cumberland community throughout his adult life, he served as chairman of the School Board, and volunteered in youth sports as an umpire and coach.
He truly enjoyed golf, and served on the board of directors at Val Halla and was past president of Val Halla Golf Association.
His good-natured character and easy spirit contributed to a family home where friends and family were welcomed with an open heart and non-judgmental acceptance. A wonderful father and devoted grandfather, he will be well-remembered and missed by all who knew him.
