Obituary

Private funeral services for Niven C. Crawford, 83, who died Monday night at the Gertrude Starrett Nursing Home, were held Thursday at Simmons Funeral Home. The bearers were Oscar E. Starrett, Ralph Spear, of this town, Harold Howard of Belfast and E. Stewart Orbeton of Rockland.

Members of St. George Lodge, F.A.M. attended. Burial was at Blake Cemetery, North Warren.

Mr. Crawford at one time was a familiar figure on the race tracks of fairs in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and this State, and probably one of the best known horses which he owned and drove was Bessie B. Sure. This interest in races he kept up during his entire life, and it was his delight to attend the races at neighboring fairs.

For years he was associated in the lumber business with Crawford and Orbeton of this town, and upon the death of George Orbeton, worked with the Charles Starrett Lumber Co. He retired from active work 17 years ago.

Mr. Crawford was born in Nobleboro, son of James and Jane (Eugley) Crawford and came to this town with the family when he was ten years old.

He was a member of St. George Lodge, F.A.M. Of Henry Knox Chapter of Thomaston and King Hiram Council of Rockland.

He leaves several nieces and nephews.
