CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Wilfred R. Cline, 84, died Wednesday, March 19, 2008, at his home. He was born May 17, 1923, in Lubec, the first child of Charles R. and Maude McDowell Cline. He married Lois Creath and together they had David and Christine Ann. After Lois' untimely death, he married Ruby Moores and together they had Sherrill Marie. The family lived most of their lives in Lubec and later moved to Woodland. It was his ill health that forced the migration to Tennessee and warmer weather. Wilfred was a carpenter, fisherman and loved the ocean and Maine. He and Ruby traveled to Holland, Germany, Paris and across the U.S. He was a 55-year member of Washington Masonic Lodge No. 37 of Lubec, something that gave him great pride.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Ruby; son, David; daughters and special sons-in-law, Sherrill and Allan Harriman, and Christy and Charles Halsted; four grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. He was especially close to grandson, John Harriman, with whom he shared many memorable experiences. John's sons, Matthew and Lucas, new additions to the family, filled Wilfred's last months with great joy. His only granddaughter, Angela Olson Hart of Bangor, will forever cherish their tea parties. He is also survived by brothers, Ronald of Washington, Edward of Calais; sister, Mary Coggins of Lubec, many nieces and nephews. LUBEC - Graveside services for Wilfred and Ruby Cline will be held at Split Hill Cemetery, West Lubec.(Bangor Daily News)
