LEWISTON — Leander Warren Hiscock, 87, of Jay, formerly of Wilton, passed from his earthly home to his heavenly home late Tuesday evening, April 25, at Central Maine Medical Center, Lewiston.
He was born May 31, 1929, in Wilton, the son of Elwood and Addie (Knowles) Hiscock and received his education in local schools. He was employed at the Wilton Woolen Mill prior to working at IP at the Otis Mill. In 1965 he transferred to the Androscoggin Mill where he was employed as a wood scaler until his retirement in 1987.
He was a former member of the Wilton Volunteer Fire Department and enjoyed fishing and hunting but especially enjoyed summers at his camp on Sand Pond with family get-togethers. He enjoyed snowmobiling in his younger years and he was always in attendance for any events that his grandchildren participated in. He had attended the Dryden Baptist Church most recently, but was a former deacon, usher, and trustee of the Jay Baptist Church.
Leander was a very kind, loving, and caring man who was devoted to his family and the Lord.
He is survived by his loving wife of 69 years, Theresa (Williams) Hiscock, whom he married March 13, 1948, in Dryden; their children, Julia (Vern) Romanoski of Jay, Jean (Bud) Willett of Wilton, Todd (Lisa) Hiscock of Livermore, Kirk (Frances) Hiscock of Wewahitchka, Fla., and Lori (Pete) Holman of Dixfield; one brother, Joe Hitchcock and his wife, Barbara “Gilly,” of Kingfield; two sisters, Marcia Smith of Jay and Marie Smith (Omer) of Wilton; 13 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren.
He was predeceased by a son, Frank Hiscock; grandson, Scott Paul; three brothers, Merrill, Gilbert and Robert; and, a sister, Elizabeth Vining.
