1958 – 2014

LEWISTON — Dale V. Buck, 55, of Poland, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 23, at Central Maine Medical Center.

He was born in Norway on Aug. 5, 1958, a son of Hollis Winfield and Yoshie (Goda) Buck. He attended Telstar High School. Dale worked for several years at C.N. Brown in South Paris, before venturing out on his own as a carpenter.

He loved the outdoors, including salt water fishing for striped bass on his boat off Orr’s Island and archery hunting throughout Western Maine.
