1947 – 2015

LEWISTON — Clifford L. Crosman, 68, of Lisbon passed away after a brief illness at Central Maine Medical Center on Tuesday, Sept. 8, with his family by his side.

He was born on April 7, 1947, in Lewiston, the son of Edwin L. and Mary (Kenopensky) Crosman and attended local schools, graduating from Lisbon High School before heading off to an apprenticeship at Bath Iron Works. He married his wife, Sherry (Chase) Crosman, on Sept. 17, 1966, and together, they raised their three children.

Clifford worked at Bath Iron Works for 45 years, working his way from an apprentice to a supervisor before he retired in 2010. He loved to saltwater fish, hunt, boat and spend time on his four-wheeler. He was a member of the NRA and Lisbon Fish and Game Association and could frequently be found target-shooting before hunting season. When he wasn’t enjoying the outdoors, he could be found on his John Deere tractor or in his garage “man cave,” working on his cars. Clifford was a man who would always lend a hand building houses for friends and family, usually with his brother, Chris. He was often described by many as a man’s man.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Sherry Crosman; his three children, Jeff Crosman of Lisbon, Jennifer and her husband, Kieran Johnston, of Lisbon, and Jamie Crosman of Harpswell; his brother, Christopher and his wife, Debbie Crosman, of Bowdoin; and a sister, Carole Crosman-Levesque of Durham; five grandchildren, Justin Crosman, Jayme Skelton and Jacob, and Kenny and Kiera Johnston; as well as several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Clifford was predeceased by his parents; and a brother, Carlton “Billy” Crosman.
