Benjamin A. Llewellyn Jr.

AUBURN – Benjamin A. Llewellyn, Jr., of Norway passed away Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021 at the Androscoggin Hospice House with family by his side. He was born in Rumford on June 9, 1945, the son of Benjamin A. Llewellyn, Sr. and Marguerite Johnson Llewellyn and moved to Oxford where he grew up attending schools there.

He met the love of his life Mary Millett and they were married June 6, 1964. They have lived in their home in Millettville for the past 53 years.

Ben worked at the B. E. Cole Shoe Co. in Norway and later for Home Gas Corp. in Oxford, retiring after 25 years.

Ben and Mary spent their summer vacations with the girls traveling to New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island to visit Ben’s family and friends. They enjoyed camping with their friends, dancing at the Brown Bag on Saturday nights and playing card games until the sun came up. He has played poker with the boys since the late 1960’s. His winning hand was always five of a kind. He had to stop playing due to his illnesses and has missed the boys involved.

He was a great roller skater and spent many hours at Motion 26 in Oxford. He and his wife enjoyed traveling in the United States with dear friends Peter and the late Donna Dunn, sightseeing and visiting relatives from the East to the West coast of the U.S.

Ben became Past Master of Tyrian Lodge #73 AF & AM and Past High Priest of Bradford Chapter. Ben had a strong love for old cars, building his 1941 Ford Coupe. This was the beginning of the old car collection that took them to car shows and parades which he dearly loved to be involved with. He was a member of the Norway-Paris Lions Club.

Ben is survived by his wife Mary; two daughters Sherri Llewellyn and significant other Edward Curtis and Kristina Patry and husband David; a sister Debra of Texas; five grandchildren Danielle, Jenney, Sarah, Drew and Tyler and significant other Ryanne Kahkonen; five great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
