Phippsburg – Charlie L. Kane Jr., 53, of Phippsburg, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 31, 2019. He was born in Damariscotta, the oldest son of Charlie and Betty Jean (Nickerson) Kane. He grew up in Phippsburg and attended Morse High School. Upon leaving school Charlie pursued his passion and obtained his Class A license. He loved the feel of the open road in front of him and the sky was the limit. He was employed for a few years with J. R. Hill, where he was getting the feel of the “Big Rigs”, soon it would be time to hit the road for long hauls. Charlie spent many years traveling across county, experiencing all that he could and he loved every minute of it. For a few years he was employed with Hawkes Tree Service, to stay closer to home for his family, and most recently back with J. R. Hill
On June 21, 1996, Charlie married his sweetheart, Teresa Cram. The couple shared 24 years together and raised 5 children until her death on March 4, 2011.
Charlie was lucky enough to find love again, Sara Montegut was his love who stood by his side and together they were making memories.
Charlie was a natural artist and could draw most anything. He has a passion for “Big Rigs” and could draw any model you could name. He also had a wide collection of model trucks he assembled, something that he was very proud of. Charlie was most proud of his family and always made sure they were well taken care of. They were always the top priority in his life and there wasn’t anything that he wouldn’t do for them. He will be missed by all those that loved him.
He is predeceased by his wife Teresa Kane, and his father, Charlie L. Kane Sr.
