KENNETH R. EMERSON
In 1971 he graduated from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in Augusta and was a Penobscot Deputy Sheriff until his retirement in 1996. During this time he also leased the Newport Golf Course located on the Old Newport Road. He was a member of the Corinna American Legion and a 25 year member of the Corinna Fire Department.
Ken and Charlene also enjoyed the winter months at their residence in Zephyrhills, FL enjoying special times with friends and family. Dad loved to play golf. It was his lifelong hobby. He had shelves of trophies, including five hole-in-ones! He was a man of few words but wouldn't miss an opportunity to crack a joke or play a prank. He especially loved to tease his grandchildren. They lovingly named him "The Ole Buzzard." We love and greatly miss him, but we draw strength and comfort knowing that he is now with his Heavenly Father.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Charlene (Buck) Emerson of Newport; daughter Terrie Lee (Emerson) Murray and husband James (Butch), granddaughter Shana and husband Alton Anderson, great granddaughter Lauryn and great grandson Aidan of Corinna, granddaughter Michelle and husband Justin Paradis of Corinna; son Allen Lee Emerson, grandson Brandon of Sangerville and grandson Kyle of Dexter; son James P.
