SANGERVILLE- Kirk Hugh Harrington, 55, died September 9, 2008, at Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft. He was born in Bangor, October 14, 1952, the middle son of Clarence “Hank” and Marjorie (Junck) Harrington.

Kirk graduated from Dexter Regional High School in 1971. He worked for many years at local industries as well as for his family’s various businesses. A very creative and talented carpenter, he built several houses and camps. Kirk also was mechanically gifted, often fixing motors that others could not. His love of guns and cannons fueled his competitive spirit in his quest to be the one with the biggest and loudest source of thunderous noise in the neighborhood. Adventurous and seemingly fearless since birth, Kirk rarely passed up an opportunity that had the potential for excitement and danger – no matter how ill-fated it seemed to the rest of us.

Kirk was predeceased by his grandparents, his parents, and his older brother, Karl. He is survived by his brother, Kennedy and his wife, Julie of Parkman; a son, Luke and his wife Christina of Dexter, and grandchildren, Collin of Dexter and Chrystopher of PA; 3 daughters, Heather and her husband, Mike of NH, Holly and her husband, Damien, and grandchildren Abigail and Noah, all of LaGrange, and Hope of Dexter; nieces and nephews, Jessica, Cristal, John and Neil.

His humor and wit will be missed by many but especially by close friends, Joan, Brian, Jody, Phil, Dana, Dale, David, Fred, and their families. Kirk was a loyal and generous friend that was quick to lend a helping hand in times of need. The “Chronicles of Kirk” will be remembered and re-told for many years to come. Rest now without pain – life’s wild ride is over, and you gave it all you had.

A memorial service will be held at 3 PM, Thursday, September 11, 2008, at Crosby & Neal, 61 Main St. in Dexter. Friends may call from 2 PM until the time of the service. Burial will be in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Dexter at a later date.
