Obituary of George Leigh Littlefield

Please share a memory of George to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

George Leigh Littlefield passed away peacefully on March 31, 2024, at the age of 90. 


George was born in Belgrade, Maine to Edwin and Gertrude Littlefield on February 23, 1934. He attended Augusta area schools and served in the Army during the Korean War, where he was stationed at the Panama Canal.


George married Carol Niles in 1958 and they moved to Chicago where George attended Devry Institute and graduated with a technical degree in 1960. They returned to Vassalboro, Maine, and purchased the 1800's farmhouse where George resided until 2018. 


George worked most of his career at International Paper in Jay until his retirement. His greatest passions were his woodworking shop, remodeling of the farmhouse, as well as his multiple flower beds. In his free time, he also enjoyed fishing, traveling, and spending time with his family.


George was predeceased by his parents Edwin and Gertrude, siblings Wilbur, Elizabeth “Betty”, and Donna Littlefield, and his wife Carol. He is survived by his son, Russ Littlefield and daughter-in-law Dana Lundell; his daughter, Diane Anderson and son-in-law Mark; his beloved granddaughters, Carolyn Anderson and her partner Bryer Gallagher, Andi Anderson and her partner Dylan Brooks; and several nieces and nephews.  


A private interment at the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery will be held later in the spring.
