Jack Tedrow

July 10, 1947 ~ January 6, 2022 (age 74) 74 Years Old


John “Jack” Tedrow, Jr., 74 of New Harbor, passed away on the morning of January 6, 2022.  Born on July 10, 1947 in Coudersport, PA, he was the son of Mary Jane and John Tedrow, Sr.

Jack grew up in New Jersey where he attended schools and graduated from high school.  After graduation, he served with the U.S. Army, where he attained the rank of Sergeant.  Upon his honorable discharge, he found his way to Bangor, Maine, and ultimately New Harbor.

Jack lobstered out of New Harbor for over 40 years, most recently aboard his boat “Jane the Pain” which was seen in the movie “Message in a Bottle”.  He retired about five years ago and spent those years traveling with his wife, Jane.  They spent winters just outside of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

He was an avid golfer. He enjoyed puttering in his garage and wood working. He also would meet with fishing buddies at the co-op most mornings.

He is survived by his wife, Jane; her four children, 4 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.

He will be laid to rest privately in the New Harbor Cemetery in the spring. 

Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, 612 Main Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543.  Condolences, and messages for his family, may be expressed by visiting:
