Lee "Will" Laughlin

September 6, 1952 ~ June 25, 2020 (age 67)


Lee Frank William Laughlin, 67 of Pemaquid, known to the local community as "Will", passed away on the afternoon of June 25, 2020, after a brief illness at Pen Bay Medical Center. He went peacefully with his loving wife, Toni Farnsworth Laughlin, at his side.

Will was born on September 6th, 1952 at Paddington Hospital, London, UK, and spent his formative years there. He was the son of Ellen Daisy (McCowan) Laughlin and Frank Roger Laughlin, a USAF B-17 pilot.

Will came to the US and spent thirty plus years here until he passed. He had a great love for this country, especially the Pemaquid Peninsula where he lived the last few years of his life. He and his wife Toni met at Midcoast Country Chapel in Wiscasset in 2013, and were married on September 6th, 2014.

Will was employed by George "Trey" Walker as part of his paint crew, which he loved; and the last year as a carpenter/painter at Pemaquid Boatworks up until a week before his death.

Will is survived by his wife, Toni Farnsworth Laughlin of Pemaquid; a sister, Lisa Laughlin of London, UK; two sons, Paul Laughlin of London, UK, and Nathan Beckwith (Laughlin) of Middlebury, VT.  He was predeceased by his son, Joshua Rodgow Laughlin in 2004.

There will be a private spreading of his ashes at a future date, at Pemaquid Point which was his favorite place to sit by the ocean.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Will’s memory to either the Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758516, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8516; or toward the fund for the Bristol Veterans Memorial.
