Hartland, ME-Clifton H. Sprague, 91, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 at Sanfield Rehabilitation and Living Center.
He was born in Winthrop, Maine on August 15, 1917, the son of Harold and Hazel (Towns) Sprague. He married Rachel Ham on October 19, 1934 and together they raised their family.
Clifton claimed to have had three-fourteen year careers; one in the Hartland Tannery, one for Baxter Bros. canning, and one with Bowman-Littlefield Construction.
