Prospect Harbor
Calvin La Forrest Stinson Jr. known to many as Trug, passed away peacefully on October 10, 2019 with family members by his side. He was born Feb 3, 1928 at Stinson Hospital, Bangor, Maine
He studied at public schools in Prospect Harbor before attending and graduating from Higgins Classical Institute 1946. He then went on to study Business at University of Maine at Orono graduating 1949.
Cal was then drafted to serve in the Korean War 1951-1952. He returned to Prospect Harbor where he worked in the family business; serving as both President and the Treasurer until its sale in 1990.
Cal spent many years bowling with friends on the Herring Chokers Team in Ellsworth. He golfed avidly at both White Birches and Jordan River Country Club. His major love was Trap Shooting which he began doing with his Dad during the end of high school. He excelled and traveled the country competing in year around events. He was inducted into the Maine State Sports Hall of Fame (1993), then inducted into the National Trapshooting Hall of Fame (2013), and finally the newly created Maine State Trapshooting Hall of Fame (2018). Cal will be remembered for being a jokester, his sense of humor, and a gentleman, but, mostly for that smile and mischievous twinkle in his eye.

I recently came across a note he wrote to me when I was a child. I think it was for my birthday. It was in his own handwriting and addressed to “Neannie,” which was a nickname I had when I was pretty young. It is kind of funny because he was really the only one who called me that on a consistent basis. I always took it as a term of endearment, and it made me feel special when he addressed me as Neannie. Goodbye, Uncle Trug, I love you and will miss you. I hope you and your siblings are having a great reunion in heaven.
