NORTH ANSON - William O. "Bill" Libby Jr., 61, of North Anson, passed away peacefully Feb. 23, 2014, with his wife and children by his side at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass., after a long battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was born in Skowhegan on Oct. 6, 1952, the son of William O. Sr. and Dolline (Perkins) Libby.

Bill graduated from Madison Area High School and then served four years in the Marine Corp. He then continued his education at the University of Maine at Farmington, graduating with a bachelor's degree in political science. Bill worked for SD Warren (Sappi) for 20 years before retiring in 2002. In 1986, he purchased the Anson Mobile Home Park, making great improvements through his hard work with his trusty John Deere tractor.

On Valentine's Day in 1993, Bill married the love of his life, Tina. He was a great family man and enjoyed taking trips around the country, especially to Florida. He loved many outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. One of his favorite pastimes was boating with his wife, two stepchildren Casey and Bill, along with their beloved dog, Scully. They would explore different islands off the coast of Maine. He loved going on Corvette and motorcycle rides with his wife and dog. They would spend their time exploring all the covered bridges in Maine and New Hampshire. He also loved motorcycle rides with friends, especially his stepson, Bill, and stepson-in-law, Jonathan.

Bill was predeceased by his parents; and a sister, Sherry.
