Frank A. Goldrup
1941 - 2017
AUGUSTA - Frank A. Goldrup, 75, of Leeds, passed away peacefully following a long illness, Friday, Sept. 1, 2017 surrounded by his loving family. He was born Sept. 17, 1941, in Lewiston, the son of Ernest Goldrup and Blanche (Savage) Goldrup.
Frank attended school in Leeds and New Hampshire and graduated from Edward Little High School in 1961. He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1964 - 1966 during the Vietnam War. In the 1960s, he drove a dump truck for Blue Rock Industries and worked in the print shops of JS McCarthy and Twin City Printing. Frank had been self-employed since 1970 as a truck driver and a carpenter.
Frank was a member of American Legion, Fitzgerald-Cummings Post #2, and American Legion Veterans Memorial Post #205, both of Augusta. He enjoyed snowmobiling and 4-wheeling with friends, working in his wood shop, spending time with family and visiting with his friends in the morning at Knowles Lumber. His family will fondly remember the many gatherings which usually included playing horseshoes or an equally competitive game of cards.
Frank is survived by his sister, Florabelle McGinley of Leeds and his brother, Robert Goldrup of Auburn. As he had no children of his own, he leaves many nieces and nephews of which many looked upon him as a favored Uncle and father figure. He also leaves behind a host of long time friends, including Pamela Griffin and her husband Tom, and Sally Labree, his primary caregiver throughout his illness. Frank is predeceased by his parents; sister, Ruth Bade, brothers William, Ernest, Richard, Alton, Edward and George, and his brother-in-law Daniel McGinley, Sr. Messages of condolence may be sent to: www.finleyfuneralhome.com
A graveside service and interment with full military honors will be held 2 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017 at Leeds Plains Cemetery, Plains Road, Leeds.
