WINSLOW - Robert "Stubby" Chamberlain, 88, passed away on July 3, 2017.
He was born Nov. 27, 1928, the son of Raymond and Marie (Whittier) Chamberlain, in Berlin, New Hampshire, but spent his early childhood in Ogunquit, where he got his great love of the ocean and beach. He moved to Waterville in 1940 and graduated from Waterville High School in 1947.
He was married to Jacqueline Marcoux for 63 years and together they raised four children.
He served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Midway from 1950 to 1954 as a parachute rigger. After being honorably discharged, he attended Thomas College and graduated in 1957. He worked at C.F. Hathaway for 25 years, John Deere, and retired from the U.S. Postal Service.
Robert was very involved in sports and was an outstanding second baseman during his high school years. He was an avid Red Sox and New England Patriots fan. He spent many years coaching Little League baseball and Pop Warner football, and officiated basketball, baseball and softball for over 20 years.
He was a member of the Waterville Industrial Management Club, Waterville Jaycees, Elks BPOE 905 and a lifetime member of the American Legion. Since retirement, he and Jackie spent many winters in Florida, where they enjoyed the ocean and beach as he had done as a child.
He is survived by his children, James, of Waterville; Thomas and wife Barbara, of Virginia Beach, Va.; and Heidi McDonald and husband Michael, of Newport News, Va.; grandchildren, Natalie Hill and Katee Chamberlain, Christopher and Adam Chamberlain, Ryan and Brooke Chamberlain and Hayley McDonald; and great-grandchildren, Robbie Sprouse and Davis Chamberlain.
