PORTLAND -- Lincoln Copp Denison Sr., 61, of Cornish, passed away May 14, 2012, at Maine Medical Center after a long illness. He was born in Portland June 7, 1950, the son of Orville Boardman and Virginia Copp Denison.

He graduated from Sacopee Valley High School and attended Maine Maritime Academy before graduating from Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute.

He was diagnosed with cancer 20 years ago, but Linc never let the disease slow him down and was an inspiration for his continuous perseverance and positive attitude in fighting his illness.

Linc began his career for Cianbro Corp. in 1974 as a laborer, working his way up to become vice president of operations in the Southern New England region. His career with Cianbro spanned more than 38 years, and was a source of great pride and happiness for him. He made many lifelong friends through the company and was involved in many large projects that included National Semiconductor, Casco Bay Bridge, Portland Pipeline and S.D. Warren Paper Mill.

Linc was loved by all who knew him and touched many lives. He inspired everyone he met with his positive attitude, humor, kindness and unwavering loyalty.

He enjoyed fishing on his boat and on the ice with his close friends and family, and especially enjoyed yearly fishing trips with all his friends to places like Chesuncook Lake. He loved being outside and spending time at his home in Cornish.

A devoted father and grandfather, nothing brought Linc more joy than being with his family. No words can ever describe what Linc meant to his children and grandchildren, but the love and support Granddaddy provided will be his legacy.

He was a member of the Associated Builders and Contractors of Connecticut.

Linc is survived by two sons, Lincoln Jr. and wife Michele (Fate) Denison of Cornish, and Jason and wife Danika (Jones) Denison of Porter, and her children Johann and Skylar; a daughter, Lindsey, and husband Stephen Dyda, of Stow, Mass.; his sister, Deborah, and husband Alan Schock, of Cape Elizabeth; niece and goddaughter Jennifer (Schock) Haskell and her daughter, Elizabeth, of Middletown, R.I.; his four grandchildren, Brady and Abigail Denison and Amelia and Jack Dyda. Linc was very excited about the upcoming arrival of his fifth grandchild, Bristol, due in early June. Also survived by several beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.
