WARREN - Edward C. Barrett, 96, died peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family, Friday, September 25, 2020.

Born in Mars Hill, September 17, 1924 he was the son of Dennison and Edna Hannington Barrett. In Ed’s early teens he and his family moved to Warren where he was educated, graduating from Warren High School in 1943.

He enlisted in the Marine Corps in the fall of 1943 and was sent to the Pacific Theater for three years before being Honorably Discharged.

Returning to the States, Ed met Nancy Charlotte Libby at a dance at the Grange Hall. The pair were married October 4, 1947. Together they made their first home at the Cutting Farm in South Warren, owned by Edward C. Cutting. There Ed worked as a herdsman and farm manager.

In 1958 Ed built his home for his family in Warren. He later moved on to the work for the Maine State Prison, serving as the Farm Superintendent for many years. Ed retired from the prison in 1986.

Ed and Nancy enjoyed taking their RV on trips, especially local fairs. They especially enjoyed attending the Fryeburg Fair where cattle judging and horse shows were a favorite pastime. They both had a special place in their hearts for animals.

Ed was known as a fine craftsmen and woodworker. He often made furniture and toys for his grandchildren. Making trucks and old wagons, reminiscent of his childhood toys, was something he greatly enjoyed. His work earned him many blue ribbons from local fairs.

Ed was a member of the Warren Lodge of Masons, and was very proud to have received his 50 year pin. He and Nancy were active members of the Second Congregational Church of Warren. Together they enjoyed the ‘couples club’ hosted at the church. The church fund-raising, musical talent show complete with homemade costumes, ticket sales and local advertising was a favorite event for many years. Ed and Nancy enjoyed 71 wonderful years together.

Predeceased by his wife Nancy in 2018; his brothers, Frank and Fred Barrett; and a sister Annabelle Maxcy; Ed is survived by his sister Vella Smith of Warren; sister-in-law Kathleen Anderson and her husband Ronald of Warren; his children, Susan Bennett and her husband Barry of Warren, Robert Barrett and his wife Vicki of Warren; his grandchildren, Glenn Nelson and his wife Kelly of Ashland, New Hampshire, Jenny Hibl and her husband Scott of Warren, Jason Bennett of Warren, Heath Barrett and his wife Kailey of Warren, great-grandchildren, Alyssa Nelson and her spouse Emily of Bangor, Erica Blanchette and her husband Kyle of Bangor, Hunter Hibl of Warren, Callahan and Quinn Barrett of Warren; great-great-grandchildren, Evan and Addison Blanchette of Bangor; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Ed’s family will remember his life privately. He and Nancy will be laid to rest together at Village Cemetery in Thomaston. Please share memories and condolences with the Barrett family, here on their Book of Memories.

Our condolences go out to you Bob and Vicki and the entire family. I had the pleasure of meeting your dad a few years back and left in tears of laughter. To say Ed could tell a story is an understatement. Our hearts are with you .
