THOMASTON – Jeffrey N. Gallagher, 66, died unexpectedly, Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

Born December 21, 1952, in Caribou, he was the son of Burnell and Florence Monson Gallagher. Educated in the County, he was a 1971 graduate of Caribou High School.

Following high school Jeff attended the Maine Criminal Justice Program and was employed with several Police Departments in the County over the years. Jeff also worked as a Park Ranger at Baxter State Park.
Jeff loved the outdoors and being on the water and spent career with the Maine State Marine Patrol. In 1978 Jeff married his best-friend and soul mate, Suzanne Perreault. Together they made their first home on Vinalhaven where Jeff was first stationed. Later Jeff patrolled the Camden Rockport area before finishing his career in Augusta. There he served as assistant to the Chief before retiring in 2000 with the rank of Sergeant.

One of Jeff’s favorite pastimes was canoeing on the Allagash with his brother, Jon. Together they developed a love of antique boat motors and often used them to power their canoe. Snowmobiling and skiing also kept him busy in the winter. He even served as manager of his high school’s ski team as a young man.

After retirement, Jeff kept busy, and most recently he was employed as an insurance agent with Cross Insurance. A man of many trades and talents, he owned his own mowing and bush-hogging business.
Jeff had a deep faith in Jesus Christ and took every opportunity he could to share his faith with others. He was a founding and active member of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Camden and considered the congregation there his second family. Jeff’s family remembers him as a people person who could strike up a conversation with just about everyone he met.

He had a special place in his heart for animals, especially ‘Misty’ who he had brought home one year a surprise for his wife. Later in life he was proud to show off his beloved ‘grand-dogs’ Josie, Willow and Izzy.
He will be sadly missed by all who loved him.

Predeceased by his parents; and his sister Jane Gallagher; Jeff is survived by his wife, Suzanne Gallagher of Thomaston; his daughter Jillian Gallagher of Augusta; his brother Jon Gallagher and his wife Karen; his nephew Michael Gallagher; his nieces, Monica Gallagher of Hope, Sarah Pollard and her husband Thomas of Longwood, FL; an aunt Patricia Conroy of Grants Pass, OR; several other nieces and nephews, and a large loving extended family from Aroostook County.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, October 4, 2019 at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

My condolences to Jeff's family. I have not known Jeff for very long, but in that short time, it was easy to see that he had a kind heart, was very generous, and had a good sense of humor. It has been difficult seeing his empty desk, and I will miss his attempts to sing along with the radio. My heart goes out to his loved ones and I hope in time, your pain will ease.

Dear Suzanne and Jillian, I am so sorry to learn of Jeff's passing. When I saw you in Walmart, Jillian, I had no idea at the time that you were dealing with tremendous loss. When I worked for the postal service, Jeff was always one of my favorites. He was always so easy going and friendly, a delight to have as a customer and friend. My heart feels your grief. Know that I am thinking of you in the days ahead. With sincere sympathy, Cindy Leonard
