Clinton E. Andrews, 73, beloved husband and father, and well known resident of Limerick, died at his home on January 6, 2020.
Clint was born on March 7, 1946 in Portland, the son of Charles S. and Thelma W. (Dunnels) Andrews, Sr.
Clint attended the Newfield School and graduated from Sanford High School in 1965; shortly after graduation, he married his wife Joanne in Newfield at the home of her parents. They purchased their home and farm in October 1965 where the family still resides. Clint served the Town of Limerick as its Constable for many years as well as serving the town for years on Limerick’s first budget committee. He was also a founding member of the Northern York County Rod and Gun Club, where he served as its secretary for several years.
Clint and Joanne worked in real estate with his mother-in-law, Hilda L. Perry and then co-owned Joanne L. Andrew Real Estate in Limerick until changing professions in 2004 becoming the Town of Waterboro’s Solid Waste Manager and licensed Maine Transfer Station Operator; a position he held until his passing.
The family worked together to establish Owls Hill Acres Farm and Forest Inc. raising Polled Hereford cattle a herd they maintain to date, after saying that he had been there and done that too long, he turned the farm operation over to Wade and Perry several years ago. The family spent every summer and into the fall attending as many as eleven fairs a year; where the boys learned their work ethic from their dad. The family has shown their cattle at Fryeburg Fair since 1975 in 2019 it marked the 44th consecutive year and the 4th generation in the show ring.
Clint had a passion for hunting, a love of antiquing, all animals, and in the later years raising Daylilies, Hosta and other perennials in their extensive home gardens.
What Clint prized the most was the love of his wife and family; and always the doting husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was the happiest when he had his family and friends at the farm.
Clint will be dearly missed by his wife and family and by his many friends and neighbors within his community.
Clint is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Joanne Andrews of Limerick; his three sons Wade Andrews and companion Michelle of Newfield; Perry Andrews and wife Robin of Newfield; and Jared Andrews and wife Piper of Missouri; ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren; and one brother, Charles S. Andrews, Jr. Clint was predeceased by his parents and by his grandson, Travis Andrews.
Family and friends are invited to call on Friday, January 10, 2020 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak St., in Alfred. A Celebration of Clint’s life will be held later in the spring.
As the family has deep connections to the Limerick, Newfield and Waterboro communities, please consider donating in Clint’s memory to your local Emergency Medical Services.
