Frank “Wayne” Birch, 79

March 31, 1938 – February 1, 2018. Frank Wayne Birch liked to be called Wayne. He died peacefully at home in New Gloucester, Maine on February 1, 2018. He is survived by his wife Beth, children Larry, Sharon, Vikki and stepdaughter Katie, five grandchildren and one great granddaughter and, of course, their dog, Belle. 
Wayne spent most of his life in and around the construction industry. Over his lifetime he worked in hardware, painting, carpentry, and a stint at VEPCO before settling in as a senior Construction Official for Plainsboro Township and eventually Montgomery Township, both in the State of New Jersey. He graduated from Princeton High School, served in the Army and was a volunteer fireman for many years.
Wayne retired from Montgomery Township in 2001 and moved to his beloved Maine with Beth and their golden retrievers. He loved the woods, fishing, and taking care of home. He was a quiet, gentle man who noticed when a relative, friend or neighbor needed a hand and was quick to selflessly help out. He also had many wonderful stories to tell. One of his favorites was about making snowshoes with fellow building contractor and local personality, Sully Greenwood in Farmington, Maine and selling them to L.L. Bean. 
In his last year and a half, he received the most wonderful, compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to: Maine Cancer Foundation – https://mainecancer.org/or Androscoggin Home Hospice – https://www.ahch.org/
