F. Harlan Clock, Jr., 89, of Alfred passed away June 1, 2021 at Southern Maine Healthcare in Biddeford.
He was born October 6, 1931, son of Frank Harlan Clock and Nellie (McGall) Clock. Harlan was a graduate of Hamilton High School in Hamilton, MA and earned his degree from Essex Agricultural. He was a proud farmer, through and through; owning and operating the dairy farm known as “Tic Toc Farm”. He loved attending the local fairs and was presented with an award for his farming. He proudly served in the U. S. Army in Korea.
Harlan was an unassuming, quiet, stoic type of man with tons of moral fiber (without wearing it on his shirtsleeve) but a rock-steady presence in the lives of those who loved him. He was a member of the Bethel Christian Church and the Bauneg Beg Grange in North Berwick. Harlan drove bus for MSAD #60 for several years and enjoyed the kids on his bus.
Sail on Dad, Papa, enjoy that Big (Jersey Cow) Dairy farm in the sky, (where the butterfat content is 8%!) Thank you for your service to our country and being an amazing role model to all of us.
