John Wellwood Obituary

John F. Wellwood, Sr. of North Berwick, ME, and most recently of Fitchburg, MA, passed away after a long illness at UMass Health Alliance Hospital in Leominster, MA. He was born September 1, 1965 in York, ME, son of Allen and Rosemarie (Lauzé) Wellwood. He was a 1985 graduate of Noble High School and was employed for many years with the State of Maine Dept. of Transportation.

John was a family man and avid sportsman, always fishing, hunting, or entering bow competitions with his sons. He coached numerous baseball teams in North Berwick and was a respected umpire in many games throughout the years.

He was also a race car enthusiast, frequently helping out as a crew member in the pit stops at Lee USA Speedway and in the garages of his drivers.

John would often be found baking or cooking family favorites from his mom’s recipes that were passed down. He would also try his hand at brewing different types of beer with his friend, Todd Marsh. He would always have a vegetable garden, and would update every one of the sagas he would have with the woodchucks.

He and Crystal had an interest in local history and would be seen at the North Berwick Historical Society’s fundraisers and events with his brother, Tom.

He was pre-deceased by his parents, brothers Alan and Douglas, and sister Tina (Bridges) Trudeau. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Crystal (Nolette), son John Jr. of Springvale, ME, son Lee and girlfriend Cassidy Benoit of Fitchburg, MA, a brother Thomas and wife Jennifer of Sanford, ME, father & mother-in-law Jerry and Linda Nolette, brother-in-law Rick Nolette and wife Cynthia, all of Limington, ME, sister-in-law Missy Hall and husband Arthur of Lexington, KY, along with several nieces and nephews.
