Marshall H. Weeman Jr., 90, of Kennebunk, passed away on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at the Maine Veterans Home in Scarborough. He was born in Portland on September 26, 1932 a son of the late Marshall H. and Juliette M. (Roy) Weeman. He attended Kennebunk schools and then attended high school at St. John’s Prep School in Danvers, MA. where he graduated in 1950. He studied engineering at the University of Maine Orono and then enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served four years.
In 1959 he married Jeanne Lebarge and they made their home in Kennebunk where they raised their four children. He was a devout Catholic and a life long communicant of St. Martha's Parish in Kennebunk. He was very active in the parish where he was involved in various ministries, including the choir and lector. In 1997 he retired from the Portsmouth Navy Shipyard with over 41 years of service.
An avid gardener, he enjoyed growing and tending to his flower and vegetable gardens. He believed in organic gardening using natural products only. He also enjoyed taking family photos and documenting his travels with the Shipyard through pictures and videos. One of his favorite things to do was spend quality time at the family camp on Bonney Eagle Lake in Standish with others.
He was born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare eye disease, that eventually left him blind and confined him to his home in his later years which was very debilitating to him as he was no longer able to do the things that he loved most.
