Chuck on Kent Island

Chuck on Kent Island

It is with great sadness that we let you know of the death of Charles “Chuck” Huntington, our Founding Director and Professor Emeritus, Bowdoin College.

Chuck is survived by his wife, Louise S. Huntington, whom he married on December 22, 1956; three children, William E. Huntington, Katherine C. Huntington, and Sarah C. Huntington; and four granddaughters and a grandson. He was predeceased by a son, George S. Huntington. There will be a memorial service for Chuck at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 4, at the Kellogg Church in Harpswell.

We are grateful for the time we were able to share with him.
