Hall Funeral Home welcomes new office staff
Thomaston — Hall Funeral Home and Cremation Services welcomes Ron Gamage as its office administrator.
Gamage grew up in the Midcoast and has always been proud of his maritime heritage, having come from a large line of master shipbuilders. After graduating from Rockland District High School, he embarked on a career in retail and started working at a local supermarket. He then entered a 15-year successful career in the real estate business. After 15 years, one of his listings got he and his wife thinking about being store owners, so they embarked on a 14-year job as convenience store owners. That property was later purchased by the state of Maine and will be raised to make room for a new bridge, which will replace the aging one.
Gamage came to Hall Funeral Home as a licensed attendant in 2012 and has recently added more duties to his employment taking on administration work in the Thomaston office. He will continue to make the Thomaston building shine by attending to the landscaping.
In addition to his work life, Gamage served on the school board in Thomaston for 10 years along with many other town committees and boards. He is a member of the Orient Lodge of Masons in Thomaston and has been the treasurer for many years. Gamage and his wife Jackie have two children. A daughter, Krystal, is a high school history teacher at Oceanside High School East in Rockland and a son, Dylan, is a junior at Oceanside East.
Gamage's outside interests include working on his lawn and gardens at home, stock car racing, collecting black and white photography, spending time with his family, as well as enjoying the love of his two Boston Terriers — Willie and Sadie.
“It is an honor to help families celebrate the lives of their loved ones,” Gamage said.
He looks forward to working with the staff at Hall Funeral Homes and is proud to work for a family business that has served Midcoast Maine for more than 50 years. He can be reached at Hall’s in Thomaston at 354-6475 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
