Calvin “Roy” Bragg, 88, died peacefully at his home Dec. 22, 2009, in Waldoboro.

He was born April 4, 1921, the son of Calvin and Ella Stevens Bragg. He grew up in Sabattus and moved to Waldoboro at the age of 5 and attended local schools. As a boy he worked at his father’s junkyard and Bragg’s Auto Parts store.

He started the Esso Garage in the 1950s then moved into the Mobil station in 1956, retiring in 1983 to his home in Waldoboro.

He bowled at DePatsy’s Lanes in a league. After retiring he enjoyed hunting and fishing. One of his most prized possessions was his garden. He loved to plant seeds and watch them grow. One thing he enjoyed was giving away his vegetables. He was also known to give away a can or two of Pauline’s canned goods. He loved animals and was very excited when his dog Missy learned how to fetch his slippers and socks.
