Richard Else, 95, of Damariscotta died at the Cove’s Edge Nursing Home on the evening of Jan. 24, 2010.

Born Feb. 10, 1914, in New York City, he was the son of Frederick J. and Elizabeth (Hentrich) Else.

Richard was a carpenter and antique dealer, but more than anything he was a loving husband to his wife of more than 60 years, the late Anna (Roberts) Else. Together with Anna, the couple operated an antique shop out of their home for over 38 years.

He is survived by several nieces, and will be greatly missed by many.

There will be no services. He will be laid to rest beside his wife in the Harrington Cemetery in Pemaquid in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to Cove’s Edge Nursing Home, 26 Schooner St., Damariscotta, ME 04543.

Arrangements are with the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home in Damariscotta. Condolences for the family may be express at
