Rockland — David O. Winslow, 67, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017, at his home following an extended illness.

Born in Damariscotta March 14, 1950, he was the son of Robert and Paulina Chickering Winslow, who predeceased him.  He attended schools in Newcastle and Waldoboro until enlisting in the Army in 1969. At that time, he served his country in the Vietnam War.

After being discharged from the Army, David had various jobs. He always said one of his most rewarding jobs was working alongside Bobby Williams at Brooks Monuments. In David's spare time he enjoyed playing online games, watching Judge Judy, and always looked forward to cheering on the Patriots at football season.

Besides his wife, Christine Tower Winslow, and their fur baby, Lucy, David is survived by three children, Candi Tower and her companion, Elbert Ranquist, Carrie Tower-Reid and her husband, Peter, and Jason Tower and his companion, Andrea Guy, all of Rockland; a brother, Edmund Winslow, of Warren; a sister, Lida Upham, and her husband, Albion, of Warren; and his brother, Michael Bennett, with whom he recently reconnected. David is also survived by 11 grandchildren, who were the light of his life and referred to him as ‘Pappy,’ including Laci and her companion, Kenny, Mya, Leon, Lamar, Trevor and his companion, Alexis, Leo, and Gavyn, Jordan, Jasmine, Kennedy and Jayla; as well as many nieces and nephews. He loved all his grandchildren, but always had a special spot in his heart for his two oldest grandchildren, Trevor and Laci. David was a strong male influence in their lives.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit from 1 to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock St., Rockland, where a funeral service will be held at 2 p.m.
