Biography:

Jeffrey M. Skolfield of Lisbon Falls, following a 3 year battle with Cancer and other health related issues, has left us on Saturday, March 14, 2015 in search of a new hunting ground; a place where the rivers and streams run quietly, the wind is in his face, and the green clover fields are filled with deer.

Jeffrey was born in Skowhegan on Dec. 6th, 1955 the son of Ezra (Bud) and Phyllis Skolfield of Lisbon Falls, he graduated from Lisbon High School the Class of 1975

He was a member of the Lisbon Falls Fire Dep’t in the mid-70s and early 80s. In September of 1976 he was among the first Maine firefighters to graduate from the Maine State Fire Academy at  the Northern Maine Vocational Technical Institute in Presque Isle. He was an electrician and got his start by helping family friend and neighbor Jim Kelly wire houses after school and on weekends. After highschool he went on to work full time with Jim at Enterprise Electric. He worked for a few other electrical contractors including Huston and Frena, and L&B Electric of Lisbon falls. He owned and operated Cedar Pond Electric until his illness forced him into retirement.

He was a huge motorcycle enthusiast, and had ridden across the country on his Harley-Davidsons.

He enjoyed playing cribbage, and taking trips to the 5th, St. John area, and also owning and shooting fine hunting rifles. He was an excellent marksman. Jeffery loved to hunt. His passion for deer hunting was immense, and he has taken many nice deer. As his illness grew worse, his goal was to get to hunt one last year, and with the help of his friends and brothers he did.
