Bradley G. Wescott Sr.

Date of Death: January 11, 2024

Date of Birth: February 26, 1934


Lifetime Freeport resident, Bradley Wescott, 89, passed away peacefully in his home January 11, 2024. Brad was born at the Freeport Hospital and grew up on Pleasant Hill Rd. In 1957 he purchased 96 Pleasant Hill Rd just a few doors from his family home. Except for the 2 years he was drafted into the Army, he proudly lived on and loved this property for the remainder of his life. Brad recalled his childhood with fond memories of bare feet, farm chores, and fishing at Bibber Brook and the Mill Stream.

One of the main themes of Brad’s life was hard work, being outdoors, and self-sufficiency. He worked at LL Bean, lobstered, logged and milled lumber with his father, and worked for Freeport Fuel and Grain. He was most proud of being an electrician at Union Mutual for 31 years. When not at work he cared for his property and often lent a hand to neighbors. Two of his favorite sayings were "Make do, do without, use it up, wear it out" and “If it’s gonna be, it’s up to me”.

Brad had many passions and pastimes over the years. In his younger years he loved camping, fishing, hunting, ATV’ing, gardening, and keeping livestock. Later in life he set hunting aside and thoroughly enjoyed feeding all the wildlife that arrived in his yard. He was a proud Army veteran. After wife, Mary, developed leukemia he donated blood plasma at the Red Cross for 15 years donating 223 units. He was passionate about his family, friends, big hugs, drinking coffee, maintaining his five-acre field to near golf course standards, junking metal, and telling jokes. His humor persisted to the end. When visiting nurses asked “How do you feel?” he’d respond “with my hands”.

Brad married high school sweetheart Patricia Henderson at age 19. Divorcing after 17 years of marriage and three children, it wasn’t long before he met and married Mary Travierso. He lovingly welcomed her three daughters into the blended family, followed by a daughter of their own. Mary passed after 29 years of marriage and many happy adventures together, including traveling the US and Europe together. Several years later Brad reconnected with high school classmate Anne LeClair, whom he adored and spent his remaining 10 years with.

He is predeceased by brother Walter Robert Wescott, brother Reginald Owen Wescott, father Robert Reginald Wescott, mother Josephine (Morse) Wescott, wife Mary (Travierso) Wescott, and grandson Bradley Alexander Wescott. He is survived by partner Anne (Smith) LeClair, brother Irving Gilbert “Gibby” Wescott / sister-in-law Deborah Wichenpaw-Wescott / nephew Jai Paul Wescott; daughter Catherine Wescott / son-in-law Drew Starkweather / granddaughters Alicia and Amelia; son Bradley G.
