Albert L. Hamor

Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor

Albert L. Hamor, 76, from Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor and Tucson, Ariz., went to be with the Lord on April 22, 2022. Albert fought a brief, but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born as the third son of Richard N. and Rhoda (Murphy) Hamor.

He is survived by his beloved wife and soulmate, Carol (Wallace) Hamor; children, Wendy and Christopher Loucks, Dawn Gagner and Douglas Wallace and James White and Lisa Alley; and brothers and wives, Richard and Helga Hamor and Steven and Patricia Hamor. Albert also leaves much loved grandchildren, Zachary Mitchell, Shaun and Kayla Crockett, Devin Sprague and Jack White, and six great-grandchildren. He is also survived by an aunt, nephews, nieces and cousins and many friends all over the world. He was predeceased by his Murphy and Hamor grandparents, his parents and a daughter, Tammy White, who also passed from cancer.

After serving in the Army, Albert returned to Maine and worked in construction for a time before he went to work for the town of Mount Desert as a dispatcher. There he found his great passion in the Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service. He and Carol worked side by side volunteering for the service in many capacities for a combined total of 65 years.

When he left the town, he began his 26 years with the Asticou Inn as maintenance and grounds supervisor, retiring in 2014. After spending many summers camping at Hadley’s Point Campground, Albert and Carol made a move to begin a retirement life in Tucson, Ariz. They made many new friends there but continued to return to Maine and the campground in the summer, to see family and friends.

A graveside service will be held on Sept. 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the Forest Hills Cemetery in Northeast Harbor. As there is no seating, please feel free to bring a chair.

Know when to pay your respects.
