Brian L. Sanborn, 55, passed away at Northern Light Hospital on Dec. 21, 2021, from the effects of COVID into the arms of our Lord in heaven after learning of the death of his wife, Brenda, three days prior. Brian was born on Sept. 22, 1966, to Judith Rollerson Sanborn and Eugene Sanborn.
Brian was a giant of a man with one of the softest hearts people had ever seen. Brian had been in the movie industry as well being known as Bull Moose Calhoon on the wrestling circuit when he was younger. He loved children and enjoyed entertaining them going fishing, camping and riding with them on the wood roads. He loved talking with people and seemed to know everyone he met. He was an all-tourney basketball player in high school and received a full scholarship to Florida Tech in Melbourne, Fla. He belonged to the DEEMI search and rescue organization and took part in many search and rescue operations over the years. He also was a trained EMT. He was a member of the Acadia Frontiersmen and enjoyed the fellowship of the group.
Brian was predeceased by his wife, Brenda Sanborn and grandparents Darrell and Ruth Rollerson and Levi and Francis Sanborn. He leaves behind his mother, Judith White, his father, Eugene Sanborn, his brother Daniel Sanborn and his wife, Marlee. He was dearly loved by his stepmother Joanne Sanborn, his stepbrother Richard Henderson and his wife, Nicky, and stepbrother Lee Henderson and his wife, Tamara.
Brian leaves two stepdaughters, Bobbi Roberts and her husband, Calc, and Hollie Finkle and her husband, Justin. He is also survived by his grandchildren, who were the center of his world, Kiara, Landon, Kevin, Bowen, Briella and Gwendolyn.
Brian loved animals and will be sorely missed by his cats Sissy and Kiki, who he talked of often.
There will be no gathering to honor Brian at this time. It will wait until spring to celebrate his and Brenda’s life in an outdoor setting.
