Lincoln – Harold E. Woodard, 89, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Friday, August 16, 2019 at a Bangor health care facility. He was born August 9, 1930 in Lincoln, the son of Byron E. and Mildred F. (Beek) Woodard.

Harold grew up in Lincoln, and was a graduate of Mattanawcook Academy. He served as a Medic with the 16th Crash and Rescue in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, earning an honorable discharge as a decorated soldier. After his service, he returned to Lincoln where he worked various jobs, including trucking, and eventually began a career with the Lincoln Police Department, becoming a well loved and respected police officer. Harold loved being outdoors, spending time with his family, reading his newspaper, and being on his computer – his favorite pastime. Many happy memories were made with his family taking trips and travelling over the years. He will be remembered as the best husband, father, grandpa, and friend.

In addition to his parents, Harold was predeceased by his first wife, Eileen (Coffin) Woodard, and a brother, Donald Woodard.

I have always loved Harold, he was the kindest man. I really looked up to Harold when I was a child, he always was in such a great mood, smiling and welcomed us neighborhood kids anytime we came to visit and hang out with the kids. I'm truly sorry for the family's loss. My husband and I send out condolences and wish we could attend the service but we are going to be out of the State until Sunday evening. My Love to you all

My deepest condolences in the loss of your dad. Carolee, we went to school together and I remember your dad's quiet demeanor, but wide smile and grin.

Harold was such a kind and fair man, just wanted to keep us safe. From a very young age he was always friendly and respected by me and so many of my friends. I will miss waving to him when traveling up High Street - always made me smile! My thoughts are with his family...
