Medway- Rodney (Larry) McDonald, 70, died peacefully at home with his family by his side on June 5, 2020. Larry was born May 20, 1950, and lived in Sherman, ME. He spent his childhood there, where he learned the value of hard work on the family farm. After high school, Larry was hired in the Millinocket mill, moved to Medway, and worked in the Millinocket mill for 31 years. After the mill, he worked driving truck all over the US and Canada for 13 years, until he retired in 2015. Larry was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
