Jared L. Nightingale

PITTSTON – Jared L. Nightingale, 69, of Pittston died unexpectedly Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021 at his home following complications from a surgery. He was born in Augusta on Dec. 2, 1951, the son of Robert and Lola (Vigue) Nightingale.

Jared lived a full life and is flying with the eagles. Jared enjoyed the outdoors, taking pictures and playing with his dog, Zelda who will be well cared for by her friends Helen and Joe.

Jared was a Harley Davidson rider and lover. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, motorcycle rides with friends and doing outdoor projects with his tractor and tools. He loved taking folks on boat rides, having cookouts and fireworks on the point. He loved the United States of America and flew the flag proudly!

Jared was a Master Electrician for many years. He did jobs that brightened up people’s worlds, no matter how big or small.

Jared will be remembered by his kindness, love for humanity and four legged friends. Jared had a heart of gold and was ready and willing to help when needed. Jared had a contagious love that he shared with many others.

Jared’s pride and joy were his friends and family. His son Jason Bowie and wife, Betsy Lewis-Bowie; grandson Jared Bowie and fiancée Dania Feleo, grandson Briar Bowie and granddaughter Katherine Bowie, of Richmond; his companion, Donna Butterfield of Pittston; and many friends and compatriots from across Maine and America.

Arrangements are entrusted thru Staples Funeral Home and Cremation Care, 53 Brunswick Ave., Gardiner. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared with the family on the obituary page of the Staples Funeral Home website: http://www.familyfirstfuneralhomes.com

There will be no celebration of life at this time. A Spring graveside service may be held at the Riverside Cemetery Annex, in Pittston, where he will be placed with his mother, Lola Nightingale and wife, Karen O’Donnell Nightingale.

We would ask you hug your loved ones and pets. Jared would want us to continue his legacy by being kind, offering to help when able, and to live life to the fullest!!
